Title: Tar Creek Superfund Site Remediation: Combined Roles for Biomass, Poultry Litter, Fly Ash and Flu Gas Desulfurization Residues
P3 researchers are promoting cost-effective clean-up methods to restore the value and productivity of the land at the Tar Creek Superfund site in northeastern Oklahoma. Using municipal sludge mixed with agricultural waste product litter from poultry farms, they are immobilizing the toxic metals and regenerating the soil. An added benefit is that the poultry waste will not affect the adjacent watershed containing lakes used for Tulsa's drinking water supply.
