  • Biological Contaminants in Indoor Environments

    The purpose of this symposium on biological contaminants in indoor environments was to develop and explore sampling and analytical protocols for microbial agents that may be commonly or uncommonly found indoors. Classes of microbial agents considered in this symposium were: • Viruses • Bacteria including, gram negative, gram positive, ...

  • Building Vulnerability Assessments: Industrial Hygiene and Engineering Concepts

    All too often the assessment of structural vulnerability is thought of only in terms of security upgrades, guards, and entrance barriers. However, in order to fully ensure that a building is secure, the process of design and construction must also be considered. Building Vulnerability Assessments: Industrial Hygiene and Engineering Concepts ...

  • Sediment/Water Interactions V

    The papers appearing in this volume reflect the current attention in sediment/water science to five main topics of investigation: Sediment dynamics in estuaries, coastal waters, lakes, reservoirs and rivers; Sediment-associated biological processes; Contaminant accumulation, distribution and geochemistry; Fluxes from sediments; and Element ...

  • Environmental Forensics - Proceedings of the 211 INEF Conference

    This publication includes peer-reviewed manuscripts from the 2011 International Network of Environmental Forensics (INEF) Conference held at St. John's College in Cambridge, UK. INEF is an organization founded by environmental forensic scientists for the express purpose of sharing and disseminating environmental forensic information to the ...

  • Indoor Environmental Quality

    When we think of indoor pollution, we usually think of conditions originating from faulty ventilation systems, second hand smoke, and other air borne pollutants. Taking an in-depth, hard science look at the problems of indoor environmental pollution, Indoor Environmental Quality covers all the major indoor contaminants - inorganic, organic, and ...

  • Equidosimetry

    Considerable experience with radioecological and related ecological research on terrestrial and aquatic ecosystems has been achieved, especially after the Chernobyl accident. The combined effects of the radiation, chemical and biological factors, after a contamination of the environment and during its remediation have shown an interactive ...

  • RegenOx Design Manual

    RegenOx™ is an advanced chemical oxidation technology that destroys contaminants through powerful, yet controlled chemical reactions and not through biological means. RegenOx™ directly oxidizes contaminants while its unique catalytic component generates a range of highly oxidizing free radicals that rapidly and effectively destroy a range of ...

  • Bioremediation of Pollutants in Soil and Water

    A detailed overview of innovative ways to combat the pollution of the environment. 17 peer-reviewed papers have been divided into five primary categories: Bioremediation Feasibility and Applicability--Four papers address a number of issues including how bioremediation technology compares favorably with other technologies from a cost standpoint, ...

  • ISOCYANATES: Sampling, Analysis, and Health Effects

    STP 1408 examines the latest data and technology on isocyanates, and features topics ranging from sampling and analysis methods to health effects. Isocyanates are widely used in many industrial processes because of their high activity and affinity to many substances, which lead to polymerization, as well as the properties for the resulting ...

  • Assessment and Remediation of Contaminated Sediments

    Contaminated sediments pose some of the most difficult site remediation issues. Contaminated sediments typically reside in spatially variable and dynamic systems subject to seasonal flow variations and episodic storm events. The volume of sediments that must be managed at particular sites often exceeds one million cubic meters, dwarfing many ...

  • In Situ Remediation Engineering

    In Situ Remediation Engineering provides a comprehensive guide to the design and implementation of reactive zone methods for treatment of all major classes of groundwater contamination, including hydrophobic and miscible organics, metals, and other high-solubility inorganics. It teaches the fundamentals that underlie development of cost-effective ...

  • Resource Recovery, Confinement, and Remediation of Environmental Hazards

    The papers in this volume arose out of two workshops entitled 'Confinement and Remediation of Environmental Hazards,' and 'Resource Recovery,' as part of the IMA 1999-2000 program year. These workshops brought together mathematicians, engineers and scientists to summarize recent theoretical, computational, and experimental advances in the theory ...

  • Biodegradation and Bioremediation

    The diverse metabolic capabilities of microorganisms and their interactions with hazardous organic and inorganic compounds have long been recognized. Microbial processes are environmentally compatible and can be integrated with non-biological processes to detoxify, degrade and immobilize environmental contaminants. Bioremediation, the application ...

  • Methods and Techniques for Cleaning-up Contaminated Sites

    Soil and groundwater pollution caused by contaminants including petroleum hydrocarbons, represents a serious threat to the environment in NATO and NATO Partner countries. Solutions are needed that represent practical alternatives to costly remedial strategies yet still yield benefits to site managers. This publication comprises the presentations ...

  • Security of Public Water Supplies

    The provision of secure drinking water supplies for its citizens is the aim of every government. The quantity of water is in most cases adequate, but the quality in many cases is not. The development of new analytical methods has led to the discovery of new substances of human origin in drinking water. New microorganisms and their toxins pass ...
