EFFECT OF REACTIVE MATS ON IN-SITU REMEDIATION OF CONTAMINATED MARINE SEDIMENT
De Gisi, S., F. Todaro, and M. Notarnicola.
Procedia Environmental Science, Engineering and Management 4(1):17-22(2017)

Among remediation options for contaminated sediments, in situ capping appears to be an approach that is less expensive and disruptive and more durable. Active capping involves the use of chemically reactive materials (i.e., activated carbon, apatite, zeolite, organoclay) that sequester and/or degrade sediment contaminants to reduce their mobility, toxicity, and bioavailability. The performance of different types of active materials tested in recent active capping studies is reviewed with a special focus on reactive mats. Reactive mats consist of a reactive layer containing one or more neutralizing or otherwise reactive materials confined between two permeable geotextile layers. http://www.procedia-esem.eu/pdf/issues/2017/no1/3_De%20Gisi_17.pdf
