About this book

Over the long history of former manufactured gas plants (FMGPs) and other coal-tar-producing sites, there were an enormous variety of fuel stocks used as well as many processing and disposal methods, each leading to unique waste and site circumstances.

Remediation of Former Manufactured Gas Plants and Other Coal-tar Sites supplies the historical information needed to understand and accurately predict the transport and fate of contaminants at these sites. Understanding the processes and history of a particular site is absolutely critical to performing site and waste characterization and ultimately to successful remediation.

The second part of Remediation of Former Manufactured Gas Plants and Other Coal-tar Sites covers characterization, selection of remedy, remedial design and construction, and regulatory and legal process.
