Processes for Electroremediation of Watered Bed Rock
Until recently the methods (such as venting, bioremediation etc.) applied to remediate watered rock beds contaminated with products arising from anthropogenic activities proved to be often time-consuming, which, in turn, leads to an undesirable increase of financial costs. These are the main reasons why new remediation methods are researched and developed. One of the current trends lies in applications of oxidation agents (e.g. hydrogen peroxide, sodium peroxodisulphate, sodium/potassium permanganate).
Another method researched recently consists in application of direct current or possibly its combination with oxidation agents. Its successful application may lead to an increase in decontamination velocity as well as the reduction in the amount of the oxidation agents required.
