Bioremediation and Natural Attenuation: Process Fundamentals by Pedro J. Alvarez,Walter A. Illman

By Pedro J. Alvarez,Walter A. Illman

A groundbreaking textual content source on average attenuation technology

Natural attenuation is speedily changing into a popular method of deal with groundwater and soil illness by way of detrimental elements in petroleum-product releases and leachate from unsafe waste websites and landfills. This publication offers, below one disguise, the present methodologies wanted by way of groundwater scientists and engineers of their efforts to guage subsurface infection difficulties, to estimate probability to human overall healthiness and ecosystems via mathematical types, and to layout and formulate acceptable remediation strategies.

Incorporating the authors' large backgrounds as educators, researchers, and experts in environmental biotechnology and hydrogeology, the textual content emphasizes new innovations and up to date advances within the technological know-how, including:

  • Quantification of the function of microbes in typical attenuation
  • Biodegradation and chemical transformation principles
  • Immobilization and part change
  • Biotransformation mechanisms
  • Groundwater movement and contaminant transport
  • Analytical types for contaminant shipping and response processes
  • Numerical modeling of contaminant shipping, transformation, and degradation

Detailed descriptions of basic approaches, characterization ways, and analytical and numerical equipment tied to suitable real-world functions make Bioremediation and common Attenuation: technique basics and Mathematical Models either a well timed path textual content in hydrogeology and environmental engineering and a priceless reference for an individual within the groundwater or chance overview professions.
