heavy metals contaminated soil remediation Books

  • Soil Heavy Metals

    Human activities have dramatically changed the composition and organisation of soils. Industrial and urban wastes, agricultural application and also mining activities resulted in an increased concentration of heavy metals in soils. How plants and soil microorganisms cope with this situation and the sophisticated techniques developed for survival ...

  • Heavy Metals Release in Soils

    Understanding the mechanisms associated with metal complexes and the sequestering metal contaminants in the environment is essential for effective remediation. Heavy Metal Release in Soils describes and quantifies desorption/release kinetics and dissolution reactions in the release of heavy metals from soil. ...

  • Heavy Metals in the Environment

    This text presents contemporary analytical techniques for the determination of heavy metals in air particles, water, soil and biological samples. It details experimental studies to reduce the occurance of disease, remediate contaminated sites and establish acceptable range of oral intakes (AROI) guidelines. ...

  • Geochemical and Hydrological Reactivity of Heavy Metals in Soils

    Our technology-based society demands the use of enormous quantities of heavy metals. Yet society also demands the prevention, and the remediation, of soil contaminated with heavy metals. A unified presentation of recent developments that will help achieve these goals, Geochemical and Hydrological Reactivity of Heavy Metals in Soils discusses new ...

  • Analysis of Phytoremediation Potential of Crop Plants in Industrial Heavy Metal Contaminated Soil in the Upper Mures River Basin

    Phytoremediation represents an efficient ecological solution for treating the polluted soils through the use of plants. This is a passive process, with low costs, appropriate for the limitation of the risk of hazardous wastes in the case of in-depth contaminated soil. This paper presents a research with a novel result on soil remediation through ...

  • Biotechnology for the Environment: Soil Remediation

    At the dawn of the 21st century, biotechnology is emerging as a key enabling technology for sustainable environmental protection and stewardship. Biotechnology for the Environment: Soil Remediation offers a state-of-the-art account of environmental biotechnology both in emerging and in more mature technological applications of soil remediation and ...
