About this topic
Soil remediation is the process of removing polluted or contaminated soil, sediment, surface water, or groundwater, to reduce the impact on people or the environment. A polluted site can have a serious impact on human health, water supplies, eco-systems and even on building structures, which is why there are different ways now in place to deal with issue.
Remediation is a fundamental consideration with the redevelopment of derelict brownfield sites where, under the Planning regime, the change of land use from industrial to residential will require assessment of contamination and validated site clean up.
Manuscripts should be submitted online at http://www.lidsen.com/account-login by registering and logging in to this website. Once you are registered, click here to go to the submission form. Manuscripts can be submitted until the deadline. Papers will be published continuously (as soon as accepted) and will be listed together on the special issue website. Research articles, review articles as well as communications are invited. For planned papers, a title and short abstract (about 100 words) can be sent to the Editorial Office for announcement on this website. Submitted manuscripts should not have been published previously, nor be under consideration for publication elsewhere (except conference proceedings papers). All manuscripts are refereed through a peer-review process. Guidelines for authors and other relevant information for submission of manuscripts are available on the Instructions for Authors page. Recent Progress in Materials is an international peer-reviewed Open Access monthly journal published by LIDSEN. Please visit the Instructions for Authors page before submitting a manuscript.
