Bioremediation and Natural Attenuation: Process Fundamentals by Pedro J. Alvarez,Walter A. Illman

By Pedro J. Alvarez,Walter A. Illman

A groundbreaking textual content source on typical attenuation technology

Natural attenuation is speedily changing into a popular method of deal with groundwater and soil infection by means of detrimental components in petroleum-product releases and leachate from harmful waste websites and landfills. This publication offers, lower than one hide, the present methodologies wanted by way of groundwater scientists and engineers of their efforts to judge subsurface infection difficulties, to estimate chance to human healthiness and ecosystems via mathematical versions, and to layout and formulate applicable remediation strategies.

Incorporating the authors' broad backgrounds as educators, researchers, and specialists in environmental biotechnology and hydrogeology, the textual content emphasizes new recommendations and up to date advances within the technological know-how, including:

  • Quantification of the position of microbes in typical attenuation
  • Biodegradation and chemical transformation principles
  • Immobilization and section change
  • Biotransformation mechanisms
  • Groundwater move and contaminant transport
  • Analytical types for contaminant delivery and response processes
  • Numerical modeling of contaminant shipping, transformation, and degradation

Detailed descriptions of primary techniques, characterization ways, and analytical and numerical equipment tied to proper real-world purposes make Bioremediation and common Attenuation: procedure basics and Mathematical Models either a well timed path textual content in hydrogeology and environmental engineering and a useful reference for someone within the groundwater or hazard evaluation professions.
