Abstract : TNT residues in finished composts of TNT-contaminated soils cannot be extracted with aqueous or organic solvents. Based on this, composting is being used to remediate TNT-contaminated soils. The health hazards associated with dusts generated from such materials are not predictable since the stability of the TNT/compost bonds within biological systems is unknown. jg p.4
