REMEDIATION TECHNOLOGIES FOR HEAVY METALS CONTAMINATED SOIL

REMEDIATION TECHNOLOGIES FOR HEAVY METALS CONTAMINATED SOIL

Abstract

ABSTRACT
Mining, manufacturing, and the use of synthetic products (e.g. pesticides, paints,
batteries, industrial waste, and land application of industrial or domestic sludge) can result in
heavy metal contamination of urban and agricultural soils. The environmental safety of soil
has become severe with the boost of industrialization and urbanization. In this paper, on the
basis of investigating the status of soil contamination, the remediation technologies of soil
contaminated by heavy metals, including physical remediation, chemical remediation and
biological remediation were focused. The mechanisms of remediation, strengths and
drawbacks, developing trend were reviewed in order to supply reference to the study in this
field.
