pdf  Some theoretical aspects of the contaminated soil ecosystems recovery
The peculiarities of soil organic matter alterations under the influence of hydrocarbon contamination provided with experimental data have been described, depending on mineralogical composition, organic matter content, size and composition of soil microbiota, oxidation-recovery environment. Any transformation within the system “contaminated soil - hydrocarbon contaminant” under aerobic conditions is accompanied by CO2 generation; while hindered air access conditions account for generation of CO2, N2, CH4, paraffin and unsaturated homologues of CH4.
Key words: organic matter, hydrocarbon contamination, soil ecosystems, soil recovery.
