This type of pollution is a concern because it poses risks to human health and to the ecosystem. More than this, such areas may not be used for new development, requiring solutions for remediation.  ...  The past human activities, mainly that related to industrial development caused in many cases a strong contamination of soil, subsoil environment and of groundwater.  ...  In principle, the data obtained should ensure an adequate risk assessment, in order to allow the identification and establishment of the potential and the optimal solution for remediation (Fig. 3) .  ...
