Abstract
Respirometer studies were used to determine the benefits of mixing soy bean hulls with gravel contaminated with petroleum products. The aerob ic conditions prevailing in the respirometer maintained significant mi crobiological activity. A reduction in petrochemical concentrations wa s detected, whether the contaminated gravel was treated with agricultu ral by-products or not, but at a slightly faster rate with the treatme nt.
