Average analytical samples of two soils taken at a 0–15 cm depth from industrial degraded areas located in Upper Silesia in Poland were used in these investigations. One of the soils originated from Miasteczko Śląskie (S1) located in the nearest vicinity of a zinc smelter (Figure 1a) and the other from Szopienice (S2), the former area of non-ferrous metals steelworks (Figure 1b). The soil samples were air dried, crushed and passed through a 2 mm sieve. The soil samples were analyzed as described in the analytical procedures section. Four one-kilogram samples were separated from each soil. One sample of each soil without any additives was set as a control sample. The other samples were mixed thoroughly with poultry manure (PM) and a proper amount of CaO2. Poultry manure was collected from commercial poultry houses situated in Silesia region in Poland. The sample of PM was analyzed as described in the analytical procedures section.
