Evaluation of plant-microorganism synergy for the remediation of diesel fuel contaminated soil

Evaluation of plant-microorganism synergy for the remediation of diesel fuel contaminated soil

Bulletin of Environmental Contamination and Toxicology 81(1): 19-24

The remediation of diesel fuel contaminated soil over a 2-year period by the plant-microorganism synergy was evaluated. Results indicated that the growth of Astragalus adsurgens was affected significantly, when the diesel fuel concentration was higher than 10 g kg(-1) dry soil. After a 2-year period, the removal of diesel fuel was > 67%, and about 58-70% removal of aromatic hydrocarbons was obtained in these treatments.
