Humic acids enhanced removal of aromatic hydrocarbons from contaminated aquifers : developing a sustainable technology / S. Lesage, S. Brown, K. Millar and K. Novakowski.: En13-5/00-82E-PDF

"The paper includes a description and results of the experiments that was conducted over the last five years in the AQUEREF facility at NWRI and that was largely funded by the Panel on Energy Research and Development (PERD), a fund administered by Natural Resources Canada. The experiment showed that using a solution of humic acid and recirculating it through the contaminated soil, it was possible to dissolve and degrade the diesel fuel in an artificial spill. The results of smaller laboratory scale experiments showing that the method is not only effective, but is also cheaper than using surfactants, are also included"--Management perspective.
