METHANOGENIC BIOSTRANSFORMATION OF CHLROINATED HYDROCARBONS IN GROUND WATER

Biotransformation and transport of chlorinated hydrocarbons in a saturated column has been simulated by employing a sequential mathematical model. The model predicts the reductive dehalogenation of dissolved chlorinated aliphatics under anaerobic conditions. The conservation principles expressed in terms of quantification of physical chemical and microbial processes lead to a system of nonlinear partial differential equations governing the phenomenon. The details of the study are described, and the results are discussed. The study results help in the evaluation of various remedial schemes in addition to estimating the magnitude of the initial contamination.
