  1. 1. In situ remediation of contaminated sediments using thin-layer capping : efficiency in contaminant retention and ecological implications

    Författare :Göran S. Samuelsson; Jonas S. Gunnarsson; Bart Koelmans; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Contaminated Sediment Remediation; Activated Carbon; Benthic Community; Ecological Effects; Stress; Resilience; Contaminant Sequestration; Capping Efficiency; Bioavailability; Bioaccumulation; Sediment-to-water fluxes; marin ekotoxikologi; Marine Ecotoxicology;

    Sammanfattning : Hydrophobic organic contaminants (HOCs) often reside in sediments sorbed to particles, most tightly to particles with high content of organic carbon. If persistent, such pollutants can accumulate in the sediment for many years and constitute a contamination risk for sediment-living organisms and organisms at higher trophic levels, including humans.

  2. 2. Ground Monitoring using Resistivity Measurements in Glaciated Terrains

    Författare :Jaana Aaltonen; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Resistivity; DIrect Current; Monitoring; Groundwater; Contaminant; Tracer Test; Geophysics;

    Sammanfattning : The most common method of monitoring and mapping groundwatercontaminants is to extract and analyse a number of groundwatersamples from wells in the investigation area. However, thereare a number of limitations with this type of point-wiseinvestigation, as it is hard to acquire an adequate picture ofa heterogeneous and anisotropic subsurface using a fewpoints.

  3. 3. Innovative Bioreactors for the Degradation of Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons

    Författare :Benoit Guieysse; Bioteknik; []
    Nyckelord :TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; Environmental technology; Bioteknik; Biotechnology; PAH; degradation; aromatic; contaminant; pollutant; bioreactor; organic pollutant; kontroll av utsläpp; Miljöteknik; pollution control;

    Sammanfattning : The development of biological reactors for the treatment of toxic and recalcitrant organic pollutants is a complex task. Firstly, microbial inoculation, acclimation and selection must be optimized to provide the best microflora possible. LÄS MER

  4. 4. In situ remediation of contaminated sediments using thin-layer capping : effectiveness in contaminant retention and ecological implications

    Författare :Göran Samuelsson; Jonas Gunnarsson; Maria Granberg; Stockholms universitet; []
    Nyckelord :NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; Thin layer capping; sediment remediation; activated carbon; contaminated sediment; benthic community; Systems Ecology; systemekologi;

    Sammanfattning : Hydrophobic organic contaminants (HOCs) often reside in sediment sorbed to particles, most tightly to particles with high content of organic carbon. If persistent, such pollutants can accumulate in the sediment for many years and constitute a contamination risk for sediment-living organisms and organisms at higher trophic levels, including humans.

  5. 5. Training measures and technologies for air contaminant risks

    Författare :Karl Gummesson; Marianne Ekman Rising; Ing-Marie Andersson; Gunnar Rosén; Annika Vänje; Mats Bohgard; KTH; []
    Nyckelord :Arbetsmiljö; Attityd; Motivation; Utbildning; Industriell ekonomi och organisation; Industrial Engineering and Management;

    Sammanfattning : AbstractAs air contaminants continue to pose a problem in organizations, more studies are needed to identify and reduce employees’ exposure to air contaminants. Limited research proposes methods for managing air contaminants, especially with focus on reducing exposure by improving safety behavior, safety knowledge, safety attitudes and safety motivation among employees in the workplace, by, for instance, using safety training.
