Electrochemical Remediation Technologies for Polluted Soils, Sediments and Groundwater
Reddy, K.R. and C. Cameselle (eds.).
John Wiley & Sons, Inc., Hoboken, NJ. ISBN: 978-0-470-38343-8, 732 pp, 2009

In addition to describing the fundamental principles of electrokinetics, coverage includes application of the technology to remediation of organic pollutants, heavy metals and other inorganic pollutants, and mixed contaminants using approaches such as electrokinetic barriers and integrated (coupled) technologies. The text summarizes the latest research and offers case studies that illustrate equipment, installation, and methods employed in real-world cleanups. Table of Contents

Journal of Environmental Science and Health, Part A, Volume 43, Issue 8, 2008

This issue of the journal is focused on research into a variety of applications of electrokinetics in remediation. In addition to a paper on basic aspects of electrokinetic remediation technology, specific attention is given to electrokinetic removal of heavy metals and organic pollutants. Work also is described that couples electrokinetic remediation with other technologies, such as chemical oxidation for organic pollutants, bioremediation, nanoscale particles, chemical oxidation in the liquid phase, permeable reactive barriers, and other applications.

Superfund Remedy Report, Sixteenth Edition
EPA 542-R-20-001, 2020

EPA prepares the Superfund Remedy Report to provide information and analyses on remedies EPA selected to address contamination at Superfund National Priorities List and Superfund Alternative Approach sites. This report is the latest in a series, prepared since 1991, on Superfund remedy selection. The latest edition focuses on the analysis of Superfund remedial actions selected in fiscal years 2015, 2016 and 2017.

The data that forms the basis of the analyses contained in SRR 16th Edition can be found at Superfund Data and Reports by downloading Contaminant of Concern Data for Decision Documents by Media, FY 1982-2017 and Remedy Component Data for Decision Documents by Media, FY 1982-2017.
