What is phytoremediation?
Phytoremediation is a remediation technique that involves plant uptake, transformation, accumulation, and/or volatilization of soil- and aqueous-phase contaminants or by the stimulation of microbial cometabolic activity in the rhizosphere of the plant.
The time it takes to clean up a site using phytoremediation depends on several factors:
? type and number of plants being used
? type and amounts of harmful chemicals present
? size and depth of the polluted area
? type of soil and ...
This solution provides information on the environmental parameters that can both inhibit and encourage phytoremediation.
