Chelating Agents for Land Decontamination Technologies by Daniel C. W. Tsang, editor, Irene M. C. Lo, Rao Y.

By Daniel C. W. Tsang, editor, Irene M. C. Lo, Rao Y. Surampalli

Chelating brokers for Land Decontamination applied sciences examines the appliance of chelating brokers for the remedy of soil infected with metals. infected land remediation is a common and expensive challenge, and the conventional excavation-and-disposal therapy strategy isn't really a sustainable answer. Chelating brokers (organic compounds which could bind steel ions) are an enticing new expertise for land decontamination, simply because chelating brokers increase steel extraction from infected soil or sediment and facilitate steel mobility in subsurface soils. Chapters during this publication conceal the method basics in addition to engineering functions and up to date advances for using chelating brokers in soil washing, soil flushing, phytoremediation, and electrokinetic remediation. They handle the applying of chelating brokers for either ex situ and in situ soil remediation applied sciences. The wide use of illustrations and precis tables is mixed with updated references. This compilation of engineering purposes and learn findings for various chelating agent superior remediation applied sciences should be beneficial to environmental engineers, scientists, and selection makers concerning infected land remediation
