Summary:This edited work presents a comprehensive treatise on the latest progress in the field of selected innovative nanotechnologies, biotechnologies, and their possible combinations for efficient elimination of a broad range of pollutants from various types of water and soil. It covers the underlying principles of all the key technologies (reductive and oxidative technologies for water treatment and biotechnologies for water and soil treatment). Moreover, it includes toxicological evaluation of emerging pollutants and novel engineered nanoparticles, as well as providing results of field-scale verification and application of the most promising technologies. Central aspects covered in this book include: geochemistry of iron, properties of iron nanoparticles (nZVI) and related materials for water treatment, in situ methods for groundwater treatment, evaluation of various combined nano/bio technologies, mechanisms and efficiencies of degradation/dechlorination of chlorinated hydrocarbons (as well as other organic pollutants like POPs, PAHs, etc.), elimination of arsenic and Cr(VI) from water, advanced oxidation processes with a strong focus on high-valent states of iron (ferrates), radical reactions, photooxidation, Fenton reactions, disinfection, and biodegradation including mycoremediation and composting of a wide range of pollutants from water and soil. In addition, technical details of selected strategies adopted for a pilot/full-scale application of key nano-/biotechnologies, i.e. nZVI injection into groundwater, field-scale contaminant monitoring, nanoparticle migration, and microbiological methods for monitoring nZVI performance in groundwater conditions, are presented. Therefore, this multidisciplinary book will be suitable for a broad readership including environmental scientists, practitioners, policymakers, toxicologists, and, of course, students of diverse fields such as materials science, chemistry, biology, geology, hydrogeology, engineering, etc
