In-Situ Stabilization of Arsenic-Contaminated Soil Using Industrial By-Products

  title={In-Situ Stabilization of Arsenic-Contaminated Soil Using Industrial By-Products},
  author={Leea Sang-Hwan and Jeong-gyu Kim},
Contamination of terrestrial ecosystems by arsenic (As) and heavy metals is a very sensitive environmental issue due to its adverse impact on human health. Tests were conducted on the effects of amendments (limestone, red mud, and furnace slag) on the extractability of As and heavy metal contaminants, on microbial activities, and on phytoavailability of trace elements (assessed using lettuce, Lactuca sativa L.). The application of soil amendments significantly decreased the amount of… CONTINUE READING
