ENERGETIC PLANTATIONS - POTENTIAL SOLUTION FOR EXPLOITATION OF FORMER INDUSTRIAL SITES

Melania Nicoleta Boros, V. Micle

Abstract


Contaminated sites with heavy metals are very common in the case of former industrial sites. These areas should not be neglected, but converted for the community benefit. To treat the soil pollution problem, one of the green remediation technologies that can be applied is phytoremediation. Because of the large areas that industrial zones usually occupy, other remediation measures become too expensive. If phytoremediation is combined with biomass production, the entire area can become a source of energy and a successful integration of a former industrial area. In addition, landscape architecture can be an asset in the design and redevelopment of the area that can increase the value of the studied areas. This will change the public perception and improve it economically, socially and aesthetically. The aim of this study is to analyze the possibilities of polluted areas exploitation using energetic plantation with a double function: energy producers and mean of soil treatment.
