There is a need for inexpensive, readily-available and environmentally-friendly soil washing agents to remediate polluted soils. Thus, batch washing experiments were performed to evaluate the feasibility of using a solution of humic substances (HS) extracted from compost as a washing agent for simultaneous removal of Cu, Cd, Zn, Pb and Ni from artificially contaminated soils aged for 1 month, 12 months and 24 months. The efficiency of metal removal in single and multiple washings and kinetic… CONTINUE READING
