About the book
Since the issue related to an overload of heavy metals in the environment is one of the crucial aspects of sustainable development, the aim of this book will be to describe state of the art techniques used for efficient removal of heavy metals from the environment. Special attention will be paid to methods of waters treatment (industrial and natural) and soil remediation to improve its state.
The description of possible chemical or physical techniques available nowadays will be enriched by biological methods. Methods with a high potential for commercialization are of particular importance, that is why some of the material presented in this book will relate to this aspect.
