Pollution of soils and waters through human actions is a crucial and common challenge. This toxins by means of, natural and inorganic ingredients can impact person organisms, human populations, and ecosystems, every one in its personal special approach. particularly former army installations, frequently used for guns construction and nuclear strength vegetation characterize a ongoing and massive chance to surroundings and human healthiness as a result of the particular toxins that may be published: Solvents, explosives, fuels, radionuclides, heavy metals, and metalloids all were pointed out within the atmosphere round those installations. Remediation applied sciences for those infected websites were built according to traditional structures applying actual and chemical remedies, equivalent to excavation and incineration, pump-and-treat tools, ultraviolet oxidation, soil washing, and so on. those techniques are typically very pricey, and will contain the elimination of huge quantities of soil or water, which regularly ends up in assets depletion and challenge sooner or later utilisation of the positioning. lately, new decontamination ways, in accordance with residing organisms, specifically micro-organisms and vegetation, were researched and constructed as a extra sustainable substitute simply because they've got decrease expenses, lowered environmental affects, and elevated public recognition. improvement of organic decontamination thoughts has been performed in numerous laboratories and study associations all over the world, and useful functions on infected websites were recorded in different international locations. within the united states and Canada a number of advertisement businesses were using those methods for years, along traditional ideas, with nice success:; a great examples are available is within the U. S.

The whole contaminated area was about 2,000m². (Gerth et al. 2005) As a result of the risk assessment, a programme of soil remediation was considered necessary to protect the environment. Figure 1. Crystalline TNT found on a contaminated site. 2. SELECTION OF REMEDIATION METHOD On the basis of the risk assessment, various possible remediation technologies were considered. Excavation of the entire area and off-site incineration was an unacceptably expensive option. For the soil remediation of the former trickling pond, an innovative site-specific strategy was 48 A.

Variability of density of 137Cs ground deposition on experimental plot of Molinio-Pinetum investigated with different step of sampling (sampling step 0,1 m). Note: density of 137Cs ground deposition is done in Ci/km2. , 1997). Among the most important peculiarities of the soils of Ukrainian Polissya (in common with all soils in the Coniferous-Broadleaved forests of the boreal type) is the presence of a substantial layer of forest litter, consisting mainly of pine needles and moss residuals. The decomposition time of such litter material is from six to 12 years, so this layer provides a long-term reservoir of radionuclides.

Introduction Mixed coniferous/broadleaved forest occupies about 70% of the area of the northern part of Ukraine and plays a very important landscape role in the region. This ecosystem is characterized by a great diversity of ecological conditions and variability in its spatial distribution, by a complex biogeochemistry (cycling) of the major nutritional elements and artificial contaminants, including man-made radionuclides (Melin and Wallberg, 1991, Orlov et al.
