Butterworth-Heinemann, Nov 23, 2019 - Technology & Engineering - 472 pages

Sustainable Remediation of Contaminated Soil and Groundwater: Materials, Processes, and Assessment provides the remediation tools and techniques necessary for simultaneously saving time and money and maximizing environmental, social and economic benefits. The book integrates green materials, cleaner processes, and sustainability assessment methods for planning, designing and implementing a more effective remediation process for both soil and groundwater projects. With this book in hand, engineers will find a valuable guide to greener remediation materials that render smaller environmental footprint, cleaner processes that minimize secondary environmental impact, and sustainability assessment methods that can be used to guide the development of materials and processes.

  • Addresses materials, processes, and assessment needs for implementing a successful sustainable remediation process
  • Provides an integrated approach for the unitization of various green technologies, such as green materials, cleaner processes and sustainability assessment
  • Includes case studies based on full-scale commercial soil and groundwater remediation projects
