Technosols of Mining and Quarrying Areas: Toward Multifunctionality


The soils of mining and quarrying areas, characterised as Technosols, are deeply modified soils. The intense degradation they are subject to has altered their capacity to support ecosystem services. However rehabilitation issues are now considering the multi-functionality of mining and quarrying Technosols, i.e. their capacity to provide altogether several ecosystem services. Integrated rehabilitation techniques encompassing physical, chemical and ecological aspects are now being designed to ensure sustainable multifunctional soils in mining and quarrying areas. The aim of this position paper is to assess the multifunctional potential of Technosols of those areas and, thus, to determine its implications for the establishment of rehabilitation schemes
