Project summaryThe development of the methods for recultivation of soils contaminated with polyphenyls by using such biological object as microorganisms-destructors, rain worms and physico-chemical approaches is the major goal of the Project proposed. The Project activities will take place at the territory around "Kondensator" plant (Serpukhov), the soils of which are polluted with polychlorbiphenyls. The Project implies the development of a conception of intensive detoxification of soils by using microorganisms and rain worms.
In order to realize the Project, the following problems should be solved:
- organization of the collection of animals-bioindicators for evaluation of integral toxicity and pollution of soils;
- organization of the collection of microorganisms-destructors of chemically polluted soils; selection of special strains destructing polyphenyls;
- determination of the rate of polyphenyl destruction by using chromatographic methods;
- development of the biotechnology for intensive detoxification of soils polluted with polyphenyls;
- experiments of the recultivation of soils around Serpukhov plant "Kondensator", total area being of 2 hectares.
The Project proposed will permit to use the experience of highly skilled weapons scientists as well as laboratories and equipment available for development of the methods for intensive recultivation of polyphenyl polluted soils.
