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 compare those results to untreated soils. 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 longer term ecological toxicity, the mutagenic properties of the soil after treatment, and the effect of ozone micro-doses on ecological toxicity as opposed to the bulk doses used here.
