Abstract

In this study, PCB was added to soil, with and without activated carbon, to determine its uptake by plants and goldfish and to measure the efficiency of carbon on reducing its bioavailability. It is found that addition of activated carbon to the soil inactivated PCB and completely eliminated the inhibitory effects of PCB on plant growth and water use.
