The individually authored chapters within this text describe physico-chemical and biological technologies implemented to prevent and control industrial heavy metal emissions; to cover principles, underlying mechanisms, thermodynamic functions, kinetics, and modeling of technologies used to treat heavy metals in effluents; and to provide case studies of heavy metal removal and recovery from mining and metallurgical wastes, construction and demolition wastes, spent catalysts, and electronic wastes. Precipitation, biosorption, permeable reactive barriers, constructed wetlands, and bioelectrochemical systems are among the treatment technologies discussed.
