In-situ capping of polluted sediment is considered as an inexpensive and effective treatment technology to immobilize contaminants in a short time. In this remediation technique sediments are capped by placing a layer of sand, clean sediment or other materials over sediments in order to mitigate risk. During this talk, I will present a bench scale laboratory experiment performed in aquariums to evaluate the effects of low cost industrial by products (bauxaline, steel slag, and their composite) used as capping agents to limit Cd, Zn, As, and Cr mobility from an artificially contaminated marine sediment.
