Abstract

In this study, the impact of bacterial and fungal processes on 14C-hexadecane mineralisation was investigated in weathered hydrocarbon contaminated soil. The extent of 14C-hexadecane mineralisation varied depending on the bioremediation strategy employed. Under enhanced natural attenuation conditions, 14C-hexadecane mineralisation after 98days was 8.5??3.7% compared to
