1288 pages
June 2004


Wiley's Remediation Technologies Handbook: Major Contaminant Chemicals and Chemical Groups, extracted from the Enviroglobe database, consists of 368 chemicals and chemical groups. This book lists in alphabetical order these chemical and chemical groups along with the numerous technologies, many of which are patented, or trademarked techniques, to remediate them. A short description of each of these technologies is provided along with appropriate references. Wiley's Remediation Technologies Handbook: Major Contaminant Chemicals and Chemical Groups:
  • Covers the most important chemical and chemical groups that are found to pollute the environment, and the ways to remediate them.
  • Gives succinct abstract describing the numerous technologies used to clean-up a wide range of pollutants.
  • Provides the uses and limitations of each technique.

Note: CD-ROM/DVD and other supplementary materials are not included as part of eBook file.
