  • Environmental remediation of heavy metal ions from aqueous solution through hydrogel adsorption: a critical review

    Heavy metal ions such as Cd2+, Pb2+, Cu2+, Mg2+, and Hg2+ from industrial waste water constitute a major cause of pollution for ground water sources. These ions are toxic to man and aquatic life as well, and should be removed from wastewater before disposal. Various treatment technologies have been reported to remediate the potential toxic elements from ...

  • Soil degradation, a deepening problem

    Land is increasingly encountering problems which cause soil degradation. Erosion, desiccation and salinisation are just a few examples. The result is that fertile top layers of the soil disappear, water infiltration deteriorates and surface discharge accelerates. This constant decline in soil fertility, productivity and cultural and recreational value has many negative effects, particularly for ...

  • Assessing the impact of climate change on water resources, crop production and land degradation in a semi-arid river basin

    The semi-arid regions of Iran have experienced severe water resources stress due to natural (e.g., drought) and anthropogenic (e.g., depletion of water in various sectors) factors. Assessing the impact of climate change on water resources and crop production could significantly help toward better water management and hence prevention of land degradation in this area. A hydrological model of ...

  • Drawing the Line between Water Damage Restoration and Mold Remediation

    Background of Water and Mold Damage In recent years, many insurance policies have instituted limits or caps on the amount that will be paid for “mold or microbial damage.” Often, what constitutes microbial damage is defined poorly, if at all, in the policy. Meanwhile, the funds available for water damage restoration are generally not separately capped, and are available up to ...

  • Why a Mold Inspection before Remediation is Always a Good Idea

    There are several important reasons why Indoor Environmental Technologies, Inc. (IET), and published industry standards, recommend that a mold inspection be performed by a separate company prior to starting mold remediation. In fact, many of the better remediation contractors in Florida will not start a remediation ...

  • Fate of As(V)-treated nano zero-valent iron: Determination of arsenic desorption potential under varying environmental conditions by phosphate extraction

    Nano zero-valent iron (NZVI) offers a promising approach for arsenic remediation in the subsurface environment, but the spent NZVI with elevated arsenic content left unattended at treated sites in subsurface could arouse safety concerns regarding the potential remobilization of arsenic under varying geochemical conditions. This paper presents a systematic study aimed at investigating the fate of ...

  • 8 Years is enough! RPI Group & BOS 100 Tackle PCE problem in Bedrock—Something Finally Worked!

    The Problem: In 2005, a phase I/phase II investigation revealed considerable (as much as 86 ppm in groundwater) PCE contamination at a retail dry cleaning operation. That news was bad enough, but the site sits on karst (clay over limestone bedrock), which meant that drilling, sampling, and installation of any kind of mechanical system or injecting remedial amendments would be a nightmare. ...
