AB  - Abstract
Purpose The Great War Island (GWI) is a landform of exceptional features and a protected area located in the center of
Belgrade at the Sava and Danube River’s confluence. The position of GWI causes a large number of possible hydrocar-
bons inputs that influence the quality of both river waters and sediments. The main objective of this research is to assess
the distribution and source of hydrocarbons in sediments deposited at the GWI depending on the river’s flow regimes and
depositional environment.
Material and methods Sediment samples were collected from 16 sites (11 sites along the GWI’s coast, 4 sites from the
inner of the Island, and 1 specific wetland site). The grain size was determined using a standard wet sieving procedure. The
extractable organic matter (OM) was quantified after Soxhlet extraction, and aliphatic and aromatic fractions were isolated
by column chromatography. n-Alkanes, diterpanes, terpanes, steranes, and 16 PAHs are analyzed by gas chromatography-
mass spectrometry.
Results and discussion Sand fraction predominates in coastal samples, and clay size fraction in the samples from the inner
island environment. The predominance of odd higher n-alkanes indicates the terrestrial origin of OM, while the distribution
of lower n-alkanes indicates a certain proportion of algae, bacteria, and/or high maturity of OM. The presence of oil-type
pollutants is confirmed by thermodynamically stable biomarker isomers and/or the presence of unresolved complex mixture
(UCM). Inner island samples are characterized by the largest amount of Corg (up 6%), indicating high bioproductivity and
good preservation of OM. Samples from wetland environment are distinguished by the domination of pimaranes and phyl-
locladanes among saturated hydrocarbons.
Conclusions This study revealed that sediments of the GWI mainly contain native OM with a certain anthropogenic input.
The native OM predominately comes from higher terrestrial plants (Salix alba, Populus nigra, Fraxinus viridis, Taxodium
distichum Rich.), followed by various types of grasses, macrophytes (Salvinia natans, Nymphaea alba), bacteria, algae, and
phytoplankton. Anthropogenic OM originates from petroleum, but also combustion products arrived by deposition from
the air and runoff.

AB  - The molecular and isotopic composition of biomarkers in initial bitumen isolated from immature (0.41% Rr) oil shale samples (Aleksinac deposit) and liquid products obtained by pyrolysis in open (OS) and closed (CS) systems are studied. The influence of pyrolysis type and variations of kerogen type on biomarkers composition and their isotopic signatures in liquid products is determined. The applicability of pyrolysis type, numerous biomarkers and carbon isotopic compositions (δ13C) of n-alkanes in liquid pyrolysates is established. Pyrolysis experiments were performed on two selected samples that showed high content of total organic carbon and hydrocarbon generation potential, but also certain variations in sources/depositional environment of organic matter (type I and mixed type I/II kerogen) within previous research of the oil shales sample set. The biomarker signatures were evaluated using gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and δ13C of individual n-alkanes in bitumen and liquid pyrolysates. The molecular composition of liquid pyrolysates from the OS is very similar to those in initial bitumen, independently on kerogen type, confirming algal origin of organic matter (OM) deposited in lacustrine environment, even more apparently than results of initial bitumen. Therefore, OS can be useful for assessment of source and depositional environment of OM. Pyrolysis in the CS caused more intense thermal alterations, therefore the source fingerprints sometimes notably disappear. The liquid pyrolysates from the CS have the distributions of biomarkers similar to those in crude oils. The biomarker maturity parameters showed slightly higher values in the CS pyrolysate of mixed type I/II kerogen in relation to type I kerogen. δ13C of n-alkanes in liquid pyrolysates from the OS are isotopically lighter in comparison to bitumen, independently on kerogen type. Oppositely, in liquid pyrolysates from the CS, they become heavier than in bitumen, indicating the thermal influence on δ13C signatures, with more pronounced difference for type I kerogen.

