Restoring Contaminated Soil

Posted February 06, 2013 9:53 AM

From Phys.org - latest science and technology news stories:

Land contaminated with substances in or under the land can be potentially hazardous to health or the environment. However, in many cases there is minimal risk from living or working on contaminated ground and many c sites have been successfully and safely redeveloped to provide high quality housing and working environments. However, in a few cases some sites are so contaminated they present a risk to human health or the environment. Exposure to contaminants can be through inhalation of dust or gases, contact with soil, or through food grown on the land. Leachates (pollutants draining from the site in liquid form) can pollute groundwater and rivers or ponds.

Re: Restoring Contaminated Soil

The project demonstrates an in-situ remediation through an innovative technological perspective, which takes into account the physical properties and the biogeochemical reactivity of the soil as well as the contaminants.

I still cannot figure out what they are actually doing after reading the article.

After looking at the website I am guessing they are looking into and documenting different methods but have nothing new of their own.
