Soil remediation with amino acids – heavy metal fixation

The project partners investigated the mobility of heavy metals in contaminated soils following the addition of an amino acid solution. The solution is obtained by hydrolyzing various organic matter, such as offal, animal by products, leather or feathers. The mixture is genotoxically safe and considered environmentally benign since it is organic in nature.
