This in situ soil processing technology is primarily a separation and removal technique for extracting contaminants from soils. Description: Figure Typical In Situ Electrokinetic Separation System The principle of electrokinetic remediation relies upon application of a low-intensity direct current through the soil between ceramic. @article{osti_, title = {Removal of radionuclides by electrokinetic soil processing}, author = {Parker, R.A.}, abstractNote = {Electrokinetics promises to be an innovative treatment process for in-situ treatment of soils and groundwater contaminated with heavy metals and radionuclides. Electrokinetics refers to the movement of ionic liquids and charged particles relative to one another. Electrokinetic soil processing is a promising technology for cleaning up soils or slurries contaminated with certain radionuclides, heavy metals, or organic compounds. This process applies a low-level direct current (dc) between a pair of electrodes placed in a contaminated soil to establish an electric by: COVID Resources. Reliable information about the coronavirus (COVID) is available from the World Health Organization (current situation, international travel).Numerous and frequently-updated resource results are available from this ’s WebJunction has pulled together information and resources to assist library staff as they consider how to handle coronavirus.

Electrokinetic soil remediation is one of the most promising soil decontamination processes because it has high removal efficiency and time effectiveness in low permeability soils, such as clay. Electrokinetic remediation coupled with Fenton oxidation, widely called as Electrokinetic Fenton process, is a potential soil remediation technique used for low permeable soil. The applicability of the process has been proved with soil contaminated with a wide range of organic compounds from phenol to the most recalcitrant ones such as Author: Anshy Oonnittan, Mika Sillanpää. Electrokinetic soil processing is an innovative in situ technique to remove contaminants from soils and groundwater. The process is an alternative to conventional processes, with significant eco­ nomic and technical advantages. This paper provides a compre­ hensive review of File Size: 5MB.

Electrokinetic remediation is an environmental technique especially developed for the removal of contaminants in soil, sediments and sludge, although it can be applied to any solid porous material. Electrokinetic remediation is based in the application of a direct electric current of low intensity to the porous matrix to be decontaminated [ 21 ].Cited by: Abstract. Electrokinetic remediation, variably named as electrokinetic soil processing, electromigration, electrochemical decontamination or electroreclamation, uses electric currents to extract heavy metals, radionuclides, certain organic compounds, or mixed inorganic species and . It is also known as electroreclamation, electrokinetic soil processing and electrochemical decontamination. Figure 1 depicts a general illustration of an electrokinetic system.

Electrokinetic processing has been used to inject representative cationic and anionic nutrients into soil layers, which have widely different hydraulic and electrical conductivities.
