Contents Introduction -- Sorption, sequestration and binding of contaminants to soils -- Couples of precipitation-dissolution and reduction-oxidation reactions -- Biological assimilation and degradation -- Photolysis and photocatalytic degradation -- Phytoprocesses -- Wetlands -- Physical processes and natural attenuation.
Summary "Natural Processes and Systems for Hazardous Waste Treatment discusses the various natural processes for the attenuation and degradation of hazardous compounds and these processes' application in inexpensive natural systems. Major attenuation processes that are covered include: sorption and sequestration, biodegradation and assimilation processes, photo-processes, phyto-processes, oxidation-reduction, and physical processes. Extensive up-to-date references are presented, as are numerous illustrations, tables, and case studies. This book will serve as a reference for undergraduate or graduate students, as well as for practicing professionals."--BOOK JACKET.
