[CEST2019_00646] Interactions between rhizosphere microorganisms and spontaneous plant species inhabiting smelter wastelands
by Siebielec S., Siebielec G., Sugier P., Stuczynski T.

The role of microorganisms in colonizing toxic smelter waste deposits by plants has not been sufficiently understood. The aim of the work was to assess interactions between microorganisms and most frequent spontaneous plants inhabiting two waste deposits in Piekary, Poland. The samples were collected in the summer of 2018 from rhizosphere of 8 plant species inhabiting the waste pile: 1. Thymus serpyllum; 2. Silene vulgaris; 3. Solidago virgaurea; 4. Echium vulgare; 5. Rumex acetosa; 6. Verbascum thapsus; 7. Solidago gigantea; 8. Eupatorium cannabinum.

[CEST2019_00930] Applications of Remote Sensing in Remediation of Contaminated Water and Soil
by Butu M., Rodino S.

This paper reviews the use of remote sensing for practical applications in remediation of contaminated water and soil. Due to their flexibility of use, the Unmanned Aerial Vehicles open interesting new prospects in the management of remediation of contaminated water and soil regarding various aspects such as sources of contamination, spatial dimension of contamination, level of contamination.

[CEST2019_00182] The Characteristics of Soil Contamination in Industrial Complex in Korea
by Hyo-Jeong Lee, Jeong-Ho Choi, Won-Wook Kwun, Sang-Yeop Lee, Gwan-Ju Jung

It is expected that the possibility of soil contamination will be high as industrial complex will be treated with many harmful chemicals during industrial activities. Therefore, the Korea Environment Corporation has been conducting a detailed survey of Korea’s industrial complex since 2004.
There are about 1,193 industrial complexes in Korea. A total of 60 industrial complexes, 6,201 business companies, were surveyed between 2004 and 2018. Among them, 347 companies exceeded the standard for soil contamination, with a rate of about 5.5 percent.

[CEST2019_00480] Modeling the spatial evolution of nitrogen pollution in groundwater and the amount of nitrogen leached under potato crops in the Khemis Miliana Plain
by Richa A., Touil S., Djezzar M., Douaoui A.

The maximum concentration of nitrate in drinking water admitted by the World Health Organization is 50 mg/l. Europe recommends a standard content of 25 mg NO3-/l according to the interdisciplinary research program on the environment. The present work quantifies spatially the evolution of this pollution and determines and estimates the influence of agricultural practices "calendars of irrigation and fertilization" on the quantity of nitrates leached under the potato crops towards the groundwater of the Khemis-Miliana plain usin Pilote N model.

[CEST2019_00409] Combining phytoremediation with bioenergy production: Developing a multi-criteria decision matrix for species selection
by Amabogha O.N., Purchase D., Garelick H., Jones H.

Plant species required for both phytoremediation and bioenergy generation needs to satisfy certain important criteria such as translocation index, metal and drought tolerance, fast growth rate, high lignocellulosic content, good biomass production, adequate calorific value, and a good rooting system. It is therefore necessary to develop a set of comprehensive selection criteria to select the most appropriate plant species suited to attaining desired outcomes. In this study, we used a systematic review approach to develop a multicriteria decision matrix for species selection.
