A New Strategy for Heavy Metal Polluted Environments: A

heavy metals in the environment is a serious threat to the health of living organisms. Unlike organic contaminants, heavy metals cannot be broken down by chemical or biological processes. Hence, they can only be transformed into less toxic species. The majorities of heavy metals are toxic at low concentrations and are capable of entering the food

Extraction of Heavy Metals from Soils Using Biodegradable

Dec 23, 2003 · Metal pollution of soils is widespread across the globe, and the clean up of these soils is a difficult task. One possible remediation technique is exsitu soil washing using chelating agents. Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid (EDTA) is a very effective chelating agent for this purpose but has the disadvantage that it is quite persistent in the environment due to its low biodegradability.
