Soil contamination in Europe

Soil contamination is a serious issue in Europe. About one third of an estimated total of 342 000 contaminated sites in the EEA-39 have been identified (EEA, 2015)

Annual national expenditures for the management of contaminated sites are on average about EUR 10.7 per capita. Around 81% of the annual national expenditures for the management of contaminated sites is spent on remediation measures, while only 15 % is spent on site investigations (EEA, 2015)
