Discusses current applications and new developments in separation science for the remediation of contaminated groundwater and soil. Examines waste treatment and waste avoidance technologies and the applications of separation science to waste minimization and preconcentration. Presents fundamental research for developing new technologies in the remediation of contaminated aquifers and surface and subsurface media. Offers insights into measuring the depth of problems and the effectiveness of treatment. Includes an overview chapter examining the extent of environmental abuse, the high cost of cleanup, and the federal regulations that govern cleanup and disposal of present waste.
