Deep Injection Disposal of Hazardous and Industrial Waste
Deep Injection Disposal of Hazardous and Industrial Waste is the first text to bring together scientific and engineering aspects of deep well injection techniques in light of increasingly stringent environmental regulation. This text considers important aspects of modern deep well injection, including regulatory matters, the design and construction of injection wells, well testing, hydrologic modeling, and monitoring and predicting interactions of the waste with the rocks into which they are injected. The experiences of experts from many countries provide a global perspective on this environmentally important topic. One of the unique highlights of the book is the presentation of Russian research findings on the deep disposal of high-level liquid radioactive waste.