AB  - Biological markers (BMs) are organic compounds in oils in which a precursor is known, and during the transformation of organic matter these compounds undergo certain structural and stereochemical changes. Based on the established precursors of BMs, the origin of the examined oils can be estimated, and based on the intensity and the type of changes and also geological history. It includes defining the deposition medium, the degree of maturation, the length of the oil migration path, the degree of biodegradation. The most studied and applied BMs are normal alkanes, isoprenoid aliphatic alkanes pristane and phytane, and polycyclic alkanes of the sterane and terapane type. On the other hand, in the environmental chemistry, these compounds can significantly contribute to the identification of petroleum pollutants, as well as to the assessment of the migration mechanism and the intensity of biodegradation. This review paper first presents the results related to the application of BMs in the organic geochemical correlations of oil in the south-eastern part of the Pannonian Basin (I). The second part provides an overview of those researches in which the same BMs were used in the identification of oil pollutants and in monitoring their changes during the migration and the biodegradation in rivers and river sediments of Serbia (II).

AB  - Heavy metals are naturally occurring elements, but they are regarded as significant environmental pollutants due to their high density and high toxicity even at low concentrations. The aim of this paper is the evaluation of the pollution level of heavy metals in the river and riverbank sediments, as well as the estimation of their origin and spatial differences along the course of the Vrbas River through Banja Luka. The concentrations of metals have been assessed using the Inductively coupled plasma – optical emission spectrometry and Advanced mercury analyzer for mercury determination. The anthropogenic impact on heavy metal concentration in sediments was estimated by the calculating of pollution indices: geoaccumulation index (Igeo), contamination factor (Cf), pollution load index (PLI) and potential ecological risk index (Er). Obtained results indicate that there is no statistically significant spatial difference in metal concentration, indicating that heavy metals in sediments have a constant source. The anthropogenic impact expressed by the values of pollution indices showed that sites are generally uncontaminated by Co, Cr and V and moderately contaminated by Zn, Cu and Ni. On the contrary, lead, mercury and cadmium pose the highest ecological risk. The anthropogenic source of Pb, Hg and Cd is industry, municipal waste and the combustion of fossil fuels. The obtained results demonstrate the high ecological risk and the need for environ-mental monitoring, with the aim to support an efficient strategy to reduce local pollution and contamination of the investigated system.

AB  - The study investigated the influence of maturity, biomass type, and depositional settings on the distribution and relative abundance of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs) for lacustrine sediments collected from depths up to 1000 m of Prebreza and Čučale stratigraphic units (the northwest part of the Toplica Basin). A recently proposed benzo[ghi]perylene/(perylene + benzo[ghi]perylene) parameter, along with commonly used Phenanthrene Alkylation Index and benzo[e]pyrene/(perylene + benzo[e]pyrene) indices, pointed out differences in maturity levels between stratigraphic units by displaying a positive linear relationship with vitrinite reflectance. However, in several immature Prebreza sediments, a substantial presence of algae and/or anoxic, mesosaline/hypersaline conditions were suitable for forming β-substituted methylphenanthrenes and 6-ring benzo[ghi]perylene. Generally, high molecular weight unsubstituted PAHs (HMWPAHs), particularly perylene, predominated Prebreza sediments. Anoxic conditions appeared to be decisive for accumulating and preserving the perylene carbon skeleton in studied stratigraphic units. Besides, more intense volcanism in the Čučale unit favored combustion processes, which prompted the accumulation of low molecular weight unsubstituted PAHs (LMWPAHs), especially phenanthrene. A general prevalence of retene over cadalene in Prebreza sediments, in which alginite and liptodetrinite predominated, implied algae as retene precursor. Selective degradation of retene or hindered demethylation of 9-methylphenanthrene under anoxic and more saline environmental settings had occurred notably in the Prebreza unit, which led to the formation of 1-methylphenanthrene and/or pimanthrene (1,7-dimethylphenanthrene). Čučale sediments with substantial amounts of vitrinite macerals or saturated diterpenoids had a predominant simonellite derived from conifers. Non-degraded and well-preserved Pinaceae conifers predominated in Prebreza sediments deposited under semi-arid climatic conditions, whereas mixed degraded/non-degraded conifers characterized Čučale sediments deposited in a wide range of climatic conditions, from semi-arid to semi-humid. © 2021, The Author(s), under exclusive licence to Springer Nature B.V.

