A treatability test of phytostabilization was carried out on two soils sampled downstream a mining Italian area with Lolium italicum and Festuca arundinacea. Beside chemical content of Pb and Zn in aerial parts and in roots, also some physical parameters were determined at the end of the growth cycle of plants. Particle size distribution was analysed with a laser granulometer while cracking patterns and porosity were determined by means of image analysis. Compost, used at two rates (10%, and 30… CONTINUE READING
