Leading national thinking on politics, government & public policy through Open Access research

Strathprints makes available scholarly Open Access content by researchers in the School of Government & Public Policy, based within the Faculty of Humanities & Social Sciences.

Research here is 1st in Scotland for research intensity and spans a wide range of domains. The Department of Politics demonstrates expertise in understanding parties, elections and public opinion, with additional emphases on political economy, institutions and international relations. This international angle is reflected in the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC) which conducts comparative research on public policy. Meanwhile, the Centre for Energy Policy provides independent expertise on energy, working across multidisciplinary groups to shape policy for a low carbon economy.

Abstract

Following the results of an earlier pilot study, a previous termfull-scalenext term remediation project was undertaken at an operational factory in the Dutch town of Zwolle over a 59 week period between August 2002 and September 2003. Contamination from chlorinated aliphatic hydrocarbons (CAHs) in the source zone was treated using a novel gas injection and nebuliser system called previous termLINER.next term Ethyl lactate was selected as a carbon substrate to stimulate in situ bioremediation. It was atomised and injected at a rate of 500 ml/day over a 3 min duration from 6 no injection wells with a total of 12 no injection filters at 24-25 and 44-45 m depth. The performance of the remediation previous termtechniquenext term was observed using an array of groundwater monitoring wells. The results are variable with biodegradation to ethene proceeding well at depths of 14-15 and 44-45 m depth. Limitations in biodegradation were attributed to the variations in stratigraphy and limited zone of influence near the injection points.
