Soil Cleaning Books

  • Risk Assessment and Environmental Management - A Case Study in Sudbury, Ontario, Canada

    Soil contamination can create unacceptable ecological or human health risks. Mapping of contaminated soil sites and the resulting cleanup are time consuming and expensive tasks, requiring extensive amounts of geology, hydrology, chemistry and computer modeling ...

  • Bioavailability of Contaminants in Soils and Sediments: Processes, Tools, and Applications

    Bioavailability refers to the extent to which humans and ecological receptors are exposed to contaminants in soil or sediment. The concept of bioavailability has recently piqued the interest of the hazardous waste industry as an important consideration in deciding how much waste to clean up. The rationale is that if contaminants in soil and ...

  • Carbon sequestration options under the clean development mechanism to address land degradation - vol 92 (En)

    Series: World Soil Resources ReportsCarbon sequestration can be defined as the capture and secure storage of carbon that would otherwise de emitted to or remain in the atmosphere. This publication contains the results of a study on the origin and background of the carbon sequestration options and the Clean Development Mechanism. The attitude and ...

    Presents state-of-the-art research on soil risk assessment methodology. This publications contains 10 comprehensive, peer-reviewed papers covering the following key areas: Background Determination and Statistics -- one paper explores background concentration estimates using inorganic analytes from on-site soil samples; the other discusses small ...

  • Superfund Risk Assessment in Soil Contamination Studies

    Includes listing of modifications and innovations used in risk assessments accepted by the EPA. While beginners can benefit greatly from the papers presented here, this collection finds its best use in the hands of the experienced risk assessor. The papers present modifications of the basic EPA methodology which have been acceptable to ...

  • Technologies for Environmental Cleanup: Soil and Groundwater

    Industrialized nations are facing a broad range of environmental restoration problems associated with contamination of surface-subsurface soils. Remedial action is assigned a high priority because of possibly dangerous drinking water contamination and non-compliance situations. Numerous technologies, both commercially available or in various ...

  • Sulphur in Agroecosystems

    This is the second volume in the series Nutrients in Ecosystems. Sulphur as an essential plant nutrient has received little attention. This is explained by the facts that sulphur was obviously in sufficient supply from the atmosphere, from soil and as a by-product in mineral fertilizers. Increases in the yield potential and thus in the ...

  • The Modern Problems of Electrostatics with Applications in Environment Protection

    Among the many technological and legal efforts being made to restore our environment, electrostatic technologies may well hold the solution to the cleaning of air, water and soil. Such technologies include non-thermal plasma processing - electron beam irradiation, electrical discharge, hybrid plasma systems. The book also contains ...
