Soil and Water Pollution Process and Remediation Technologies
Since the twentieth century, large amounts of toxic organic and inorganic pollutants were released to pedosphere, hydrosphere, and biosphere from irrational anthropogenic socioeconomic activities, resulting in serious hazards to ecological environment and public health. Particularly, a large amount of pollutants were emitted into soil and water, causing extremely threats to food supply and water safety. Nevertheless, the pollutants source apportionment, migration, transformation of contaminants in soil and water are not well understood and security utilization of the polluted soil and water requires proper remediation technology.
At present, the remediation of polluted soil and water is upon on the degree of environmental risk. The first and foremost issue of carrying out environmental remediation is to clarify the source apportionment and migration route of pollutants. Through various physical, chemical, and biological remediation technologies, the polluted soil and water can be reused as agricultural land, construction land, domestic water, industrial water and etc. Meanwhile, the quality transformation of soil and water before and after remediation and its microbiological mechanism have received little attention. Therefore, it is urgent to seek novel remediation technologies and study how to reuse the natural resources.
Herein, the toxic pollutants in this Topic “Soil and water pollution process and remediation technologies” focuses on the heavy metals, excess nutrient elements, pesticides, antibiotics, environmental hormones, antibiotics resistance genes, pathogens, microplastics, microbial communities and etc. We are pleased to invite you to contribute a manuscript to this Topic in the Journals International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health (IJERPH), Water, Agronomy, Environments, Pollutants. Contributors are welcome to submit reviews and original research articles, including but not limited to the following topics:
- The source apportionment, pollution process, migration, transformation, and environmental risk of inorganic and organic pollutants in soil and water.
- Remediation technologies of the polluted soil and water.
- Environmental quality transformation and microbiological remedying mechanism in the polluted soil and water.
We are looking forward to receiving your contributions.
