Case Studies and Future Prospects of Soil Remediation Strategies
Soil remediation strategies are subjected to the quality and quantity of the contaminant(s) as well as geographical conditions of the target site. There is no single soil remediation method that can aid as a ‘silver bullet’ to restore the environmental deterioration without any residual effect. For successful soil remediation different physical, chemical and biological strategies can be implemented in an integrated way. This chapter encompasses various case studies related to the implementation of remediation strategies on a large scale. This chapter also focuses on the explicit information and recent advances on the available soil treatment techniques and their future prospects. Thus, the ideal soil remediation strategies ensure environmental protection by using natural resources for sustainable soil remediation which is economically and environmentally beneficial for the society.
