About this book

This book offers extensive and comprehensive knowledge to the researchers and academicians who are working on decontamination of radioactively contaminated areas. Remediation strategies for contaminated sites are provided. Readers who will find this book useful include professionals specializing in radioecology, safe disposal of radioactive waste, as well as decontamination, remediation legacies and impact of radioactive waste material on the environment. The chapters give a broad overview and reviews of a number of original publications on remediation strategies that were explored after the Chernobyl and Fukushima Nuclear Power plant accidents. Useful case studies are provided that explore the latest technological developments and future trends for affected area decontamination.

About the authors

Dharmendra K. Gupta is Sr. Scientist of environmental biotechnology/radioecology and already published more than 80 refereed research papers/review articles in peer reviewed journals and edited eleven books. His field of research includes abiotic stress by radionuclides/heavy metals and xenobiotics in plants; antioxidative system in plants, environmental pollution (radionuclides/heavy metals) remediation through plants (phytoremediation).

Anna Voronina is Head of the Radiochemistry and Applied Ecology Department at the Ural Federal University, Physical Technology Institute, Ekaterinburg, Russia. She published more than 60 papers in peer reviewed journals and 9 textbooks and tutorials for students. Her field of research includes development and study of inorganic sorbents, decontamination of radioactively contaminated soils and natural/drinking waters, liquid radioactive waste treatment, study of radionuclides migration in the environment.
