ARBRI Research Paper on Soil Remediation Options Published

Tue, 01/09/2018 - 01:00

Contaminated soil and groundwater are environmental hazards that pose a serious threat to human health. Hydrocarbon spills that often occur during oil and gas operations result in loss of soil quality and contamination of groundwater. This may reduce transport of water and air, inhibit microbial activity, and nutrient cycling. The objective of this paper is to introduce life cycle assessment (LCA) within the existing framework of phased environmental site assessments (ESAs) in the selection of soil remedial alternatives for oil and gas well site clean ups
