Methods for the Determination of Mineral Oil Hydrocarbons in Soil Materials for the Evaluation of Remediation Measures

  • J. Bundt


In the majority of cases the currently contaminated and problem sites result from a pollution with mineral oils and their derived products. For the investigation and the registration of such mineral oil contaminated materials, as well as for the selection of suitable measures of treatment and remediation, the physico-chemical analysis is a major requirement.
