Many remediation technologies achieve only limited success at sites challenged by low permeability soils, such as silts and clays. Electrokinetics (EK), a soil remediation technique recognized mainly for in situ treatment of low-permeability soils, has been combined with more conventional techniques and can significantly enhance the performance of several remediation technologies, including in situ chemical oxidation, in situ chemical reduction, enhanced in situ bioremediation, and phytoremediation. EK techniques can be used in tandem with conventional remediation techniques to achieve improved remediation performance, and this paper highlights new EK applications that might play a role in sustainable treatment of contaminated sites. http://www.academia.edu/32867192/Environmental_Electrokinetics_for_a_sustainable_subsurface
