This text focuses on the legacy of industrial production and pollutants on the contemporary landscape and their influence on new scientific research, innovative site technologies and progressive site design. The author argues that this area of research and development will become increasingly important as diminishing greenfield sites, urban renewal and economic growth will require the reuse and renewal of manufactured sites. This book presents environmental, engineering and design approaches along with ongoing research and built projects of international significance. Topics included are soil bioromediation, phytoremediation brownfield development, structural soil, landfill capping and revegetation and bioengineering for soil and water quality. Approaches to the design of contaminated and including public parks and commercial sites are outlined.
