Immobilization of potentially toxic elements (PTE) by mineral-based amendments: Remediation of contaminated soils in post-industrial sites
(MDPI AG, 2020)
In many post-industrial sites, the high contents and high mobility of different potentially toxic elements (PTEs) make the soils unsuitable for effective management and use. Therefore, immobilization of PTE seems to be the ...
Successful outcome of phytostabilization in Cr(VI) contaminated soils amended with alkalizing additives
(MDPI AG, 2020)
This study analysed the effect of three alkalizing soil amendments (limestone, dolomite chalcedonite) on aided phytostabilization with Festuca rubra L. depending on the hexavalent chromium (Cr(VI)) level in contaminated ...
Application of mineral-based amendments for enhancing phytostabilization in lolium perenne L. cultivation
An experimental investigation is conducted to explore the suitability of Lolium perenne L., diatomite, chalcedonite, dolomite, and limestone for the phytostabilization of Ni and Cu in contaminated soil. A controlled ...
Concept of aided phytostabilization of contaminated soils in postindustrial areas
The experiment was carried out in order to evaluate the effects of trace element immobilizing soil amendments, i.e., chalcedonite, dolomite, halloysite, and diatomite on the chemical characteristics of soil contaminated ...
Potential of using immobilizing agents in aided phytostabilization on simulated contamination of soil with lead
(Elsevier Science BV, 2017)
Lead (Pb) is one of the key heavy metals which have a significant influence on the individual components of the natural environment. A glasshouse pot experiment was designed to evaluate the potential use of different ...
Silver nanoparticles (AgNPs) in urea solution in laboratory tests and field experiments with crops and vegetables
Nanotechnology and nanomaterials, including silver nanoparticles (AgNPs), are increas-ingly important in modern science, economics, and agriculture. Their biological activity involvesinfluencing plant health, physiological ...
