Topic Area Focus: Soil Contamination

Soil contamination, soil pollution, or land pollution as a part of land degradation is caused by the presence of xenobiotic chemicals or other alteration in the natural soil environment. It is typically caused by industrial activity, agricultural chemicals or improper disposal of waste. The most common chemicals involved are petroleum hydrocarbons, polynuclear aromatic hydrocarbons, solvents, pesticides, lead, and other heavy metals.

We invite all scientists and experts performing research in relevant or connected areas to submit manuscripts which focus on the following topics: 

Phytoremediation Vital to Mitigate Human Health Exposure to Heavy Metal Pollution

Global legacy mines create heavy metal waste threatening human life and food security. Sustainable, bio and plant-based remediation methods decrease developing countries’ fossil fuel dependency and adverse health effects. We seek pioneering research in the field of phytoremediation that investigates new plant and bio centered solutions.

Studying Animal and Sediment Mechanical Interaction Assists with Infrastructure Safety Monitoring

Burrowing organisms like earthworms dynamically change their body shape while penetrating particulate soil. Understanding this biological process can inform the creation of underground construction technologies such as robots to stabilize infrastructure security. We’re searching for experimental burrowing animal studies centering on their impact within geotechnical engineering.

Wildfires Can Alter Soil Structure and Surface Chemistry

Changing climates increase wildfire frequency impacting soil erosion, infiltration and runoff. Examining these effects in natural field settings versus laboratories provides essential benefits to forest management and water sustainability. We support probing articles that explore high temperature wildfires’ ramifications on soil properties.

Bioremediation Journal is abstracted/indexed in dozens of environmental sciences abstracting and indexing sources, and is widely recognized by scientists, engineers, professionals, and regulatory experts from the academic, industrial, government, public and private sectors worldwide.

New Technologies Remediate PFAS Contaminated Water

Forever PFAS are notorious for their resistance to standard water treatment processes prompting calls for alternate technologies. These new processes can address urgent concerns of PFA exposure links to cancer and birth defects. We desire high quality papers advancing findings in the area of PFA compound reductions.
