Research overview:
It is a very important and urgent problem in the construction of the society based on recycling to remedy our environment contaminated with endocrine disruptors containing organochlorine compounds such as dioxins and PCBs. In this research, following three kinds of technology are developed and applied to soil polluted with these endocrine disruptors; (1) extraction and destruction by water under high temperature and high pressure, (2) destruction by ultrasonic irradiation, and (3) decomposition by microorganisms.
