Abstract

This book offers various soil and water treatment technologies due to increasing global soil and water pollution. In many countries, the management of contaminated land has matured, and it is developing in many others. Topics covered include chemical and ecological risk assessment of contaminated sites; phytomanagement of contaminants; arsenic removal; selection and technology diffusion; technologies and socio-environmental management; post-remediation long-term management; soil and groundwater laws and regulations; and trace element regulation limits in soil. Future prospects of soil and groundwater remediation are critically discussed in this book. Hence, readers will learn to understand the future prospects of soil and groundwater contaminants and remediation measures.

Key Features:

Discusses conventional and novel aspects of soil and groundwater remediation technologies
Includes new monitoring/sensing technologies for soil and groundwater pollution
Features a case study of remediation of contaminated sites in the old, industrial, Ruhr area in Germany
Highlights soil washing, soil flushing, and stabilization/solidification
Presents information on emerging contaminants that exhibit new challenges
This book is designed for undergraduate and graduate courses and can be used as a handbook for researchers, policy makers, and local governmental institutes. Soil and Groundwater Remediation Technologies: A Practical Guide is written by a team of leading global experts in the field.
