Landfarming Impact Factor
An ex-situ waste
treatment method that is executed in the upper soil zone or in biotreatment cells
is Land farming. Contaminated soils, sludges or sediments are transported to the land farming site, injected into the soil surface and frequently turned over to aerate the mixture. Land Farming is a bioremediation
technology. Contaminated soils are mixed with soil amendments such as nutrients and soil bulking agents, and then they are cultivated into the earth. The material is usually tilled for aeration. Contaminants are transformed, degraded, and immobilized by microbiological processes and by oxidation. Soil conditions are managed to enhance the rate of contaminant degradation. Moisture content, frequency of aeration, and pH are all conditions that may be directed. Land Farming varies from composting because it normally absorbs contaminated soil into soil that is uncontaminated. Composting also usually takes place in above ground piles.
