Review of In Situ Remediation Technologies for Lead, Zinc, and Cadmium in Soil 2004
Author(s): Martin, Todd A. (Integral Consulting); Michael V. Ruby (Exponent) Remediation Journal, Vol 14 No 3, p 35-53, 2004
Mine: Waste Type: soil Contaminant(s): lead, zinc, cadmium Technology Type: various in situ technologies
Keywords: in situ remediation, technology summary, lead, zinc, cadmium
Abstract: This article presents a review of current and developing in situ technologies for the remediation of soils contaminated with lead, zinc, and/or cadmium. A literature review identified seven in situ remediation technologies: soil flushing, phytoextraction, phytostabilization, chemical stabilization, solidification/stabilization, vitrification, and electrokinetic remediation. In considering each technology for its ability to meet a specific set of remediation objectives under a range of conditions, the reviewers provide a general summary of typical applications and limitations of these technologies. The paper includes a general summary of which technologies are most applicable to common remedial scenarios.
