Soil Remediation : Applications and New Technologies, Hardback Book

Soil Remediation : Applications and New Technologies Hardback

Edited by Jose T. V. S. De Albergaria, Hendrikus P. A. Nouws


Soil contamination represents a serious environmental problem and requires an immediate action plan to be prepared for typical and emergent contaminants.

This book provides an overview of some remediation technologies, both traditional and emergent, as well as case studies based on the contribution from academia and service providers.

Several soil and groundwater remediation technologies such as electrokinetic remediation, biological treatments (including phytoremediation), and chemical remediation are presented.

Innovative technologies such as nanoremediation and the application of life cycle assessment as a decision tool for soil remediation technologies are also considered in this book.

This book serves as a reference source for soil remediation as it includes applications, technologies, and valuable tools that can help in decision making during remediation actions.

It can be used by students, researchers, service providers, and industry practitioners.
