BOCA RATON, Fla., April 18, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- CRC Press announces the publication of Remediation Engineering: Design Concepts, Second Edition co-authored by the late Dr. Suthan S. Suthersan and colleagues, John Horst, Matthew Schnobrich, Nicklaus Welty, and Jeff McDonough. Two decades ago, contaminated groundwater supplies were addressed by containing football field-sized areas and spending years excavating, injecting molasses as a bio-agent, or pumping millions of gallons of water through a filter. It was costly, resource-consuming and slow. Now, 20 years later, spurred by the fundamental advancements that have taken place in the remediation engineering field during the last two decades, Dr. Suthersan set out to, once again, change the industry with the release of this second edition of his groundbreaking book Remediation Engineering: Design Concepts. The latest edition covers the entire spectrum of current technologies that are employed in the industry, while discussing future trends and how practitioners should anticipate and adapt to those needs. “The focus is always on completing remediation activities in a more cost-effective and timely manner. The challenge has consistently been to find new technologies to meet the changing landscape of new waves of contaminants and constantly evolving regulatory standards,” explained Dr. Suthersan. “Advanced, practical, state-of-the-science concepts are presented on remediation hydraulics, smart investigations, digital conceptual site models, reagent delivery mechanisms, remediation geochemistry and combined remedies. I believe this second edition will guide engineers, scientists, regulators, students, and researchers as we look forward to the next 20 years of remediation developments.” Prior to his passing, Dr. Suthan S. Suthersan was chief technical officer and executive vice president at Arcadis, the leading global design and consultancy firm for natural and built assets. With more than 35 years of experience and participation in hundreds of environmental remediation projects worldwide, he became known as a leading expert in the remediation engineering field. Co-authors of the book include Arcadis-employed, globally-recognized industry experts, John Horst, (PE), executive director of technical knowledge and innovation; Matthew R. Schnobrich, technical expert and associate vice president; Nicklaus Welty, (PG, CPG), director of site investigation, and Jeff McDonough, (PE), principal engineer.

The overall objective of the ELASSTIC project is to improve the security and resilience of large scale multifunctional building complexes to natural and man-made disasters by providing a methodology and tools which enable to include security and resilience from the early design and planning phase of such projects. The ELASSTIC concept proposed is based upon the following key features: 1) A comprehensive approach for designing safe, secure and resilient large scale built infrastructures 2) A set of tools to enable architects, structural engineers and building installation engineers to assess the safety, security and resilience of designs and to optimize the integral design 3) Coupling and integration of these tools into Building Information Modelling (BIM) technology resulting in extended BIM technology (BIM\) 4) Smart and reinforced building elements, to measure the actual building condition combined with an increased bearing capacity and resistance 5) Coupling and integration of BIM and BMS (Building Management System) 6) Real time information on the safety, security and resilience of infrastructure Validation of the approach and developed tools will be done by evaluation the design of a multifunctional, resilient, large scale urban complex (anno 2020), called the ELASSTIC complex. This large multifunctional complex combines housing, shopping centre, transport node, business centre and entertainment centre. The ELASSTIC complex will not only be secure and resilient to disasters, it will also be designed to ensure fast and efficient evacuation in case of a disaster. For a crowded complex comprising a large number of people, the design of a smart evacuation system should be included at the start of the design of the complex. Taking evacuation and safety installations into account in the design phase will increase safety and is less expensive compared to an evacuation system integrated after the complex is build or at the final design stage.