AB  - The study investigates the influence of alluvial-lacustrine processes and paleoclimate variations on the distribution of terpenoids and unsubstituted Polycyclic Aromatic Hydrocarbons (PAHs). The XRF, ICP-MS, Rock-Eval, and organic geochemical analyses were employed to investigate thirty Lower and Middle Miocene sedimentary samples from the Prebreza and Čučale formations, collected from boreholes BL3 and BL5, situated in the central part of the Toplica Basin (Serbia). The development of the studied basin part was influenced by alluvial-lacustrine processes, which affected the type of organic matter (OM) and the paleoenvironment. Sandy silt and gravel layers in the profile of the BL3 borehole indicate the contribution of thicker clasts brought by rivers. In the BL5 borehole, there are fine-grained intrabasinal lacustrine sediments in the lower part, and swamp sediments in the upper part. The lowest total organic carbon (TOC) content is in alluvial sediments of BL3 and some lacustrine sediments of BL5. Based on Hydrogen Index (HI) and C/N ratio, various mixtures of terrigenous and algal organic matter are present in the sediments, while an increase in the proportion of terrestrial organic matter with higher HI (Type II kerogen) is recorded in upper parts of both boreholes, which may be related to paleoclimatic changes. Based on Tmax, the OM is immature and/or in the initial stage of maturity. The presence of plant terpenoids and unsubstituted PAHs, which reflected paleoflora and paleoclimate changes, was associated with the suggestion of predominating Type III kerogen in the studied sediments. Various factors influenced the application of gymnosperms/angiosperms parameters. For instance, the progressive aromatization of triterpenoids occurred in the BL5, whereas the process was hindered in the upper part of the BL3, probably as a result of high sedimentation rates. Based on C-value, Sr/Cu, and Rb/Sr ratios, during the deposition of the Lower and Middle Miocene formations of Čučale and Prebreza, a warm and humid climate prevailed, reflecting the Middle Miocene Climatic Optimum (MMCO). The production of unsubstituted PAHs in the studied samples probably relates to paleo-wildfires, anoxic conditions, or the presence of specific biomass precursors. © 2021 Sciendo.

AB  - The Techirghiol Lake, located on the Romanian coast of the Black Sea, is a hypersaline lake. In this environment, a unique ecosystem in Europe has developed with the specific capacity of producing mud by the decomposition of flora and fauna under the microbial activity (saprogenic sludge), which is used for therapeutic purposes.In this study, hydrocarbon compositions of the Techirghiol Lake mud are investigated in order to determine the origin and type of organic matter (OM). All samples are characterized by a high abundance of n-alkanes, short and high chain alkenes, pimarane, phyllocladane, indicating that OM was mainly derived from phytoplankton, filamentous green alga Cladophora vagabunda, Cyanobacteria, submerged/floating macrophytes, terrestrial and emergent plants. The terrestrial origin of organic matter is probably related to a significant input by wind or rivers. Typical oil distributions of terpanes and steranes biomarkers clearly indicate that the muds of Techirghiol Lake, in addition to native organic matter, contain a relatively low contribution of petroleum type pollutants, as well as PAH compounds of pyrogenic origin. The relatively high abundance of 1-chloroalkenes, which in some samples represent the most abundant compounds in the total distribution of hydrocarbons, together with isoprenoid thiophenes indicate the local presence of significant amounts of chloride and sulphur species in the water column or surface sediment.

