Remediation
Environmental Geotechnics has been an established branch of Geotechnical Engineering for about 40 years. The contribution from Brazilian practitioners and researchers is meaningful in the many activities in this field. This paper proposes to discuss three topics of relevance to modern sustainability in Brazil, in which Geotechnicians could have an even greater i...

The combination of the lignocellulosic residue sugarcane bagasse and poultry litter as carbon and nutrients sources, respectively, in organic permeable reactive barriers for remediation of metal laden acid mine drainage has not yet been extensively tested and may be promising based on chemical composition. This system is being tested in the laboratory by means o...

This paper addresses the effect of cadmium incubation time on the electroosmotic decontamination of three residual soils from the Zona da Mata Norte, Minas Gerais State, Brazil. The laboratory testing program included the following: (i) materials, encompassing a lateritic clayey silty sand (soil 1), a non-lateritic clayey silty sand (soil 2), and a non-lateri...
