Short description: This paper provides an overview on the field applications of various soil metals remediation technologies performed over the last decade. Under the general categories of physical, chemical, and biological approaches, 10 remediation techniques were critically reviewed. Technical feasibility and economic effectiveness were evaluated, and pros and cons were appraised. The environmental impacts of the remediation practices and long-term stability of the contaminants were discussed and key knowledge gaps and practical challenges identified.
