In situ remediation techniques have experienced a boom over the last few years, thereby producing a wide range of valuable experiences. Their results have demonstrated that in situ techniques are a mature alternative to conventional remediation techniques. Irrespective of future policy developments, it is impossible to imagine future remediation practice without the use of in situ techniques. The book presents an overview of recent developments in the field of in situ soil remediation. The book is unique in that it is not a compilation of unrelated case studies. A conceptual approach has been chosen; remediation models described in this book are illustrated from a practical point of view. The authors present the Dutch way of treating contaminated land; The Netherlands is renowned for being at the forefront of remediation techniques as a result of the country's progressiveness and experience in this area.

Editorial Reviews

This book on recent developments in the field of in situ soil remediation focuses on Dutch methods of treating contaminated land. The authors discuss contaminants in terms of their degradation, their distribution over soil compartments, and their transport in a heterogeneous soil system. Other topics include criteria for judging remediations, bottlenecks that arise in implementation, and possible future techniques. Several practical cases focus on the engineer's rationale for the design and dimensioning of the remediation. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
