About this Book
An unmatched reference on electrochemical technologies for soil, sediment, and groundwater pollution remediation
Electrochemical technologies are emerging as important approaches for effective and efficient pollution remediation, both on their own and in concert with other remediation techniques. Electrochemical Remediation Technologies for Polluted Soils, Sediments and Groundwater provides a systematic and clear explanation of fundamentals, field applications, as well as opportunities and challenges in developing and implementing electrochemical remediation technologies. Written by leading authorities in their various areas, the text summarizes the latest research and offers case studies that illustrate equipment, installation, and methods employed in real-world remediations.
Divided into nine sections, the coverage includes:
Introduction and fundamental principles
Remediation of heavy metals and other inorganic pollutants
Remediation of organic pollutants
Remediation of mixed contaminants
Integrated (coupled) technologies
Economic and regulatory considerations
Field applications and performance assessment
Unique as a comprehensive reference on the subject, Electrochemical Remediation Technologies for Polluted Soils, Sediments and Groundwater will serve as a valuable resource to all environmental engineers, scientists, regulators, and policymakers.
