Application of soybean oil methyl ester for remediation of PCBs contaminated soil
"The overall objective of this research was to assess suitability of methyl soyate as a potential solvent for remediation of PCB contaminated soil. To meet this objective, a comprehensive experimental approach was undertaken. The approach involved an assessment of PCBs removal from soils under varied conditions. Variables studied examined included extraction period, number of extraction cycles, and extraction temperature. In addition, experiments were also carried to assess the environmental fate of residual methyl soyate under terrestrial and aquatic environments."--Statement of Objectives, leaf 41.
