This report provides an overview of remediation technologies that are particularly suited to the remediation of dispersed contamination. Dispersed low level contamination poses a particular challenge. Many techniques are not efficient below certain concentration thresholds or entail more severe impacts on certain environmental compartments than the contamination itself. The technologies are outlined in brief, and their advantages and limitations are discussed. The need for a holistic design of the remedial action is stressed.
