Whole soil samples were obtained from a site immediately adjacent to an impoundment used for disposal of still bottoms residue from a benzene, toluene and xylenes (BTX) production process. Research examined the effects of other operating conditions on the biotreatment process such as inoculum source, temperature and suspended solids concentration. The effects of humic substances and humic acid metabolites on the biodegradation of polyaryl species and measurements of biological activity also were assessed. Significant reductions of marker species concentrations, often to levels below detection limits, are observed with low, medium and some high molecular weight aromatic and polyaryl species.
