Abstract

Focuses on the capacities of five different finished compost materials to remove TCE from head space vapors in small reaction flasks. Enrichment of compost materials with propane or methane as primary substrates was tested as a means to stimulate biological TCE removal. All of the materials tested removed at least 85% of the added TCE (initial head space concentration = 5.0 ppmv) without enrichment and over 99% total removal was observed in samples enriched with propane gas. -from Authors
