Abstract

A US-Hungarian research project was recently started with the aim of studying the fate and transport of selected heavy metals applied as wastewaters and sewage sludges in the soil profile of cropped undisturbed soil monoliths. Preliminary experiments were carried out to study the adsorption-desorption processes of these chemicals on disturbed soil samples. Concentrations of Zn, Pb, Cr and Cd in the soil solution were found to decrease with increasing soil moisture content and length of the adsorption period. Lower soil moisture contents increased both the solution concentrations and the adsorbed concentrations of the elements. Release of adsorbed Zn and Cd was higher than that of Pb and Cr. Higher plant-availability of inorganic forms of Ni resulted in a higher phytotoxicity as compared to Ni applied in sewage sludge. -from Authors
