Syllabus
Prerequisites: Basic concepts of environmental sanitary engineering (biodegradation processes) and organic chemistry
Target skills and knowledge: Goal of the course is to provide an overview of contamination processes, test methods for the characterization of contaminated soil and techniques for contaminated soil treatment.
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to:
• design the characterization plan of a contaminated site
• select the more appropriate technique for remediation
Course unit contents: • Sources to soil and groundwater pollution
• Characteristics of the contaminants and their interactions with soil and groundwater
• Sampling and analysis for site characterization
• Attenuation and degradation of pollutants
• In situ and ex-situ techniques for remediation of contaminated soil and groundwater (Biological, Chemical-physical and Thermal treatment): Soil vapor extraction; Air sparging; Soil washing; Chemical oxidation; Thermal desorption; Bioremediation; Pump and treat; Reactive barriers.
• Landfill Remediation
• Case studies
