The studies done at nationally and internationally level shown that, in time, into the environment have been released by different industrial sources, organic or inorganic toxic substances that can be accumulated at different ecosystem levels (water, air, soil and subsoil). This led to negative effects on the ecosystem and finally on humans. Impact on human health is negative as a consequence of the developed industry, applied technologies and local context (meteorology, orography, demography and other).

One of the main aims of the RECOLAND project is to develop a system that will allow the assessment of human health risk from persistent and toxic pollutants (PTPs) in contaminated soils. The originality of the developed system is given by the multicriteria decision support system based on planning and sustainability of specific land use considering in the same time the economical aspects. These are important aspects for planning and management of historical and contaminated industrial areas with persistent and toxic pollutants.
