In-situ bioremediation of contaminated soils from Rodna mining areas from BistriÈ›a-NÄƒsÄƒud county
AbstractSoil ecosystems contaminated with heavy metals can cause significant damages to the environment and human health due to the mobility and solubility capacity of the contaminants. This research was carried out to set up a suitable bioremediation scheme for cleaning up the soil from the mining sites of AnieÈ™ and Glod Valley from BistriÈ›a-NÄƒsÄƒud county. Based on the investigations that have been made (soil colour, pH, organic content of the soil, plant inventory) phytoremediation seemed to be the most effective and environmentally-friendly method that could be used to neutralize or remove heavy metals from the soil.