Thousands of sites across Europe are polluted with toxic metals and organic solvents; many more exist worldwide. As EU population grows, clean water will determine the quality of life and economic stability. Most sites remain contaminated because existing technology is costly and disruptive. Society needs an innovative way to decontaminate soil and groundwater directly underground. In METAL-AID, we will develop new technologies through fundamental knowledge. We are a consortium of experts in natural materials, contaminant reactivity, groundwater treatment and environment policy, spread over 4 consulting firms, 6 universities and a government agency. We will train 14 early stage researchers (ESRs) through integrated, intersectoral research, using advanced technology, ranging from nanometre to field scale. ESRs will gain technical, business and personal skills, as they push a promising soil and groundwater remediation technology toward commercialisation. To meet the METAL-AID goals, the ESRs will: 1) Test known layered double hydroxide (LDH) and redox active green rust (GR) reactants that show promise for remediating toxic metals and chlorinated compounds and invent new ones; 2) Derive thermodynamic and kinetic data, essential for safety assessment modelling; 3) Quantify reactant effectiveness and reacted phase stability and compare these with natural analogues; 4) Inject the new reactants at field sites operated by our beneficiaries. METAL-AID begins at technology readiness level, TRL 1 and runs to TRL 6, implementation. The government agency will provide guidance so our new technology complies with regulations and has promised R&D funding after the ETN ends, to carry it into full commercialisation. The ESRs will be trained to tackle challenges of concern to society, to communicate across sector boundaries and with the public, in a network that will last long after the project ends. We will provide a pool of scientists for roles in EUs knowledge based economy.

Coastal areas are the most productive and economically dominant regions of the world. The high water demand in these regions, however, puts tremendous pressure on their freshwater resources and ecosystems. This leads to problems like seasonal water shortage, saltwater intrusion, and disappearance of wetlands. Building on national, regional and European research and innovation programs, in the past five years, a set of innovative, practical concepts have been developed for protection, enlargement and utilization of freshwater resources in coastal areas. These subsurface water solutions (SWS) combine innovations in water well design and configuration, allowing for advanced groundwater management, and maximum control over freshwater resources. SWS have been successfully piloted by public-private partnerships. These full-scale pilots have demonstrated SWS capacity to support sustainable freshwater supply in coastal areas, energy reduction, food production, and financial savings. SUBSOL targets a market breakthrough of SWS as robust answers to freshwater resources challenges in coastal areas, by demonstration, market replication, standardization and commercialisation. The route to market includes business cases, market scans and capacity building in selected regions in Europe (Mediterranean, Northwestern Europe) and worldwide (USA, Brazil, China, Vietnam). SUBSOL will share experiences and outcomes with stakeholder groups through an online platform, that will be linked to existing networks, including EIP on Water. The SUBSOL consortium combines knowledge providers, technology SMEs, consultants, and end-users from across Europe. Our ambition is to introduce a new way of thinking in terms of water resources management, promoting the sustainable development of coastal areas worldwide. This will stimulate economic growth and will create market opportunities and jobs for the European industry and SMEs.

With most of its population and capital goods concentrated in urban areas, cities are key to the European economy. One of the major challenges cities face are more frequent extreme weather events due to climate change.The current diversity of approaches and methods available for cities developing an adaptation strategy limits the comparability between cities of vulnerabilities, adaptation options, infrastructures, etc., and, as a result, the resilience capability. The lack of standardized information to prioritize and select appropriate adaptation options restricts the exchange of experiences between cities. The objective of RESIN is to provide standardised methodologies for vulnerability assessments, performance evaluations of adaptation measures, and for decision support tools supporting the development of robust adaptation strategies tailored to the city. To this end, RESIN aims to create a common unifying framework that allows comparing strategies, results and identification of best practices by Creating an urban typology that characterises European cities based on different socio-economic and biophysical variables Delivering standardised methods for assessing climate change impacts, vulnerabilities, and risks; providing an inventory of adaptation measures and developing standardised methods to assess the performance of such adaptation measures Collaborating closely with 4 case cities for practical applicability and reproducibility, and with European Standardisation organisations to ensure a systematic (standardised) implementation Integrating findings in a coherent framework for the decision making process, with associated methods, tools and datasets The consortium consists of 17 partners from 8 different European countries, experienced in urban resilience and climate change, and combining theory (knowledge institutes/universities) with practice (cities, consultancies, network organisation, standardisation institute).
