Metal Contaminated Soil Books

  • In-Situ Remediation of Arsenic-Contaminated Sites

    This textbook provides an introduction, the scientific background, case studies and future perspectives of in-situ arsenic remediation technologies for soils, soil water and groundwater at geogenic and anthropogenic contaminated sites. The case studies present in-situ technologies about natural arsenic, specifically arsenate and arsenite, but also ...

  • Health Effects of Metals and Related Substances in Drinking Water

    Metals are inorganic substances that occur naturally in geological formations. Naturally occurring metals are dissolved in water when it comes into contact with rock or soil material. Some metals are essential for life and are naturally available in our food and water. Trace amounts of metals are common in water, and these are normally not harmful ...

  • Arsenic Contamination in the World

    Arsenic Contamination in the World: an International Sourcebook provides a global compendium of cited arsenic occurrences in the world as they affect public health. This book details arsenic contamination by source, region and arsenic-affected country. Arsenic is identified in 105 countries and territories, representing a larger database than any ...

  • Heavy Metals in the Environment

    Offering broad coverage of both basic and advanced principals and applications, this volume provides chemical and environmental engineers with the most complete resource available on remediation of heavy metal contaminants with an emphasis on innovative and alternative approaches. It investigates a wide variety of environmental pollution sources ...

  • 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 ...

  • 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. ...

  • 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. ...

  • Environmental Restoration of Metals-Contaminated Soils

    Written by a multidisciplinary group of scientists from around the globe Environmental Restoration of Metals-Contaminated Soils provides a summary of the current environmental remediation ...

  • Contaminated Land and its Reclamation

    Contaminated land and the methods and legal controls governing its reclamation for subsequent development and use are of great current interest and concern. This volume in the Issues in Environmental Science and Technology series contains seven articles which treat the many aspects of this subject, ranging from risk assessment and risk management, ...

  • GEMS Environment Library No. 05: The Contamination of Food

    The UNEP/FAO/ WHO Food Contamination Monitoring Programme (GEMS/Food) has been collecting data on food contamination through a network of participating institutes since 1976. In 1988, data from the monitoring programme and other sources covering the years 1971—85 were compiled, analysed and published by GEMS as a joint UNEP/FAO/ WHO document ...

  • Emerging Contaminant - Tungsten Fact Sheet

    This fact sheet provides a brief summary for tungsten, including: physical and chemical properties, environmental and health impacts, existing federal and state guidelines, detection and treatment methods, and additional sources of information. Tungsten was originally considered a metal that remains stable in soil and does not dissolve easily in ...

  • Soil Chemical Pollution, Risk Assessment, Remediation and Security

    The main objective of the book is to contribute to the existing knowledge on soil pollution and remediation. Stress is given to: critical assessment of the used analyses and methods for study effects in combined chemical pollution (organic pollutants and pesticides, metals) on soil biota and fertility; to evaluate specific aspects of the risk ...

  • 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 ...

  • Phytoremediation of Metal-Contaminated Soils

    This is the first book aimed at developing a common language among scientists working in the field of Phytoremediation. Authors of the main chapters are leading scientists in this field: some of them were among the first to have suggested the use of hyperaccumulator plants for extraction of metals from soils. Members of an EU funded research ...

  • 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 ...

  • Contaminated Soils, Sediments and Water Volume 10
