The International Journal of Environmental Research and Public Health welcomes submissions for a Special Issue of the journal. This Special Issue will focus on soil pollution and remediation.
Industrialized economies and developing countries are affected by soil pollution originated from mining, industrial activities, an improper disposal of waste and mechanized agriculture. Soil pollution could lead to an impact on crop productivity and human health. Investigating the sources, fate and occurrence of soil pollution and the risks posed to human health has been an important area of research.
There are multiple challenges associated with the remediation of polluted soil and new and innovative techniques have been used for this, including the use of soil amendments, thermal desorption, soil washing, electrokinetic remediation and bioremediation.
This Special Issue welcomes articles on these and other themes relating to soil pollution and remediation.