AB  - The oil pollutant in the Sava River aquifer in the residential area of Belgrade, Serbia was investigated in order to analyze the extent, origin and spatial distribution of the pollution, with the aim to estimate potential human health risks from exposure to the compounds detected. Analytical methods indicated that the dominant compounds in this oil pollutant were gasoline range organic compounds. Benzene, toluene, ethylbenzene and xylenes (BTEX) were identified as compounds of concern and quantified by headspace gas chromatography. The concentrations of benzene measured at all sampling points were higher than the remediation value while the maximum concentrations of BTEX quantified were among the highest concentrations of these compounds reported in the petroleum-contaminated aquifers in the world. The assessment of the human health risks from exposure to BTEX-covered industrial scenario for adult receptors and residential scenario for adult receptors and children. The exposure routes analyzed were dermal contact with and ingestion of contaminated water, considering both cancer and non-cancer effects. The analysis of the lifetime incremental cancer risk indicated the potential for adverse health effects for human exposure at the investigated location, and because of that it was interpreted as an unacceptable risk level or risks of high priority which required immediate consideration for remedial measures at this location. A complete set of mitigation measures was proposed including: groundwater decontamination treatment, installation of filters for tap water, development of the system for monitoring of BTEX in the groundwater and development of the emergency response capacities at this location.

AB  - Badlands are areas with limited vegetation, reduced or no human activity, and a great variety of geomorphic processes [1]. Badland materials have a different responsetothe same environmental conditions, because of differences in their mineralogical and physico-chemical characteristics. Many studies show that smectite-poorsediments are more resistant to different weathering treatments of freezing, thawing, wetting, and drying,than smectite-rich materials [2,3].In this paper, three unweathered samples of badlands from Spain were analyzed with the aim of monitoring, but also comparing physico-chemical changes caused by simulations of changes in climatic conditions. Selectedsediment samples havedifferent compositions. Besides quartz and calcite, the first sampleis composed of smectite and gypsum (3 UW), the second of smectite (4 UW), while the third sample is composed of neither smectite nor gypsum (5 UW). The experiment setup was designed in the way that each sample had three sub-samples, a sample for simulation of rain, snow, and a control sample (Figure 1). Sample_rain was treated with a rain intensity of ~850 ml/h for 10 minutes (~140 ml), while sample_snow was treated with crushed ice (~150 g). After precipitation simulations snow were put samples were placed in a climate chamber at - 3 °C together with a control sample. This was repeated for 15 cycles. Every cycle was documented with photographs. The leached solution was collected and its volume, pH, electrical conductivity (EC), and ion concentrations were measured. The second part of the experiment was based on exposing the samples after wetting to higher temperatures, 50 ° C. It was done in 8 cycles. FESEM and BET analyzes were performed for each sample before and after the experiments.The 3 UW samples had significantly different leachate pH and EC, while the leachate volume was similar for all samples during the experiment. Sulphate ions were leached in the highest concentrations during the whole experiment from the sample with both smectite and gypsum present. The sample with smectite has shown the highest disintegration of the structure, especially after the simulation of snow. The sample with smectite and gypsum has shown a lower degree of degradation than sample 3 UW due to the content of gypsum which increases the weathering resistance of the material. Sample 5 UW has shown the lowest degradation of the structure along with the weathering cycles. This study has proven that both mineralogical and physico-chemical properties of sediments are important for predicting their response to variable climate factors.

