ABSTRACT
Over the last years, many researchers have investigated how renewable energies can contribute to the security of the energy supply. On the other hand, soil decontamination technologies are another interesting topic related to environmental protection. In the first part of the paper, we illustrate some results obtained by a PhD thesis prepared at the “POLITEHNICA” University of Bucharest on pyrolysis thermal treatments of the biomass. The last part of the paper is dedicated to a new research began in the framework of the project co-financed by RECOLAND European funds (ID519, SMIS-CSNR: 11982, Nb. 182/18.06.2010). It is about contaminated soils pyrolysis and potential human health risk before and after the thermal treatment used as decontamination method. We have to underline that RECOLAND takes into consideration, besides soils pyrolysis, also incineration,biological and electrochemical treatments and cost analysis. This way, the multicriteria decisional system that will be developed will be able to decide which remediation technique is most appropriate to be applied in order to decontaminate the soil
