Abstract
It is well documented that aqueous solutions of dissolved humic substances (DHS) increase the solubility of poorly soluble organic contaminants (Wahle and Kördel, 1997, Rebhun et al., 1996, Kördel et al., 1997). The DHS, through hydrophobic binding of organic contaminants, reduce their sorbability and facilitate desorption and remediation. After penetration through the soils the DHS which is loaded with contaminants can easily be coagulated - precipitated and separated by press-filtration. A further advantage of DHS is their availability and inherent degradability. They are natural soil constituents and they can be used as carbon sources by microorganisms without stimulating the growth to an unwanted extend.
