Stabilisation and Solidification of Contaminated Soil and Waste: Science and Practice
The most complete authoritative books on the subject written in the last 20 years – making them the definitive guide to S/S.
Stabilisation/Solidification of Contaminated Soil and Waste comprises 2 handbooks designed to provide students, practitioners, site owners, and regulators with authoritative guidance to the science underpinning this versatile remedial technology, and how it is applied in real-world situations.
Stabilisation/Solidification (S/S) uses readily available cementitious binders to turn contaminated soil and waste into a rock-like product that reduces the risk to public health and the environment. S/S has been employed at hundreds of sites in the USA, Canada, and Europe to improve the physical and/or chemical properties of contaminated soil and waste to enable development to take place or to safely manage a source of pollution.
Science: discusses soil properties and the soil-binder system along with the scientific basis for immobilizing inorganic and organic contaminants. The long term viability of S/S treatment is discussed with reference to the maintenance of design performance and groundwater quality.

Practice: describes how S/S is designed and implemented, including discussions on risk reduction, the development of performance specifications, available binders, treatability studies, in-situ and ex-situ equipment/operations, quality assurance, capping, site closure including long term monitoring strategies. The extensive appendices include a list of over 200 completed S/S remediations and over 40 case studies.

Together these two volumes contain over 500 pages, 60 tables, 150 illustrations, and contributions from more than 20 expert practitioners in the world-wide application of S/S.
Stabilisation/Solidification of Contaminated Soil and Waste provides an invaluable reference source for anyone interested in S/S for the remediation of soil and treatment of waste.
