This new book presents state-of-the-art for treating groundwater contaminated with Petroleum Hydrocarbons, based on CDM's vast experience in treating contaminated groundwater using air stripping, GAC and biorestoration. Design issues and pitfalls to avoid when implementing treatment technologies are explained. Capital costs, operation and maintenance costs, unit costs are presented. Groundwater Remediation and Petroleum is the most comprehensive examination of these technologies and the implications of recent UST regulations. It provides hands-on information in the form of detailed step-by-step design procedures and case studies.
Water - and its governance - is becoming a global concern partly because it is turning into a goods in short supply, with devastating effects on literally billions of people, but also because it is the "carrier" ofglobal warming; whether through irregular weather patterns or through flooding, water is how global warming will be 'felt'. The lion's share of the globally available fresh water resources is to be found in transboundary systems. In spite of its significance, the generated knowledge on how to deal with transboundary waters is weak and leaves policy makers with seemingly unavoidable, trade-off dilemmas and prioritizations, often with detrimental effects. In order to disentangle this predicament this volume works with one case: the Lower Mekong Basin and covers state-of-the-art academic and practitioners' knowledge and hence appeals to a wide audience. The topic this volume addresses is situated in the nexus ofan IR- (International Relations) approach focussing on transboundary politics and its inclination to remain within the sphere of state sovereignty and national interest on the one hand, and Development studies, with its imperatives on participation, planning, and intervention, on the other.The dilemma, we argue, of better understanding transboundary water management lies in how to understand how these two rationalities can be simultaneously nurtured.
