ASCE has honored the writing team of W.H. Huang and C.M. Kao, Ph.D., F.ASCE, with the 2017 J. James R. Croes Medal for their paper “Bioremediation of Petroleum-Hydrocarbon Contaminated Groundwater under Sulfate-Reduction Conditions: Effectiveness and Mechanism Study,” Journal of Environmental Engineering, March 2016.

Bioremediation of petroleum-hydrocarbon contaminated groundwater is challenging. This paper presents a laboratory column experiment where synthetic groundwater – containing benzene, toluene, and methyl tert-butyl ether – was treated under sulfate-reducing conditions created by using anaerobic sludge and sulfate (used as the electron acceptor).

The authors are conducting their research at the Institute of Environmental Engineering, National Sun Yat-Sen University, in Taiwan.

The J. James R. Croes Medal is presented to the author or authors of a paper that is judged both worthy of the award and to be next in order of merit to the paper to which the Norman Medal is awarded.
