An unmatched reference on electrochemical technologies for soil, sediment, and groundwater pollution remediation
Electrochemical technologies are emerging as important approaches for effective and efficient pollution remediation, both on their own and in concert with other remediation techniques. Electrochemical Remediation Technologies for Polluted Soils, Sediments and Groundwater provides a systematic and clear explanation of fundamentals, field applications, as well as opportunities and challenges in developing and implementing electrochemical remediation technologies. Written by leading authorities in their various areas, the text summarizes the latest research and offers case studies that illustrate equipment, installation, and methods employed in real-world remediations.
Divided into nine sections, the coverage includes:
Introduction and fundamental principles
Remediation of heavy metals and other inorganic pollutants
Remediation of organic pollutants
Remediation of mixed contaminants
Integrated (coupled) technologies
Economic and regulatory considerations
Field applications and performance assessment
Unique as a comprehensive reference on the subject, Electrochemical Remediation Technologies for Polluted Soils, Sediments and Groundwater will serve as a valuable resource to all environmental engineers, scientists, regulators, and policymakers.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR
Krishna R. Reddy is Professor of Civil and Environmental Engineering at the University of Illinois at Chicago (UIC). Dr. Reddy received his PhD in Civil Engineering from the Illinois Institute of Technology, Chicago. He received gold medals for being first in his class of BS (Civil Engineering) at Osmania University and MS (Civil Engineering) at the Indian Institute of Technology, Roorkee. His teaching and research expertise includes remediation of contaminated sites, waste containment systems, and beneficial reuse of waste/recycled materials. His research contributed to the understanding of fundamental geochemical processes and development of integrated electrochemical technologies to remediate contaminant mixtures. He is the coauthor of Geoenvironmental Engineering: Site Remediation, Waste Containment, and Emerging Waste Management Technologies, also published by Wiley.
Claudio Cameselle is Associate Professor in the Department of Chemical Engineering at the University of Vigo, Spain. He received his undergraduate degree and his PhD in chemistry at the University of Santiago de Compostela, Spain. He then moved to the University of Vigo, where he has been working as a faculty member for the last fourteen years. He spent a sabbatical year as visiting professor at the University of Illinois at Chicago in 2008. His teaching activities are in the areas of chemical engineering and environmental engineering. In recent years, his research activity has focused on the development of electrokinetic remediation for the treatment of soils and sludges polluted with heavy metals and organics.
