Combined and Sustainable Techniques in Remediation of POPs-Contaminated Soil Sites

This publication appeared in the book ‘Rhizobiont in Bioremediation of Hazardous Waste’. It looks at the massive challenges that modern environmental technologies face in dealing with persistent organic pollutants (POPs). 

The storage and disposal of POPs is now strictly controlled in most countries. However, sustainable techniques for POPs disposal are still lacking. Here we are going to raise a discussion on new approaches in hazardous waste management. Moreover, it is appropriate to discuss what is meant by the modern “POPs” concept. It is obvious that POPs comprehension has widened significantly from the times this group of substances was first determined by the Stockholm convention. Now the modern understanding of contaminant persistency requires new determinations and, therefore, new treatment approaches.
