The same can be said about lead (Pb) contamination. Lead (Pb) is one of the most common pollutants on the planet, and can be found in almost every soil on the planet dated after the industrial revolution.

    Phytoremediation is the use of green plants and their associated microbiota, soil amendments, and agronomic techniques to remove, contain, or render harmless environmental contaminants. It is an emerging technology which offers a potentially cost-effective and environmentally sound alternative to the environmentally destructive physical methods which are currently practised for the cleanup of. The scientific term for the process is called hydroponic phytoremediation. In plain English, phytoremediation is the use of plants to stabilize and reduce contamination in a variety of substrates, including soils, sludge, sediments, and water. On the other hand, hydroponics is a method of growing plants in solutions of water.

Phytoremediation is the use of green plants and their associated microbiota, soil amendments, and agronomic techniques to remove, contain, or render harmless environmental contaminants.

It is an emerging technology which offers a potentially cost-effective and environmentally Wetlands and Sediments book alternative to the environmentally destructive physical methods which are currently practised for the cleanup of contaminated groundwater, terrestrial soil, sediments.

The book highlights process and molecular mechanisms for industrial waste detoxification during phytoremediation in wetland plants, role of endophytic bacteria for phytoremediation of environmental pollutants, constructed wetland treatment system for treatment and recycling of hazardous wastewater, amongst other relevant topics.

Contamination of water by toxic pollutants through the discharge of municipal, domestic, hospital, and industrial wastewater has become a worldwide environmental problem due to its serious. This study is being done to integrate global scientific research on phytoremediation and to assess current trends of pollutant removal by wetlands.

It focuses on phytoremediation of excessive organic. Phytoremediation using constructed wetlands (CWs) has become a logical solution to improve the quality of contaminated waters by acting as a sink for various contaminants.

Hence, the present chapter is aimed to provide a concise discussion of the CWs and its phytoremediation attributes as a plant-based cleanup technology for the remediation of.

Engineered wetland phytoremediation is an aesthetically pleasing, solar-driven, passive technique useful for cleaning up wastes including metals, pesticides, crude oil, polyaromatic hydrocarbons, and landfill leachates and has become an increasingly recognized pathway to advance the treatment capacity of wetland systems.

Phytoremediation, the use of green plants to treat and control wastes in water, soil, and air, is an important part of the new field of ecological engineering.

In situ and ex situ applications are governed by site soil and water characteristics, nutrient sustainability, meteorology, hydrology, feasible ecosystems, and contaminant characteristics.

Assessing the phytoremediation potential of wetlands is complex due to variable conditions of hydrology, soil/sediment types, plant species diversity, growing season, and water chemistry. This book summarizes the recent progress in the research on the feasibility and potential of phytoremediation using constructed mangrove wetlands for wastewater and contaminated sediments.

(Imprint: Novinka). The book highlights process and molecular mechanisms for industrial waste detoxification during phytoremediation in wetland plants, role of endophytic bacteria for phytoremediation of environmental pollutants, constructed wetland treatment system for treatment and recycling of hazardous wastewater, amongst other relevant topics.

Phytoremediation aids to augment bioremediation as it uses broad range plants to remediate soil, sediment, surface water and ground water that have been contaminated with toxic metals, organic, pesticides and radionuclides.

This book serves to disseminate detailed up to date knowledge regarding the various aspects of phytoremediation and plant-microbe interaction.

The book. Assessing the phytoremediation potential of wetlands is complex due to variable conditions of hydrology, soil/sediment types, plant species diversity, growing season, and water chemistry.

Conclusions about long-term phytoremediation potential are further complicated by the process of ecological succession in wetlands.

This review of wetlands phytoremediation addresses the role of wetland. Phytoremediation with wetland plants is an eco-friendly, aesthetically pleasing, cost-effective, solar-driven, passive technique that is useful for cleaning up environmental pollutants with low to moderate levels of contamination.

Phytormediation is an exciting new method for controlling and cleaning up hazardous wastes using green plants. This book is the first to compile the state of the science and engineering arts in 5/5(1). The environmental clean up industry has been estimated as having an annual turnover of $50 billion globally.

With new regulations being written on addi tional chemicals that are just, now, becoming understood from a toxicological and environmental risk standpoint, this industry could expand even further. This is particularly true as more nations become industrialized.

The term phytoremediation (phyto= plant and remediation = correct evil,) is relatively new, coined in Basic infor- mation for what is now called phytoremediation comes from a variety of research areas including constructed wetlands, oil spills, and agricultural plant accumulation of heavy met- als.
