Assessment and Remediation of Contaminated Sediments: by Danny Reible, Tomáš Lánczos (auth.), Danny Reible, Tomas

By Danny Reible, Tomáš Lánczos (auth.), Danny Reible, Tomas Lanczos (eds.)

Contaminated sediments pose essentially the most tricky web site remediation matters. infected sediments normally live in spatially variable and dynamic structures topic to seasonal stream diversifications and episodic typhoon occasions. the quantity of sediments that has to be controlled at specific websites usually exceeds 1000000 cubic meters, dwarfing many infected soil websites. those sediments also are linked to both daunting volumes of water and efforts to take away the infection usually entrains much more water. The environmental protection of either NATO and companion nations is in danger as a result pervasive nature of sediment infection of rivers, lakes and harbors. A NATO complex study Workshop was once convened in Bratislava in may possibly 2005 to debate present ways to coping with infected sediments and to spot learn essential to conquer striking difficulties.

In this article, drawn from displays and dialogue of that workshop, present ways to the review and remediation of infected sediments could be mentioned with the emphasis on in-situ administration. actual, chemical and organic methods for the evaluation and remediation of sediments are all addressed. constructing regulatory and strategic ways are highlighted with a unique emphasis at the strength for organic remediation for the administration of infected sediments.

M. 367/2003, quality standards are given for 26 priority substances likely to be found in sediment Being the Venice Lagoon regulated by a special low, Sediment Quality Criteria (SQC) were enforced since 1993. They are based on the levels of contaminants (heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, total hydrocarbons and organohalogen compounds). These SQC are comparable with those in use in other European countries and with the criteria used in the USA.

Recently, the research project SeRTech (Sediment Remediation Technologies), funded by the Italian Ministry of Education and Scientific and Technology Research (MIUR), has been developed by the Venice Research Consortium (CVR) in order to define a technological competitive offer to the reuse/recycling/disposal of contaminated dredged sediment. 5 million m3 classified as C+, see previous section) and to develop an integrated cost-effective treatment system to address the high and heterogeneous contamination compounds (heavy metals, polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons and organo-cloride) and matrixes, such as those of the Venice lagoon.

E. APITZ ET AL. In spite of these critical functions, both soil and sediment scientists and managers have had difficulty engaging the interest of the regulatory community and the public.
