In many cases, the application of in situ technologies evolved as a necessity from a cost perspective. However, the basic understanding of the mechanisms and theory behind these technologies was treated as a “black box.” Although we have seen some tremendous successes in the application of remediation technologies over the past several years, we have also seen many cases in which a technology has been incorrectly or inappropriately applied. In most cases, this misapplication has been the result of a poor understanding of the basic concepts and mechanisms behind the technologies. Without proper understanding, the potential for misapplication of technologies remains a serious economic and technical threat.

"Dr. Suthersan continues to provide 'cutting edge' approaches in dealing with environmental matters. In this latest work, Remediation Engineering: Design Concepts, Dr. Suthersan provides broad and practical insight to the various technologies used to address environmental conditions. I highly recommend this publication." -Walter Hufford, Senior Environmental Engineer, ARCO Products Company "Suthan Suthersan is one of the most knowledgeable, energetic and creative people in the remediation field today. This book reflects his technical strengths as well as his practical approach and focus on cost-effective project closure. It is direct, comprehensive and full of valuable information, from the fundamentals to advanced principles, and from basics to the latest in remediation technologies and approaches. His discussions of the mechanisms and limitation of each technology are particularly useful." -B. Lee Kindberg, Director, Environmental Remediation Processes, Hoechst Celanese Corporation "This book is truly a 'first of its kind.' Each method is described in detail, and the reader is guided through its evaluation, design, and implementation. The material, amply illustrated, qualifies both as a textbook for the engineer or scientist and a guide for the technician already in the field applying the remedy. "Only someone with the author's professional background and commitment to seeking creative solutions to tough problems could have put together this book. For the past 15 years, Suthan Suthersan has been a pioneer in the development and application of new methods for the solution of soil and groundwater contamination problems. "I enjoyed this book.... It is a valuable contribution to the fieldboth here and abroad." -Walter Hufford, Senior Environmental Engineer, ARCO Products Company Short TOC
