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.
