  • Hydraulic Conductivity and Waste Contaminant Transport in Soil

    Interest in hydraulic conductivity of soils and waste contaminant transport has increased substantially in recent years, largely due to environmental concerns. Assessments of potential contamination at a site are possible only if accurate information is available concerning the hydraulic conductivity of subsoils. STP 1142 provides this information, including detailed coverage of methods for ...

  • Leachate Recycle and the Augmentation of Biological Decomposition at Mumicipal Solid Waste Landfills (1991)

    Landfill disposal of MSW remains the major disposal option for many established solid waste programs.

  • Turning a Problem Into a Resource

    The Sillamäe Metallurgy Plant in Estonia was managed by the USSR Ministry of Medium-Scale Engineering and was built in 1946 to produce uranium metal from local shales. After these were found to be unsatisfactory, uranium ores were imported. Part of the plant was converted in the 1980s to produce rare earth oxides and niobium and tantalum from imported ores and concentrates. Uranium ...

  • Microbial Processing of Metal Sulfides

    The application of microbiological methods to the extraction of metals from minerals has definitely gained a prominent role and is supported by the several bioleaching and biooxidation processes operating in different sites over the world. In recent years new techniques and new results about proteomic and bioinformatics are bringing a new perspective on the microbial processes. This book focuses ...

  • Persistent Organic Pollutants in the Great Lakes

    The environment around the Laurentian Great Lakes region has been adversely affected by agricultural runoff, urban waste, industrial discharge, landfill leachate, and atmospheric deposition. Although there have been some improvements over the last 20 years, persistent toxic organic pollutants are now a serious problem. This book brings together what is known about the major classes of these ...

  • Environmental Effects of Afforestation in North-Western Europe

    Afforestation of former arable land is currently a common change in land use in many European countries. In addition to wood production, the new forests will provide a variety of environmental services, such as carbon sequestration or improved water quality. At the same time there may be negative impacts, such as reduced groundwater recharge. The contents of the book aims at developed techniques ...

The development of efficient membrane ...

  • Wastewater Treatment, Plant Dynamics and Management in Constructed and Natural Wetlands

    Wetlands were historically neglected until it was revealed that they could be economically valuable to man. They are one of the most dynamic ecosystems in the world and have many functions for society. For example, natural wetlands provide food staples, building materials, irrigation of agricultural lands, waterways, shelter for wildlife, and a means of flood control. Constructed wetlands provide ...