AB  - The Vrbas River is an important river ecosystem in Bosnia and Herzegovina with a length of 250 km and catchment areas of 5900 km2 . Before reaching Banja Luka, the Vrbas River passes through a canyon and numerous gorges, which are from 1955 protected by the Law on the Protection of Natural Values. This river flows through many towns and villages along the entire course, but the main anthropogenic influence comes from Banja Luka, one of the largest cities in Bosnia and Herzegovina.The aim of this research was to characterise extractable organic matter of sediments from the Vrbas River in the city area of Banja Luka. Six samples were collected at locations which were selected based on the vicinity of potential sources of anthropogenic pollution: 1 and 3 – sites near bridge and frequent traffic, 2 – city’s promenade, 6 – site in the vicinity of the thermal power plant, 7 – site close to Banja Luka Brewery and the bridge on frequent road, and 8 – site close to the food industry “Vitaminka”. Extractable organic matter was isolated with dichloromethane/ methanol mixture using a Soxhlet apparatus. Hydrocarbons were isolated from the extracts using a column chromatography and analyzed by gas chromatography – mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Detailed analysis of n-alkanes (m/z 71), diterpanes (m/z 123), hopanes (m/z 191) and steranes (m/z 217) was done. The individual peaks were identified by comparison with literature data [1] and based on their mass spectra (library: NIST11). Among saturated hydrocarbons diterpane, 16α(H)phyllocladane is the most dominant component in almost all samples (Fig.1). The exception is a sample 7. This diterpane is followed by n-alkanes with a predominance of higher odd homologues.  It indicates predominately native organic matter of Vrbas river sediments, originated mostly from terrestrial plants. That was noticed the predominant presence of native organic material in noticed in samples 2, 3, 6, while the presence of oil type pollutants was confirmed in other samples (1, 7, 8), which are near the bridge and frequent traffic roads. Fig 1. Total ion current (TIC) of saturated fraction. The previous study regarding the contents distribution of heavy metals in these sediments showed that most contaminated samples are at sampling points 2 and 6 [2]. That is not the case with oil contamination pointing to probably different sources of anthropogenic pollution.

AB  - Badlands are areas with scarce or completely absent vegetation formed in a wide range of lithologies in different climate conditions and exposed to a wide range of geomorphological processes [1]. Generally, rapid evolution governed by erosion processes is a consequence of complex mineralogical and physico-chemical sediment composition and climate conditions. Because of that, badlands are often described as natural field laboratories and, furthermore, badland material is suitable for laboratory experiments that can, in controlled conditions, provide insight of changes that occur in the field. As indicated above, beside lithology, climate is one of the most significant factors in badlands forming. Since human activities have great impact on the environment and since climate changes present one of the biggest environmental pollution problems nowadays, in this research badland material was exposed to different conditions with the aim of monitoring changes caused by extreme climate conditions and acid ice. Three samples from badlands in China organized in six sets were treated with ice (representing snow) and acid ice (frozen acid rain) during fifteen cycles, dried in the oven for three cycles and afterwards again threated with ice and acid ice for additional five cycles. After each cycle samples were photographed, so that physical changes can be tracked, while leachate was collected and analyzed for monitoring changes in its volume, pH, electrical conductivity (EC) and cation concentration. Beside slight oscillations in parameters through cycles of samples treated with acid ice, extreme changes in observed parameters were not noticed neither between samples, nor between treatments. Leachate EC were a bit higher in samples treated with ice, leachate volume was higher for samples treated with acid ice, while pH was similar in both cases. Cation concentrations are similar in the leachate of all tested samples. In most of cases, the highest concentrations were measured at the beginning of the experiment, during the first two cycles or during the first “ice” cycles after drying. This indicates the high cation concentrations originate from the sediment surface or washing along the crack that appeared after drying. Physical changes that occurred through cycles implied that heat/drought is more aggressive agent of sediment decay. Decay caused by ice is slower, not as aggressive as drought, but not negligible, causing noticeable and significant cracks and fissures of fragments.  This experiment confirmed that drought has high impact on sediment weathering, but more importantly, pointed out the impact of ice and its thawing, opening new questions about climate impact on forming, erosion processes and evolution of badlands which need to be further examined.

AB  - The molecular and isotopic composition of biomarkers in initial bitumen isolated from raw immature oil shale samples from the Lower Miocene Aleksinac Basin (Serbia) and liquid products (LPs) obtained by pyrolysis in open (OS) and closed systems (CS) are studied. The influence of pyrolysis type and variations of kerogen type on biomarkers composition and their isotopic signatures in LPs is determined.

