'Remediation Engineering: Design Concepts, Second Edition' Explores Future of Environmental Remediation

New Edition Analyzes Evolution of Remediation Technologies

Boca Raton, Fla. - CRC Press announces the publication of Remediation Engineering: Design Concepts, Second Edition co-authored by the late Dr. Suthan S. Suthersan and colleagues, John Horst, Matthew Schnobrich, Nicklaus Welty, and Jeff McDonough.

Two decades ago, contaminated groundwater supplies were addressed by containing football field-sized areas and spending years excavating, injecting molasses as a bio-agent, or pumping millions of gallons of water through a filter. It was costly, resource-consuming and slow.

Spurred by the fundamental advancements that have taken place in the remediation engineering field during the last two decades, Dr. Suthersan set out to, once again, change the industry with the release of this second edition of his groundbreaking book Remediation Engineering: Design Concepts. The latest edition covers the entire spectrum of current technologies that are employed in the industry, while discussing future trends and how practitioners should anticipate and adapt to those needs.

“The focus is always on completing remediation activities in a more cost-effective and timely manner. The challenge has consistently been to find new technologies to meet the changing landscape of new waves of contaminants and constantly evolving regulatory standards,” explained Dr. Suthersan. “Advanced, practical, state-of-the-science concepts are presented on remediation hydraulics, smart investigations, digital conceptual site models, reagent delivery mechanisms, remediation geochemistry and combined remedies. I believe this second edition will guide engineers, scientists, regulators, students, and researchers as we look forward to the next 20 years of remediation developments.”

Prior to his passing, Dr. Suthan S. Suthersan was chief technical officer and executive vice president at Arcadis, the leading global design and consultancy firm for natural and built assets. With more than 35 years of experience and participation in hundreds of environmental remediation projects worldwide, he became known as a leading expert in the remediation engineering field. Co-authors of the book include Arcadis-employed, globally-recognized industry experts, John Horst, (PE), executive director of technical knowledge and innovation; Matthew R. Schnobrich, technical expert and associate vice president; Nicklaus Welty, (PG, CPG), director of site investigation, and Jeff McDonough, (PE), principal engineer.
