DEBUNKING MYTHS ABOUT SUSTAINABLE REMEDIATION
Smith, J.W.N. | Remediation 29(2):7-15(2019)

With the recent publication of ISO Standard 18504 and the benefit of a decade's worth of hindsight on sustainable remediation programs implementation and project delivery, this paper summarizes myths and misunderstandings that have been stated regarding sustainable remediation and seeks to debunk them. In dispelling some of the myths about sustainable remediation set out in this paper, it is hoped that consistent application of ISO18504/SuRF-UK (or equivalently robust guidance) will facilitate even wider use of sustainable remediation around the world. https://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/epdf/10.1002/rem.21587.
