Wiley's Remediation Technologies Handbook: Major Contaminant Chemicals and Chemical Groups, extracted from the Enviroglobe database, consists of 368 chemicals and chemical groups. This book lists in alphabetical order these chemical and chemical groups along with the numerous technologies, many of which are patented, or trademarked techniques, to remediate them. A short description of each of these technologies is provided along with appropriate references. Wiley's Remediation Technologies Handbook: Major Contaminant Chemicals and Chemical Groups:

  • Covers the most important chemical and chemical groups that are found to pollute the environment, and the ways to remediate them.
  • Gives succinct abstract describing the numerous technologies used to clean-up a wide range of pollutants.
  • Provides the uses and limitations of each technique.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"The author deserves an A+ on the effort regarding the technologies recognized and evaluated…" (Environmental Practice, March 2005)

"...a concise reference...where all the information is in one volume...a welcome addition to the libraries of environmental consultants, regulators, and brownfield developers…" (Ground Water, May/June 2005)

"...a must-have for all stakeholders in the contaminated sites industry." (Journal of Environmental Quality, May/June 2005)

"...a worthwhile addition to the libraries of environmental consultants, regulators, and brownfield developers…" (The Professional Geologist, March/April 2005)

"…compiles enough useful information for site remediation to make it a valuable library addition." (E-STREAMS, February 2005)

"…a valuable reference text as well as an excellent educational resource regarding remediation technologies. It will look good standing next to all the other handbooks on my bookshelf." (Chemical Health & Safety, November/December 2004)

"…the book represents a very useful compilation of site remediation information. It should save those seeking cost and technical data much time in literature search." (Journal of Hazardous Materials, September 2004)
