Abstract: Chromium ore was treated to produce ferrochromium from 1979 until 2000 in a smelter in Burrel, 35 kin NE of Tirana (Albania). As a consequence, large amounts of solid waste, i.e. slags (about 9.10(6) m(3)) have been disposed next to the smelter, disfiguring the landscape. In an attempt to define contaminated sites, heavy metal content of the different sampling media have been compared with respective background samples.
