Risk Assessment and Terrestrial Plant Toxicity of Remediated Heavy Hydrocarbon Impacted Soil
The objective of the research was to determine the short-term ecological toxicity of ozonation byproducts on seed germination and on the mutagenic properties of bacteria. By helping define the eco-toxicity of ozonation techniques, this research will be used when considering the feasibility of field deployment of the previously established ozone techniques. Future research will focus on completion of the 5-year study conducted by the Center and on feasible deployment methods of ozone in contaminated areas.
