Serious problems of environmental damage, contamination, and degradation of soil and groundwater are internationally recognized. In many countries, the management of contaminated land has matured, and it is developing in many others. This book provides a comprehensive reference work with respect to current state-of-the-art in contaminated land management, and technologies for the remediation of contaminated soil and groundwater. Topics covered include chemical and ecological risk assessment of contaminated sites, selection and technology diffusion, remediation technologies, socio-environmental management and post-remediation long-term management of contaminated sites, and soil and groundwater laws and regulations. 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, 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.
