This web paper investigates the influence of humic acids on the microbial degradation of PAHs in fuel and oil products at a contaminated site. Solubility and mobility of PAHs in contaminated aquifers are discussed, evaluation of the potential use of humic acids as a remedial technology to enhance the solubility and biodegradation of residual PAHs.
