The project documented in Phytoremediation of Hydrocarbon-Contaminated Soil presents innovative technology for environmental cleanup using in situ treatment. It describes the results of a field study focusing on hydrocarbon contamination, especially polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, in surface and near-surface soils." "Phytoremediation of Hydrocarbon-Contaminated Soil supplies quantitative results about the use of vegetation in soil remediation. The information given on the niches and limitations of the technologies allows for a more informed selection of remedial solutions for environmental cleanup."--Jacket.
