The Reconstituited Soils: The Technology and Its Possible Implementation in the Remediation of Contaminated Soils

Paolo Adriano Manfredi

Abstract


Reconstitution technology is a pedotechnique whose action supplements soil structure with organic and mineral components that are quality and origin certified. The treatment procedure performs a mechanical action which forms an organic matter lining within the mineral fraction by means of soil structure disintegration and subsequent reconstitution. Results produced by the technology in the field of agronomy suggest that such method may be employed to remediate contaminated soil by altering its properties according to need.

Keywords
