Phytoremediation Articles

 Phytoremediation is the active use of green plants and their related micro-organisms to restore or minimize soil, sludge, mud, surface water or groundwater contamination. Sites with low contaminant concentrations over large cleanup areas and shallow depths pose particularly favorable phytoremediation conditions. This is an emerging technology that can be used in combination with or instead of traditional mechanical clean-up technologies, which also require high capital inputs and are energy-intensive.   Many transgenic plants for phytoremediation were produced in nearly 20 years of research; however, very few have demonstrated promise in commercial applications.
