Remediation of contaminated soil using soil washing-a review

  title={Remediation of contaminated soil using soil washing-a review},
  author={N. Karthika and K. Jananee and Vanitha Murugaiyan},
Pb, Zn, Ni, Cu, Mn and Cd are heavy metals occur naturally as trace elements in many soils. The present paper reviews the remediation of heavy metals of contaminated soil by soil washing using different agents. It was noted that the contact time, pH, concentration of extract ant and agitation speed were affected the process while remediation, so accordingly select the conditions to obtain efficiency which is mainly depend upon the type of soil, contaminationtype, contamination period and metals…
