National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) Develops Innovative Soil Purification Method.

Tokyo, Japan, Jan 13, 2006 - (JCN) - The National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology (AIST) has developed a soil purification method in collaboration with Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding.

The new method uses phosphoric acid and alcohol to efficiently extract organoarsenic compounds from contaminated soil. The two partners expect that the new method will contribute to the diminishing of environmental contamination caused by organoarsenic compounds.

Going forward, AIST aims to develop soil purification systems that can respond to various types of soil contaminations.
