Soil washing is usually conducted in mobile plants on site; however, prior to field implementation of the treatment, detailed soil characterization and trials are required to optimize the process. In this work, soils affected by heavy metals as a result of mining, metallurgical, and industrial activities were evaluated and treated at pilot scale. The diversity of soils and residues treated in combination with the variety of the methodologies employed enabled the elaboration of a general feasibility protocol for pilot-scale soil washing studies. https://www.mdpi.com/2504-3900/2/23/1458/pdf
