Brought to the public's attention in the film Erin Brokovich, hexavalent chromium is a larger problem than it was once thought to be. The Silicon Valley Toxics Coalition estimates that the 315 million computers expected to become obsolete by the year 2004 would contain among other hazardous wastes, 1.2 million pounds of hexavalent chromium. The high stakes involved in hexavalent chromium-related litigation has increased the demand for authoritative information comprehensively presented in a logical, concise format.Put together by a team of scientists, engineers, regulators, and lawyers, Hexavalent Chromium Handbook consolidates the latest literature on this topic. The broad scope of this book fills the need for a comprehensive resource on hexavalent chromium, improving understanding of this contaminant at a time when the extent and degree of the problem is still being assessed. It addresses naturally occurring and anthropogenic sources, geology and geochemistry, toxicity, treatment, regulatory issues and legal cases, and recommendations. Providing a detailed understanding of the geochemistry controlling the types and distribution of chromium and chromium ions in soils and groundwater, it will aid managers of remedial investigations in scientifically based site assessments. The well-organized and succinct presentation makes it a definitive resource for industrial hygiene/occupational health professionals. Comprehensive and current, Hexavalent Chromium Handbook provides essential information for investigating and remediating the incidence of chromium contamination.
