Abstract: Due to atmospheric deposition of dust, a large agricultural area in Belgium is moderately superficially (0-40 cm) contaminated with lead (Pb), zinc (Zn) and cadmium (Cd). Phytoremediation is a technique that uses plants for the removal of pollutants or to render them harmless. Rapeseed and SRC seem a good choice because of high accumulation of metals. When income and energy production come into play, energy maize has a competitive advantage. Multi Criteria Decision Analysis (MCDA) can be a helpful tool to decide on the appropriate non-food purpose crop.
