- ... Re-vegetation is the main aim of ecological restoration projects, where the use of native plants is recommended over exogenous species, which may result in an undesirable modification of the ecosystem. A 10-year phytoremediation programme was carried out in a site affected by the toxic spill of pyritic (iron sulphide) residue at Aznalcóllar (Spain) in 1998, contaminated with heavy metals (Cd, Cu, ...

- ... Reclamation of trace element polluted soils often requires the improvement of the soil quality by using appropriate organic amendments. Low quality compost from municipal solid waste has been tested for reclamation of soils, but these materials can provide high amounts of heavy metals. Therefore, a high-quality compost, with low levels of heavy metals, produced from the main by-product of the Span ...

- ... This work focuses on the viability of composting for the recycling of digestates, to obtain added-value organic materials with potential use in agriculture. Mixtures made from the solid fraction of a digestate (obtained from the anaerobic co-digestion of cattle slurry and silage), with or without vine shoot prunings as bulking agent, were composted by the Rutgers composting system. During composti ...
