Summary

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 technology.
Topics include:
  • Physical-Chemical processes for in situ remediation by adding amendments for stabilization
  • The mechanics of metal retention and release from soils
  • Chemical remediation method for soil contaminated with CD and Pb
  • The effect of soil pH on the distribution of metals among soil fractions
  • Physical and electrical separation methods for soil remediation
  • Relationship between the phytoavailability and the extractability of heavy metals
  • An overview on environmental restoration of Se-contaminated soils
  • Trace elements in the soil-plant system under tropical environment
  • The process of metal removal by chelation using amino acids
  • The effects of natural zeolelite and bentonite on the phytoavailability of heavy metals
  • Metal uptake by agricultural crops from sewage-sludge treated soils
    In many cases an integrated approach to the remediation of metals contaminated soil yields the best results. Environmental Restoration of Metals-Contaminated Soils explores the emerging issues of the biogeochemistry of trace elements in the environment and provides an approach combining elements from biology, geochemistry, hydrology, and soil physics and chemistry.
