Readers who will find this book useful include professionals specializing in radioecology, safe disposal of radioactive waste, as well as decontamination, remediation legacies and impact of radioactive waste material on the environment. The opening section explores radioactive contamination and the impacts of waste from nuclear and conventional power plants, as well as radionuclide behavior in the natural environment. The chapters give a broad overview and reviews of a number of original publications on remediation strategies that were explored after the Chernobyl and Fukushima Nuclear Power plant accidents. The adverse health effects of heavy metals on human beings and its impact on the environment has been well-documented. The E-mail message field is required. Examples of modern ongoing facilities for ground water treatment and polluted sites remediation. The key features concern radionuclide toxicity in plants, how the radioactive materials are absorbed by plants, and how the plants cope with the toxic responses.
Category: Science Author : Eldon R. How to choose suitable filtration materials according to targeted compounds and estimate its efficiency. Particular emphasis has been given to technologies that are based on adsorption, electro-coagulation, bio-precipitation, bio-solubilization, phytoremediation and microbial electrolysis. Part 1 provides an introduction to the different types of contaminated site and their characteristics. Every participant in an environmental remediation effort can mutually benefit from Modern Project Management Techniques for the Environmental Remediation Industry.
The technologies are outlined in brief, and their advantages and limitations are discussed. Dispersed low level contamination poses a particular challenge. Evaluates the effectiveness of the Energy Dept's. Radioactive and other environmental contamination from uranium mining and milling-- 2. Metal contamination in the environment is one of the persisting global issues. Therefore, the molecular mechanisms and genetic basis of transport into and within plants needs to be understood for two reasons: The effectiveness of radionuclide uptake into crop plants — so-called transfer coefficient — is a prerequisite for the calculation of dose due to the food path.
Hence, the options previously proposed, such as isolation of the contaminated site or movement of the contaminated mass to a secure disposal site after excavation, are becoming unsuitable from the economic point of view, and instead, decontamination alternatives are preferred. Many techniques are not efficient below certain concentration thresholds or entail more severe impacts on certain environmental compartments than the contamination itself. The need for a holistic design of the remedial action is stressed. Series Title: , 64; Responsibility: edited by Leo van Velzen. Several physico-chemical and biological technologies have been successfully implemented to prevent and control the discharge of industrial heavy metal emissions. The technologies are outlined in brief, and their advantages and limitations are discussed.
In order to conflate both metal removal and recovery, new technologies have been successfully tested, both at the lab and pilot-scale. Lifetime, risks and cost estimation of technology. Part 1 provides an introduction to the different types of contaminated site and their characteristics. Part 2 addresses environmental restoration frameworks and processes. Finally, risk evaluation is incorporated, giving special attention to possible impacts during or after implementation of the remediation strategies.
It's also become notorious for high budget overruns and frequent schedule delays, as environmental remediation's technological aspects become subject to political, managerial and economic concerns. Part 3 then reviews different remediation techniques and methods of waste disposal. Many techniques are not efficient below certain concentration thresholds or entail more severe impacts on certain environmental compartments than the contamination itself. Technologies for ground water treatment. This book provides a comprehensive overview of this area. To meet the global metal demand, in recent years, novel research lines have started to focus on the recovery of metals from metal contaminated waste streams. Mining activity and its waste are an environmental concern.
Topics such as green chemistry in industry, green energy: solar photons to fuels, green nanotechnology and sustainability, and green chemistry modeling address a wide array of iusses encouraging the use of economical ecofriendly benign technologies, which not only improve the yield, but also illustrates the concept of zero waste, a subject of interest to both chemists and environmentalists alike. Part 2 addresses environmental restoration frameworks and processes. Part Two addresses environmental restoration frameworks and processes. The processes by which radionuclides can be incorporated into vegetation can either originate from activity interception by external plant surfaces either directly from the atmosphere or from resuspended material , or through uptake of radionuclides via the root system. Environmental remediation and restoration aim to reduce exposure to radiation from contaminated soil or groundwater. This groundwater eventually drains into adjacent water sources. Evaluates the effectiveness of the Energy Dept's.
Environmental remediation and restoration aim to reduce exposure to radiation from contaminated soil or groundwater. Part 1 provides an introduction to the different types of contaminated site and their characteristics. The E-mail message field is required. It focuses on the extent and nature of hazardous waste sites and how their effects may be studied in humans and other systems, using in vitro models, biomarkers of cellular and molecular damage, and animal models. Part 3 then reviews different remediation techniques and methods of waste disposal. Two contrasting case studies are presented for sites where cost—benefit analysis has been applied in different ways.
Part One provides an introduction to the different types of contaminated sites and their characteristics. This book provides information on hazard assessment and remediation of the disturbed environment, including stabilization of contaminated soils and phytoremediation, and will help scientists and public authorities formulate answers to the daily challenges related to the restoration of contaminated land. Filtration Materials for Groundwater: A Guide to Good Practice presents the up-to-date technology of purification of polluted ground water, its treatment for industrial and human needs and the remediation of polluted sites. Indeed, ultrasonic systems are extremely sensitive and vulnerable to operational parameters which cannot be controlled without a good knowledge and understanding of physical and chemical phenomena. Useful case studies are provided that explore the latest technological developments and future trends for affected area decontamination. Environmental issues and regulations are presented in view of applying graphene oxide dispersion to the purification of aqueous medium, especially for industrial wastewater. Part 3 then reviews different remediation techniques and methods of waste disposal.
