  • Plants are continuously affected by a variety of environmental factors. Whereas biotic environmental factors are other organisms such as symbionts, parasites, pathogens, herbivores, and competitors, abiotic factors include parameters and resources which determine plant growth like temperature, relative humidity, light, availability of water, mineral nutrients, and CO 2 , as well as wind, ionizing radiation, or pollutants (Schulze et al. 2002 ) . The effect each abiotic factor has on the plant depends on its quantity or intensity.

  • There is a commonly held myth in our society that anything that is “natural” is good, wholesome, and healthful, whereas anything that is “synthetic” is bad, toxic, and harmful. The mere mention of the word chemical is enough to strike terror into the heart of any food faddist. This attitude is, at best, naïve and, at worst, dangerous.

  • On average, one ton of hazardous waste per person is generated annually by industries in the United States. Before the Resource Conservation and Recovery Act of 1984, hazardous wastes were improperly disposed of into the environment without any regulation. As a result, remediation of these contaminated sites and management of the ongoing hazardous waste sources are two major tasks to be achieved by treatment technologies.

  • The past century has seen a tremendous expansion in the number of synthetic chemicals employed by humankind as materials, drugs, preservatives for foods and other products, pesticides, cleaning agents, and even weapons of war. An estimated 64,000 chemicals are currently in use commercially, with 5 billion tons being produced annually in the world. Some 4000 chemicals are used as medicinals and at least 1200 more as household products. An estimated 700 new chemicals are synthesized each year.

  • Significant advances in subsurface containment technology occurred in the 1990s, both with the improvement of the technology and the broader acceptance and applications as a measure for environmental remediation. Since 1995, the U.S. Department of Energy (USDOE), U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA), and DuPont have collaborated on a series of organized efforts to advance this technology. In that year, these collaborators sponsored an international expert workshop that led to the publication of the first major book on containment technology.

  • In the early 1970s, the United States government identified and became wary of hazardous materials in soil, surface water, groundwater, and building structures. Most of these contaminants resulted from the evolution of technology without the benefit of chemical regulatory controls. The cost for cleanup of such sites was projected to exceed a trillion dollars, the burden of which was to be borne by the taxpayer and responsible parties. The term “responsible party” is a broad term but, in the final analysis, a responsible party is usually a property owner....

  • In simplified diagrammatic fashion, Figure 1.2 illustrates the approximate chronological succession of environmental hazards, as societies undergo eco- nomic growth and consequent increases in the scale of human activity and envi- ronmental impact (4). Historically, on a local scale, category A hazards have predominated. In the early years of the industrial revolution in Europe much of the environmental hazard was at household and neighbourhood level.
