Stabilisation/Solidification of Contaminated Soil and Waste comprises 2 handbooks designed to provide students, practitioners, site owners, and regulators with authoritative guidance to the science underpinning this versatile remedial technology, and how it is applied in real-world situations.

Stabilisation/Solidification (S/S) uses readily available cementitious binders to turn contaminated soil and waste into a rock-like product that reduces the risk to public health and the environment. S/S has been employed at hundreds of sites in the USA, Canada, and Europe to improve the physical and/or chemical properties of contaminated soil and waste to enable development to take place or to safely manage a source of pollution.

Practice: describes how S/S is designed and implemented, including discussions on risk reduction, the development of performance specifications, available binders, treatability studies, in-situ and ex-situ equipment/operations, quality assurance, capping, site closure including long term monitoring strategies. The extensive appendices include a list of over 200 completed S/S remediations and over 40 case studies.
