The OMH Process

In the United States a large scale slurry bioreactor (750 m3) was used to treat creosote-contaminated lagoon solids stabilized with fly ash (total PAH was 11 g kg-1). An extensive pretreatment to classify the material was combined with an aerated and stirred (900 rpm) bioreactor (20% solids load). Remediation with respect to the PAH contaminants was determined to be 82%-99% conversion for the 3- and 4-ring PAHs and 34%-78% for PAHs having more rings (Jerger et al., 1993).
