  1. 1. Assessing Soil Functions for Sustainable Remediation of Contaminated Sites

    Author : Yevheniya Volchko; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; soil functions; Contaminated sites soil; minimum data set; soil ecosystem services; sustainability assessment; remediation; soil quality indicators;

    Abstract : Soil contamination is a worldwide problem. Soil remediation is often carried out to reduce the risks posed by contaminants in the soil to human health and environment. Contaminant concentration is typically the only soil quality aspect maintained in remediation projects. READ MORE

  2. 2. Value of Information Analysis for Site Investigations in Remediation Projects

    Author : Pär-Erik Back; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; uncertainty; value of information; soil; decision analysis; sampling; remediation; contaminated land; site investigation;

    Abstract : Site investigations of contaminated land are associated with high costs. From a societal point of view, just enough economic resources should be spent to allow societys limited resources to be allocated optimally to sustainable development. READ MORE

  3. 3. Microbial remediation of heavy metal ion polluted soil and water

    Author : Torbjörn Håkansson; Bioteknik; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; EDTA; metal; soil; remediation; Sulphate reducing bactera; biogas; water;

    Abstract : Contamination of soil and water by heavy metal ions (HMs) is a problem all over the world.The use of biological methods alone or in combination with other techniques for treatment of such polluted sites constitutes a major challenge. READ MORE

  4. 4. Investigating the Relation between Efficient, Effective and Sustainable Remediation of Contaminated Sites

    Author : Robert Anderson; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; SAMHÄLLSVETENSKAP; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; SOCIAL SCIENCES; decision support; sustainability assessment; efficient remediation; multi-criteria decision analysis; contaminated sites; cost-benefit analysis; effective remediation;

    Abstract : Remediation of contaminated sites reduces negative impacts to humans and the environment, but the process itself is typically associated with high costs to society and large environmental footprints. The sustainable remediation concept has, over the past decade, brought increased attention to the often-overlooked contradictory effects of site remediation. READ MORE

  5. 5. Remediation of materials with mixed contaminants : treatability, technology and final disposal

    Author : Kristin Elgh-Dalgren; Patrick van Hees; Bert Allard; Dan Berggren Kleja; Örebro universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; Bioremediation; Microtox®; mixed contaminants; re-cycling; soil remediation; soil washing.; Environmental chemistry; Miljökemi; Enviromental Science; Miljövetenskap;

    Abstract : Contaminated soils are a large issue worldwide and much effort has been made to find efficient remediation methods. At many contaminated sites, mixtures of dif­ferent contaminants with different properties are present, which may lead to addi­tional problems, and thus additional costs, during the remediation process.
