Impact of land use change on the migration of historical radionuclide and heavy metal contamination in riparian soils of the Grote Nete Valley KU Leuven
In the Grote Nete Valley, certain riparian areas are contaminated with radionuclides (RN) and heavy metals (HM) originating from historical contamination into the tributaries Grote Laak and Molse Nete, which occurred until the 1980’s. Currently the radiological, environmental and health risks of this soil contamination are negligible, but recent plans were proposed to change the land use of these contaminated areas (Sigmaplan). In particular, ...
Risk based soil reclamation in the Kempen through the reduction of the mobility and bioavailability of heavy metals in the soil Ghent University
In-situ immobilization of metals, with the aid of metal immobilized soil additives, is a potential strategy for remediation of metal-contaminated soils. Various mechanisms such as sorption, and (co) precipitation reactions, induced by the addition of an additive to the ground, can cause a reduction of the bioavailability of metal and so are the risks associated with contamination. Mainly for large-scale diffusion of impurities, as in the ...
