The past human activities, mainly that related to industrial development caused in many cases a strong contamination of soil, subsoil environment and of groundwater. This type of pollution is a concern because it poses risks to human health and to the ecosystem. More than this, such areas may not be used for new development, requiring solutions for remediation. The management of these sites consists of three main activities: characterization, remediation and, finally, redevelopment. The paper presents a case study dedicated to the first step of contaminated sites management, respectively characterization. This phase is very important, a good characterization could ensure a performant solution for the second step – remediation. Two new techniques for site characterization are presented, as technical principles, but also as performances obtained for the mentioned case study.
