Prerequisite
A good fundamental knowledge of soil, its characteristic & use, causes of soil pollution, physico-chemical and biological treatment process along with basic design consideration
Rationale
This subject is intended to make students aware about the basic fundamentals of soil, causes of its pollution and various treatment methods with their basic design aspects.
Course Outcome
On successful completion of this course unit, the student should be able to:
1. Have knowledge on the different sources of soil pollution as well as the different types of pollutants generated by them.
2. To identify the different types of soil decontamination/remediation methods, their application fundamentals and their major advantages and constraints:
I. Constructive techniques versus treatment techniques; In situ versus ex situ techniques;
II. Physical, chemical, solidification/stabilization/immobilization, thermal, and biological techniques.

Active Learning
Preparation of power-point slides, which include videos, animations, pictures, graphics for better understanding theory and practical work – The faculty will allocate chapters/ parts of chapters to groups of students so that the entire syllabus to be covered. The power-point slides should be put up on the web-site of the College/ Institute, along with the names of the students of the group, the name of the faculty, Department and College on the first slide. The best three works should submit to GTU.
