Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
From the reviews of the first edition:

"This book offers an impressive overview of 12 years of work by the research centre of the German Research Foundation under the title ‘Treatment of contaminated soil’. … As such, it is compulsory reading for the fast-growing group among us who are involved in training and the applications of this area of science in its multitude of aspects. … the book is a must for all those active in research, training, and policy application in the area of soil decontamination." (Luc Hens, International Journal of Environment and Pollution, Vol. 21 (4), 2004)

"Treatment of Contaminated Soil – Fundamentals, Analysis, Applications is recommended for those who want up-to-date information on the possibility of bioremediation of organic pollutants, as well as the physical treatment for the cleanup of soil material. For those responsible for the cleanup of contaminated sites, this book is highly useful since the contributing authors … not only looked for the technically possible but also for the economically viable procedures." (Andreas Winkler, Environmental Geology, Vol. 45 (5), 2004)
