TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION FOR SOIL/SEDIMENT REMEDIATION
Sarkar, B., D.C.W. Tsang, H. Song, S. Ding, and M. Vithanage.
Journal of Soils and Sediments 19(12):3881-3953(2019)

This special journal issue compiles six papers covering different topics on novel soil/sediment intervention strategies to remediate both organic and inorganic contaminants. The papers were presented at the Contaminated Land, Ecological Assessment and Remediation conference in Hong Kong (August 16-18, 2018), and cover innovative and emerging approaches for remediating soil and sediment. The remediation approaches include soil amendments with natural and synthetic materials, recycled biomasses and waste materials, and phytoremediation with efficient plant species. The remediation approaches may be less expensive and more environmentally friendly than many conventional dig-and-dump and incineration type approaches.
