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, Fifteenth Edition
EPA 542-R-17-001, 2017

The Superfund Remedy Report (SRR), Fifteenth Edition, was published by the EPA Office of Superfund Remediation and Technology Innovation (OSRTI) in August 2017. The report focuses on Superfund remedial actions selected in fiscal years 2012, 2013 and 2014, and on remedy trends since 1982. The report includes remedies selected in 308 decision documents (Records of Decision [RODs], ROD amendments, and Explanations of Significant Differences with changes to remedy components) signed in this three-year period. The SRR compiles data on overall remedy selection and remedies for source materials (such as soil and sediments), groundwater, surface water and air related to vapor intrusion. The report also analyzes media and contaminants for sites with remedies. The appendices summarize all of the remedy components selected for sources and groundwater in each decision document signed in 2012, 2013, and 2014.
