    This new book explains advanced and emerging technologies for removing heavy metals from wastestreams and contaminated sites. Separation processes of this type are critical for meeting stringent regulations of priority pollutants, especially arsenic, mercury, and lead, which the text treats in depth. After explaining the chemistry of heavy metals ...

  • 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: Using Wetlands for Their Removal

    Much of the convenience of modern life resides in sheet metal, the cowling shield of most machines and appliances. However, the load that this takes off human shoulders has to be carried elsewhere, and the Earth has borne the burden. Many of us woke up to the environmental cost when over a century of industrialization finally surpassed the ...

  • Engine Coolant Testing: Fourth Volume

    The most current information on engine coolant technologies and testing requirements. 25 papers from the world's leading scientists in the field are divided among the following major categories: • Organic acid inhibition technology research covering an impressive sampling of organic preparations; • State-of-the-art test methods on a wide ...

  • Biogeochemistry of Trace Elements in Arid Environments

    Global warming has worsened the water resource crisis in many arid zones worldwide, from Africa to Asia, affecting millions of people and putting them at risk of hunger. Effective management of arid zone resources, including understanding the risks of toxic trace and heavy elements to humans, coupled with the need to produce more food to feed the ...

  • In Vitro Methods in Aquatic Ecotoxicology

    This book, the first of its kind in this subject area, will focus on in vitro approaches to the study of the toxicology of polluting agents (including heavy metals, radionuclides, micro-organics, estrogenic compounds, and complex mixtures) in the aquatic environment. The importance of in vitro methods is that they allow standardised techniques to ...

  • Tree Transgenesis

    Tree improvement is necessary to meet the growing demand for the renewable resource wood. Many novel possibilities to obtain improved species are offered by biotechnology, and the time is ripe for a critical evaluation of the chances and challenges of tree transgenesis. Sixteen chapters by experts in the field provide concise information on the ...

  • Algae and Cyanobacteria in Extreme Environments

    Algae and Cyanobacteria in Extreme Environments is a unique collection of essays, contributed by leading scientists from around the world, devoted to algae – and some related microbes – observed in unexpected harsh habitats, which it seems are an oasis or Garden of Eden for these organisms. This timely book on Extremophilic algae, including its ...

  • Heavy Metal Stress in Plants

    Heavy metal phytotoxicity has been known for more than a century. Therefore, it is astonishing that interest in the effects of heavy metals on organisms has been aroused only recently. Research in the past years, however, has confirmed the immense damage by metal pollution to plants, the soil and ultimately to humans. This completely updated and ...

  • geoENV IV - Geostatistics for Environmental Applications

    This volume contains forty-one selected full-text contributions from the Fourth European Conference on Geostatistics for Environmental Applications, geoENV IV, held in Barcelona, Spain, November 2002. The objective of the editors was to compile a set of papers from which the reader could perceive how geostatistics is applied within the ...

  • Kinetics of Metal Adsorption from Aqueous Solutions

    The last two decades have seen significant developments in both the science of adsorption and the technology based on it. Adsorption of metal ions by hydrous oxides and adsorbents such as activated carbon has drawn the attention of a number of investigators interested in environmental problems. Since heavy metals are detrimental to a variety ...

  • 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 ...

  • Bioremediation

    Since its first systematic application during the 1970s, bioremediation, or the exploitation of a biological system’s degradative potential to combat toxic pollutants such as heavy metals, polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAH), cyanides, and radioactive material, has proven itself over time, and the many advances in molecular techniques have only ...
