This manual of practice brings together the collective experience of leading practitioners in the design and execution of remedial actions employing S/S.

This manual presents the state of the art in the application of S/S for the remediation of contaminated land and treatment of waste.

The information presented is, to the contributing editors` knowledge, not available in any single document anywhere at the current time.

The simple structure of this manual is designed to inform the reader on the background of S/S, and then to the site assessment of risk, the design and selection of binders and the choice of equipment, to field-execution and product quality control/assurance, and finally to capping and post-remedial management of sites that have been treated using S/S.

It is intended that this manual will provide an accessible reference source for the planning and execution of S/S under most circumstances, and includes an inventory of over 200 completed S/S operations in the USA and elsewhere, and more than 40 detailed case studies where S/S has been successfully used to treat both organic and inorganic contaminated materials.

Each section of this manual has encapsulated the world experience of recognised experts in his/her particular expertise. However, it should be noted that the subject
material presented here represents the considered views of the authors and should not be taken to necessarily represent the views of the author’s employer, or any government or private organisation, or of the other contributors to this work.
