Groundwater Arsenic Remediation: Treatment Technology and Scale UP provides the ...

  • Arsenic in Ground Water

    Potable water supplies that contain arsenic concentrations high enough to pose a human health hazard are a problem of international proportion. Surface water and ground water are both at risk of arsenic contamination. However, most incidences of high concentrations of arsenic have been reported for ground water, which is the subject of this book. ...

    Arsenic in Groundwater: Poisoning and Risk Assessment

    The main focus of Arsenic in Groundwater: Poisoning and Risk Assessment is to explore the untold stories of groundwater arsenic in view of its poisonous nature for human health, social implications, exposure and risk assessment, worldwide concentrations with space-time dimension, micro level GIS application in spatial arsenic concentration, policy ...

  • Natural Arsenic in Groundwaters of Latin America

    Groundwater resources naturally contain rather high levels of arsenic in many parts of the world. During the last two decades, the As-containing groundwater in South-East Asia has received much attention. However, the situation seems to be equally important in Latin America, where the number of studies is still relatively low, and the extent and ...

    In-Situ Remediation of Arsenic-Contaminated Sites

    This textbook provides an introduction, the scientific background, case studies and future perspectives of in-situ arsenic remediation technologies for soils, soil water and groundwater at geogenic and anthropogenic contaminated sites. The case studies present in-situ technologies about natural arsenic, specifically arsenate and arsenite, but also ...

  • Arsenic and Old Mustard: Chemical Problems in the Destruction of Old Arsenical and `Mustard´ Munitions

    More than ten million 'poison gas' shells, mortar bombs, etc., lie hidden in Europe, many of them relics from World War I. Some were fired and failed to detonate, others were abandoned in old ammunition dumps. Most retain their load of chemical warfare (CW) agents. They are turned up daily in the course of farming and construction. Many ...
