Abstract: Inadequate waste management from the lead-acid battery recycling (LABR) industry can severely pollute the soil. This work aimed to assess heavy metal contamination of a defunct LABR site in Mexico. Total, DTPA-extractable, water-soluble metal concentrations and soil fractionation were analyzed. Speciation of Na and Pb was calculated by Geochemist's workbench 10 Software package based on soil solution analysis.

Abstract: The potential and explored lengths of the shafts of the Bakony Region were studied. Shaft patterns were distinguished with the help of shaft maps and potential shaft lengths were calculated considering preforming geological structures and the thickness of the vadose zone. The average depth and average specific length of the explored shaft lengths were calculated in some areas of the Bakony Region.

Abstract: Soil pollution is majorly caused by human activities (viz: Agricultural practices, industrial activities and poor waste management) and natural effects such as flooding, acid rain, weathering processes. Soil pollution often cause soil barrenness, offensive odour etc. The resultant effect could impact on soil, air and water quality as well as human that reside or work close to the polluted area over a period of time depending on the physical nature of the pollutant as well as its concentration.
