Abstract

The objective of this study was to evaluate the removal efficiencies of total petroleum hydrocarbons (TPH) from soil contaminated with used engine oil and crude oil (doses of 0.5 % and 5%) and to determine the fate of TPH at different temperatures (18 C-omicron and 28 C-omicron) for an incubation period of 12 months.
