This text examines the application of chelating agents for the treatment of soil contaminated with metals.
Remediation can be costly and chelating agents are an attractive new technology for land decontamination because they enhance metal extraction from contaminated soil or sediment and facilitate metal mobility in subsurface soils.
Process fundamentals, engineering applications, and recent advances are covered in the book. It is ideal for engineers, scientists, and professionals working with contaminated land remediation.
