Influence of Different Salts on the Degradation of Trichloroethylene under Reductive Condition
The effect of TCE cometabolism degradation with glucose as electron donor on reduction progress was investigated with enriched nitrate, sulfate, trivalent iron and their mixtures under anoxic or anaerobic conditions. The removal effect of TCE was found to be better in anoxic environment; TCE degradation was inhibited by the addition of trivalent iron salts and the mixed salts under anoxic condition or strongly inhibited by nitrate under anaerobic condition; promoted by the addition of trivalent iron salts under anaerobic condition; little inhibited by the addition of nitrate and sulfate under anoxic condition or sulfate and the mixed salts under anaerobic condition.
