Contaminated Soils offers state-of-the-art technologies for detection and remediation of diesel contaminated soils that can be used by environmental professionals to maximize the practical application of theory. The book covers all aspects of assessment of soils contaminated by diesel fuel and discusses the most successful remediation techniques currently available. These techniques include the use of hydrocarbon analyses for environmental assessment and remediation, physical and biological treatments, and vent walls for enhancing biodegradation of contaminated soils. The development of a monoclonal antibody immunoassay for detecting gasoline and diesel fuel in the environment and a comparison of the purge and trap procedure versus the extraction procedure for detecting kerosene and diesel fuel No. 2 are examined as well. The book concludes with a chapter discussing human health-based soil cleanup guidelines for diesel fuel No. 2.

Contaminated Soils is a must for professionals concerned with the quality of groundwater and hazardous waste cleanup, regulators, oil company officials, and libraries.
