Reducing available amounts of heavy metals in contaminated soils by adding iron oxides. Final report; Verringerung der Bioverfuegbarkeit von Schwermetallen in kontaminierten Boeden durch Zugabe von Eisenoxiden. Abschlussbericht

Abstract

This project was part of a German-French research co-operation and investigated the practicability to immobilize heavy metals by adding iron oxides to contaminated soils (harbour sediment, bracky marsh contaminated by emission of a zinc/lead smelter, alluvial Gley soil contaminated by mining activity). Pot and field trials were carried out using three different soils. Five iron bearing materials were added to the soil (1% pure Fe in soil dry matter): Red mud from Al-industry, Fe-precipitation sludge from drinking water treatment, bog iron ore, unused steel shot and steel shot waste from surface treatment of rolled steel plates. When mixed with the soil NH{sub 4}NO{sub 3} and DTPA extractable amounts of heavy metals and uptake by plants was markedly reduced. It was demonstrated that precipitated Fe-bearing sludge from drinking water treatment was a very effective material reducing the NH{sub 4}NO{sub 3} soluble amounts by 40-50% (DTPA 30-40%) in the pot tests while the uptake by plants was reduced by 40% and more. Heavy metals were strongly bound in a fixed order Cd>Pb>Zn>Cu and stayed immobilized until the end of project. Heavy metals were immobilized to a certain extent in field trials, but less effect was observed on concentration in plants and soil  More>>

Heavy metals were strongly bound in a fixed order Cd>Pb>Zn>Cu and stayed immobilized until the end of project. Heavy metals were immobilized to a certain extent in field trials, but less effect was observed on concentration in plants and soil extracts compared with the pot tests. In practice the treatment should exceed the 1% pure Fe tested and the application should more homogeneously affect the soil layer where the plant roots mainly grow. (orig.) [Deutsch] Im Rahmen eines deutsch-franzoesischen Projektverbundes wurde die Moeglichkeit der Immobilisierung von Schwermetallen in kontaminierten Boeden durch gezielte Zufuhr von Eisenoxiden untersucht. Die praxisorientierten Untersuchungen wurden in Gefaess- und Feldversuchen mit drei unterschiedlichen Boeden (Spuelfeldboden aus Hafenschlick, immissionsbelastete Brackmarsch, durch Bergbau belasteter Auenboden) ausgefuehrt. Dazu wurden fuenf eisen(oxid)haltige Materialien (Rotschlamm aus der Al-Industrie, Wasserwerksschlamm aus der Trinkwasseraufbereitung, Raseneisenstein als natuerliches Fe-Oxid, Eisenkugelschrot, ein Produkt zur Oberflaechenbehandlung und Strahlmittelabfall aus der Entzunderung von Stahlblechen) in einer Aufwandmenge von 1% rein Fe pro kg Boden eingebracht. Die Schwermetallgehalte in den Bodenextrakten (DTPA, NH{sub 4}NO{sub 3}) und in den Pflanzen gingen im Gefaessversuch durch die Bodenzusaetze deutlich zurueck und wurden durch die wirksamsten Varianten, insbesondere Wasserwerksschlamm um 40-50% (NH{sub 4}NO{sub 3}) 30-40% (DTPA) bzw. 30-40% in den Pflanzen vermindert. Die ueber den Versuchszeitraum andauernde Festlegung der Schwermetalle erfolgte in der Reihenfolge Cd>Pb>Zn>Cu. In den Feldversuchen war die immobilisierende Wirkung der Bodenzusaetze zwar vorhanden, aber wesentlich schwaecher ausgepraegt als in den Gefaessversuchen. Fuer bessere Ergebnisse sollte hier eine tiefere und homogenere Einarbeitung der Bodenzusaetze bei eventuell erhoehten Aufwandmengen erfolgen. (orig.)}