The molecular composition of the LPs from the OS pyrolysis is very similar to those in initial bitumen, independently on kerogen type. The LPs from the CS pyrolysis have the distributions of biomarkers similar to those in crude oils generated in an early to main stage of “oil window“. The biomarker data suggests that mixed type I/II kerogen attained slightly higher maturity level by the CS pyrolysis than type I kerogen. The isotopic signatures of n-alkanes in LPs obtained by the OS pyrolysis are isotopically lighter than in initial bitumen, independently on kerogen type, whereas in liquid products from the CS they become heavier; showing more pronounced difference for type I kerogen. The results indicate that δ13C data should be used with caution in interpretation of samples having different maturity and particularly of LPs obtained by different system pyrolysis.

AB  - The objective of this study is geochronological investigation of sedimentological and inorganic composition, in the Danube Djerdap Lake sediments in order to obtain reliable information about former pollution. Eleven samples were taken from the 135-cm-deep sediment core drilled at the Orlova location. Since the core represents sediments deposited during 1972–2016, the sedimentation rate of ~ 3 cm year−1 was estimated. Grain size, mineralogical and geochemical composition was determined. Sediments are sandy silts and clayey silts, and only the deepest and shallowest layers contain > 30% of sand-size fraction. The highest concentrations of minor elements are found in the oldest sediment (1972–1977) as a consequence of the high flux of the material from variable sources. During the sedimentation period (1975–1990), the concentrations of analyzed elements are generally decreasing until the beginning of 1990s. After this period, there are two distinct decreases and two distinct increases in concentrations of elements. The fluctuations in minor element concentrations are a consequence of both natural and anthropogenic sources. Granitic rocks situated south are source of minerals that carry minor elements. Enrichment Factor, Geoaccumulation Index, Contamination Factor and Pollution Load Index indicate that concentrations of certain minor elements at specific depositional periods have anthropogenic source.

AB  - The investigation of the relationship between paleoenvironmental conditions and distribution and relative abundance of specific saturated and aromatic hydrocarbons was the main objective of this study, thus marking the parameters, which were most sensitive to environmental changes. Insights on the type, generative potential, and maturity of organic matter (OM), as well as paleoclimate conditions, along with the reconstruction of depositional settings of the northwest part of the Toplica basin (Serbia), were provided. Organic petrographic, palynofacies, organic geochemical, mineralogical, and XRF analyses were carried out to investigate 40 sediment samples of the Prebreza and Čučale sedimentary units. Investigated samples were deposited in the saline and anoxic environment, under semi-arid to semi-humid/humid climate conditions, along with the constant inflow of volcanoclastic material. The predominance of δ-methyltrimethyltridecil chroman (δ-MTTC) within euxinic portions of the stratified water column was associated with an increase in salinity, which was noticed for sediments of the Prebreza unit. Sediments from this stratigraphic unit showed a higher contribution of algae precursor, whereas sediments of the Čučale unit suggested higher participation of microbiologically reworked OM. Most of the samples contained oil-prone kerogen type II. Maturity of the OM for sediments of the Prebreza unit ranged from immature to early-mature, while for samples of the Čučale unit varied from early-mature to mature stages. Distribution of hopane biomarkers typical for crude oil indicated that depth of 1 km was a boundary for the genesis of thermodynamic, more stable compounds. A significant portion of semifusinite was correlated with the paleofire event, which affected the distribution of n-alkanes. The high production of hydrocarbons was related to volcanic activity. Parameters, which proved to be highly susceptible at the stratigraphic boundary between the Prebreza and Čučale units, were C-value, S/H, α-MTTC, δ-MTTC, β-/γ-MTTC, and (1,3- + 1,6-)/(1,4 + 1,5-DMC), respectively.

