This book presents a comprehensive and detailed description of remediation techniques for metal-contaminated soils derived from both natural processes and anthropogenic activities. @article{osti_, title = {Remediation of lead-contaminated soils}, author = {Peters, R W and Shem, L}, abstractNote = {Excavation and transport of soil contaminated with heavy metals has generally been the standard remediation technique for treatment of heavy-metal-contaminated soils. This approach is not a permanent solution; moreover, off-site shipment . However, conventional technologies for metal-contaminated soil remediation have often been expensive and disruptive. This book provides comprehensive, state-of-the-art coverage of the natural, sustainable alternatives that use a wide range of biological materials in the removal/detoxification of heavy metals, consequently leading to the.

Free shipping for many products! Metals enter into the human food chain through plant uptake and thus cause human health problems. Different techniques are used for the safe use of metal-contaminated soils. Growing plants to remediate metal-contaminated soils (phytoremediation) is a good technique for soils with low to moderate levels of metal contamination. 1. Introduction. Soil contamination by heavy metals is a worldwide problem for human health and safe food production. Except for uncommon geogenic origins, heavy metal contaminants are inadvertently introduced to soils through anthropogenic activities such as mining, smelting, warfare and military training, electronic industries, fossil fuel consumption, waste disposal, Cited by:   Biomanagement of Metal-Contaminated Soils. by.
