49116 Contaminated Site & Waste Remediation

There is an increasing need to remediate contaminated sites and manage hazardous wastes. It can be technically challenging due to complex biogeochemical interactions between waste, rocks, water and microbes in response to physical and chemical manipulation. There is a need for remediation practitioners to be able to conceptualise these systems and simulate the processes involved. This subject examines a range of contaminant remediation systems, important geochemical processes and contaminants. An integral part of the subject is the application of geochemical modelling codes to practical remediation problems.
