The gas production from charcoal (up till 1950) has led to a number of cases of soil pollution with cyanides. The reclamation of this polluted soil by excavation and incineration will be an expensive operation. The cleaning of cyanide-polluted soils costs about f 250,=/cu m with the present-day technics. Research is needed to develop new and less-expensive technics. First of all, more knowledge is required about the behaviour of cyanides in the soil. In this poster presented research was initiated and conducted by TAUW Infra Consult B.V. Results from batch and column experiments will be presented from two former gas works sites in Tholen and Zutphen, and effects of organic matter additions will be discussed on the behaviour of cyanides.
