Abstract :

A variety of techniques for soil remediation have been compiled and summarized. The paper is intended to provide an overview of remediation methods currently utilized for soil remediation. Remediation methods, categorized as biological, chemical, or physical, are covered for contaminated soils and environmental waters. It is recognized that no single specific technology may be considered as a treatment for all contaminated site problems. This paper reviews soil remediation technologies, such as isolation and containment, solidification/ stabilization technologies, soil washing and flushing technologies, electrokinetics and phytoremediation. Selection of the most appropriate soil remediation method depends on site characteristics, concentration, types of pollutants to be removed and the final use of a contaminated medium.
