AbstractEurope soil degradation due to contamination represents an increasing hazard that requires the development of improved methods for soil remediation. In Spain, the new legal frames, mainly at regional level, provides for assessments of the environmental impact of a number of activities and projects, including those of regeneration of the contaminated sites. In this sense, a Research Consortium EIADES has been constituted recently in the Region of Madrid. The Program EIADES is implemented by groups from eight research organisms including, three National and one Regional Institutes, and four Universities. A methodology to assess the environmental impact of industrial activities on soils and of the remediation projects themselves according to the risk analysis techniques applying last generation scientific development (PRA Probabilistic Risk Assessment, Biotech-DTA, biotechnology-based –Direct- Toxicity Assessment) in relation to characteristics of the Region of Madrid will be developed. The application of different remediation strategies such as electrokinetic, bioremediation and phytoremediation, will be considered in relation to the size and type of contaminant, heavy metals or organic compounds, characteristics of the ecosystem and the future use of the soil. For this purpose, a selection of adequate microorganisms and plants; and, on the other hand, of representative placements will be carried out. With the aim to evaluate the efficiency of the remediation processes, an ecotoxicological analysis system will be developed to quantify the ecosystem remediation in terms of cost/benefit. The present communication aims to display the first approach to the investigation proposed by EIADES Program.
