ENGINEERING TOOLS FOR ENVIRONMENTAL RISK MANAGEMENT: 4. RISK REDUCTION TECHNOLOGIES AND CASE STUDIES

The success of remediation at contaminated industrial sites depends on the selection of appropriate conventional and innovative methods. This volume classifies remedial technologies and describes a "reactor approach" to understanding and managing in situ technologies similarly to reactor-based technologies. Passive artificial ecosystems, biodegradation-based remediation, and natural attenuation demonstrate the use of green technologies and show how engineering intervention can be minimized to limit damage to the environment. Management of inorganic contamination from the mining industry includes general discussions of leaching, bioleaching, and acid mine drainage. A case study of an abandoned mine in Hungary describes the innovative application of combined phytostabilization and chemical treatment. Biological and physicochemical methods, electrochemical remediation, and nanotechnologies are also addressed.
