Remedial Options for Metals-Contaminated Sites by Battelle Memorial In, Battelle Memorial Institute Staff, Michael D. Royer, Arun R. Gavaskar

The expertise of EPA research scientists has been combined to produce this comprehensive handbook, Remedial Options for Metals-Contaminated Sites. Drawing from an extensive EPA study of metals-contaminated sites, this book describes the sources, physical makeup, and chemical behavior of metal-containing wastes and state-of-the-art technologies for their remediation.
The book first explores the origin of waste and how the waste matrix and contaminants interact, crucial factors in understanding environmental fate and transport and in selecting appropriate remediation technologies. Following this solid grounding in environmental chemistry, the book describes methods to remediate metal-containing wastes, including immobilization, chemical and biological treatment, and separation/concentration options. Remedial Options for Metals-Contaminated Sites also explores the current applications and limitations of these technologies. It is a valuable resource for personnel involved in the management, treatment, or minimization of metals-contaminated wastes.
