    Particle Emissions From Rail Traffic: A Literature Review2013In: Critical reviews in environmental science and technology, ISSN 1064-3389, E-ISSN 1547-6537, Vol. 43, no 23, p. 2511-2544Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Particle emissions are a drawback of rail transport. This work is a comprehensive presentation of recent research into particle emissions from rail vehicles. Both exhaust and nonexhaust particle emissions are considered when examining particle characteristics such as PM10, and PM2.5 concentration levels, size, morphology, composition, and adverse health effects, current legislation, and available and proposed solutions for reducing such emissions. High concentration levels in enclosed rail traffic environments are reported and some toxic effects of the particles. The authors find that only a few limited studies have examined the adverse health effects of nonexhaust particle emissions and that no relevant legislation exists. Thus further research in this area is warranted.

    Phytoremediation of Trace element Contaminated Environments and the Potential of Endophytic Bacteria for Improving this Process2012In: Critical reviews in environmental science and technology, ISSN 1064-3389, E-ISSN 1547-6537, Vol. 42, no 21, p. 2215-2260Article, review/survey (Refereed)
    Abstract [en]

    Trace elements (heavy metals and metalloids) are among the most widespread contaminants that pose serious threat to all living organisms. Plant and microbial-assisted remediation holds great promise for in situ remediation of trace element contaminated environments. An extended knowledge of plant processes generally involved in the uptake, translocation, storage and detoxification of contaminants, and plant-microbe interactions were essential in developing improved technologies for environmental clean up. Currently, with the initiation of transgenic technologies, great strides have been made in trace element phytoremediation research. In this review, we provide an overview of the current knowledge of how plants cope with trace elements and discuss the development of transgenic plants with improved trace element remediation capabilities. In addition, this review also addresses the recent progress made towards understanding the plant-microbe interactions, especially of endophytic bacteria (natural and genetically engineered), and their contribution in improving the efficiency and versatility of trace element phytoremediation.