AB  - A combined inorganic and organic geochemical study was carried out on marls and mudstones collected from the Lower Miocene Lopare Basin, Bosnia and Herzegovina. A total of 46 samples collected from two boreholes, Pot 1 (depth of 193 m) and Pot 3 (depth of 344 m), showed that element abundances like boron (B), lithium (Li), strontium (Sr), uranium (U), chromium (Cr), nickel (Ni), magnesium (Mg), sodium (Na) and calcium (Ca) are much higher than average than in the upper continental crust (UCC). Chemical composition indicates at least two sources: (i) Mesozoic ophiolites occurring in the north of the investigated area, and (ii) dacito-andesitic pyroclastics (Mesozoic to Cenozoic). Lopare Basin sedimentation was influenced by strong evaporation resulting in a partly hypersaline lake, which formed during a warm climatic period, probably during the Miocene Climatic Optimum. A brief episode of humid climate conditions resulted in the basin filling-up and deposition of felsic sediments enriched in thorium (Th). Organic geochemistry shows that the majority of studied sediments contains predominantly immature to marginally mature algal organic matter (OM). The biomarker patterns are generally in agreement with the geological history of the Lopare Basin and inorganic and mineralogical data. Conversely, the molecular distribution of n-alkanes as reliable climatic and δ-MTTC as paleosalinity indicators do not support this conclusion.

AB  - Due to their extensive use, petroleum hydrocarbons are among the most common groundwater contaminants. Compared to the traditional methods of physical pumping of contamination from the aquifer and subsequent treatment (i.e., pump and treat), bioremediation is an economically cost-effective technology. The aim of this remediation approach is to transform biologically contaminants, most often by microbiological activity, into non-toxic compounds. More precisely, it is an active remediation process that involves biostimulation (increase of aquifer oxygenation, addition of nutrients) and/or bioaugmentation (injection of a concentrated and specialized population of microorganisms). Using both biostimulation and bioaugmentation, enhanced in situ groundwater bioremediation was applied at a hydrocarbon-contaminated site in Belgrade. The bioremediation treatment, applied over twelve months, was highly efficient in reducing the concentrations of total petroleum hydrocarbon (TPH) to acceptable levels. The concentration of TPH in the piezometer P-5 was reduced by 98.55 %, in the piezometer P-6 by 98.30 % and in the piezometer P-7 by 98.09 %. These results provided strong evidence on the potential of this remediation approach to overcome site-limiting factors and enhance microbiological activity in order to reduce groundwater contamination.

AB  - Anode slime and tin precipitate as by-products of the electrorefining (ER) of non-standard anodes obtained after experimental smelting of waste electric and electronic equipment (e-waste), in addition to the base and precious metals, contains a significant amount of tin. Due to its presence as inert SnO2 hydrate (β metastannic acid) and its dissipation between slime and electrolyte, anode slime processing and metals valorization are difficult. This study aimed to investigate conditions under which efficient leaching of metastannic acid could be achieved to facilitate further metals valorization, especially precious metals. The investigation was performed using the by-products obtained from the ER of the non-standard Cu anodes produced by pyrometallurgical processing of e-waste. After detailed characterization of obtained products, the influence of various process parameters like temperature, acid concentration, leaching time, as well as the influence of reducing agent, sulfur compounds, and SnO2 hydration rate on leaching efficiency was investigated. It was found that efficiency of 99% can be achieved by leaching the desulfurized tin precipitate sample in 6 M HCl at 90 °C for 90 min with the addition of Mg powder. The application of the tin removal process, described in this paper, contributes to efficient material flow management.

AB  - Seven crude oils from four oil fields in the Sirte and Murzuq Basins in Libya were investigated in order to estimate their organic geochemical homogeneity. Saturated biomarkers (n-alkanes and isoprenoids) were analyzed using gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GC–MS). The parameters calculated from the distributions of n-alkanes and isoprenoid aliphatic alkanes, pristane and phytane were used to interpret the organic geochemical characteristics of the oils. Based on the high relative concentration of lower n-alkane homologues in the C11–C16 range and high API values, the oils were classified as light oils. These results also implied that the oils were not biodegraded. The parameters calculated from the distributions of saturated biomarkers indicated that all investigated oils were generated from source rocks containing organic matter of a similar marine origin but with a contribution of terrestrial organic matter. The results also demonstrated that these source rocks were deposited in an oxic environment. The same source rock or the same type of source rocks for all seven samples were postulated. It was concluded that, if the crude oils from these distant basins originated from the same source rocks, they must have had different lengths of their migration pathways.
