In the age of modern technology, where man is busy to manufacture the better product, at the same time, became the cause of increasing pollutant in the atmosphere, water bodies died, and land becomes contaminated. The man who imbalance the stability of the ecosystem is now busy to introduce the remediation action plan. Many steps are taken to control this disaster. We will discuss their possible remedies for the contamination of the environment.
Contaminated Land Assessment:
The first remedy which we should adopt is the contaminated land Assessment. The contaminated land assessment provides the knowledge of how we can control the hazard. Its work on the theory of source-target-pathway. In this pattern, scientists can understand the origin and intensity of the contamination.
Hazardous Chemical Awareness Training:
This category covers many subjects. Hazardous Chemical Awareness Training involves the basic knowledge that if someone faces some chemical hazard in the lab, what would be their precautions and how they can handle the situation? It is natural when someone works in the lab, there is a chance of exposure to any chemical unintentionally. The first is given to the sufferer. If he got exposure in his eyes then flushing water in the eye is mandatory. Hazardous chemical awareness training taught us how we can get first aid without having panic.
Asbestos is a naturally occurring silicate mineral. It is of different varieties and has many advantageous effects in construction but if a little quantity is inhaled or ingested by the human body, it may cause asbestosis and severe lung cancer. Asbestos identification is mandatory while construction work. The asbestos identification may be done by visual pattern (if pallets are larger) or laboratory screening and other identification processes. In a report, it was published that the asbestos extraction, manufacture, and processing in the factories is banned since 2005. The products which used the bonded asbestos within the matrix are of low-risk potential while the asbestos which is loosely attached and only mixes with the ingredient may cause severe health disorders.
Remediation Action Plans:
The authorities of landcontamination assessment and the hazardous chemical awarenesstraining make a report, but their recommendation, and then justified their possible and proper remedial techniques. The remediation action plans are assigned according to the land condition and the chemical content which are present in contaminated land. The remediation action plans are applied in the following situations:
- It is applied to soil bounding and soil capping. In Soil bounding the environmental servers construct the wall around the defective area so that the contamination does not move further. While soil capping includes the situation when1-10 mm upper soil becomes hard and uncultivated.
- It is applied to soil vapour extraction. In this technique, all the contaminants absorbed by the moisture in the soil are removed,
- Remediation Action Plans works on bioremediation.
This gives a plan to screen the soil particles and screened the materials either it is usable or not.
