Description

Excessive levels of heavy metals can be introduced into the environment, for example, by industrial waste or fertilizers. Soil represents a major sink for heavy metals ions, which can then enter the food chain via plants or leaching into groundwater. In Heavy Metal Ions in the Environment, the author looks at where heavy metals ions come from, how they interact with the environment and how they can be removed from the environment – by a process known as remediation. This book serves as a valuable addition to an increasingly important field of study, which is, at present, served by a limited number of archival texts.

Key Features

  • Includes comprehensive coverage of heavy metal ions in the environment
  • Is practical and easy to read
  • Is suitable for students and researchers in environmental science and environmental or chemical engineering

Readership

Graduate students and postgraduate/academic researchers in environmental science and environmental/chemical engineering.
