Phytoremediation of Contaminated Soil and Groundwater [Terry, Norman] on *FREE* shipping on qualifying offers. Phytoremediation of Contaminated Soil and Groundwater. Phytoremediation techniques include different modalities, depending on the chemical nature and properties of the contaminant (if it is inert, volatile or subject to degradation in the plant or in the soil) and the plant characteristics (Figure 1).

Thus, phytoremediation essentially comprise six different strategies, though more than one may be Cited by: Phytoremediation, the use of plants to remediate environmental media, is being pursued as a new approach for the cleanup of contaminated soils and waters, including groundwater.

Plant-assisted bioremediation, sometimes referred to as a type of phytoremediation, involves the interaction of plant roots and the microorganisms associated with these root systems to re- diate soils containing 1/5(1).

Phytoremediation has been used principally for hydraulic containment of the shallow aquifer and for “polishing” treatment to remove residual organic contaminants following the removal of most of the contaminated soil in The pilot phytoremediation system installed in was approximately ha in by: 2. Phytoremediation technologies use living plants to clean up soil, air, and water contaminated with hazardous contaminants.

It is defined as "the use of green plants and the associated microorganisms, along with proper soil amendments and agronomic techniques to either contain, remove or render toxic environmental contaminants harmless". The term is an amalgam of the Greek phyto (plant) and.

S.C. McCutcheon, S.E. Jørgensen, in Encyclopedia of Ecology, 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.

Phytoremediation refers to the technologies that use living plants including herbs (e.g. Thlaspi caerulescens, Brassica juncea, Helianthus annuus) and woody (e.g.

Salix spp., Populus spp.) species, to clean up soil, air, and water contaminated with hazardous contaminants using their ability to either contain, remove, uptake, or render harmless.

Phytoremediation is the direct use of living plants for in situ remediation of contaminated soil, sludges, sediments, and ground water through contaminant removal, degradation, or containment.

This text details the plant-assisted remediation method, “phytoremediation”, which involves the interaction of plant roots and associated rhizospheric microorganisms for the remediation of soil and water contaminated with high levels of metals, pesticides, solvents, radionuclides, explosives, nutrients, crude oil, organic compounds and various other contaminants.

Phytoremediation of Contaminated Groundwater Ray Douglas: Groundwater is one of our most important natural resources. It provides drinking water to more than half the population in the United States and even a greater percentage of the people in the developing world.

Phytoremediation represents an efficient ecological solution for treating the polluted soils through the use of plants. This is a passive process, with low costs, appropriate for the limitation of the risk of hazardous wastes in the case of in-depth contaminated soil.

This paper presents a research with a novel result on soil remediation. Good soil lacks contaminants and provides trace minerals and key components for plant growth. But good soil is not always easy to find. And many contaminants can be expensive and require a great deal of time to remove from toxic soil.

Good soil will result when phytoremediation plants clean contaminated soil. Phytoremediation of Contaminated Soil and Water is the most thorough literary examination of the subject available today. The successful implementation of phytoremediation depends on identifying plant material that is well adapted to specific toxic s: 1.

The textbook— Introduction to Phytoremediation of Contaminated Groundwater — has remained in the top 25 percent of the most downloaded online books on the publisher's website † since it became available online (late ).

It is the first textbook to specifically address cleaning up contaminated groundwater using phytoremediation. Phytoremediation is a biological technology process that utilizes natural plant processes to enhance degradation and removal of contaminants in contaminated soil or groundwater.

Broadly, phytoremediation can be cost-effective for a) Large sites with shallow residual-levels of contamination. Phytoremediation takes advantage of the ability of plants to concentrate compounds from the environment. It is a cost-effective method of environmental remediation that is being used to clean up contaminants (e.g.

metals, pesticides, solvents) in projects worldwide. The broad application of petroleum, however, leads to soil and ground water contamination in many places. Unfortunately, this wide-spread contamination has received limited research to date [1]. Oil-contamination of soil and groundwater negatively impacts human and environmental health [2], land deals, and other economic processes [3] [4].

Phytoremediation is a set of ecological strategies that utilizes plants, in situ, to promote the breakdown, immobilization, and removal of pollutants from the environment [1,2,3].Plants have a more direct effect on contaminant levels via phytoextraction, which concentrates contaminants (e.g., heavy metals) from the environment into plant tissues.

Book Description. Providing an introduction, the scientific background, case studies and future perspectives of in-situ arsenic remediation technologies for soils, soil water and groundwater at geogenic and anthropogenic contaminated sites.

The case studies present in-situ technologies about natural arsenic, specifically arsenate and arsenite. Phytoremediation. Phytoremediation, like bioremediation, is a way of using natural processes to clean up contaminated phytoremediation, plants are used instead of microbes. This process is.

phytoremediation of contamination particular metallic elements, first report in this area reported by (Delmail et al., ), There is no reports on natural Mercury.

In the late s and early s, our nation began to grapple with the legacy of past disposal practices for toxic chemicals. With the passage in of the Comprehensive Envir- mental Response, Compensation, and Liability Act (CERCLA), commonly known as Sup- fund, it became the law of the land to remediate these sites.

The U. Department of Defense (DoD), the nation’s largest industrial. contain or render harmless contaminants in soil or groundwater (Cunningham et al., ) (Figure ). In essence, phytoremediation employs human initiative to enhance the natural attenuation of contaminated sites and, as such, is a process that is intermediate between engineering and natural attenuation.

Because phytoremediation depends on. Book Description. Interest in phytoremediation as a solution for contaminants in groundwater and soil has exploded. The project documented in Phytoremediation of Hydrocarbon Contaminated Soils presents innovative technology for environmental clean up using in situ treatment.

It describes the results of a field study focusing on hydrocarbon. Phytoremediation, an emerging cleanup technology for contaminated soils, groundwater, and wastewater that is both low-tech and low-cost, is defined as the engineered use of green plants (including grasses, forbs, and woody species) to remove, contain, or render harmless such environmental contaminants as heavy metals, trace elements, organic compounds and radioactive compounds in soil.

Phytoremediation of toxic soil and water dates back to the s. As researchers with the U.S. Department of Agriculture began visiting farm plots ravaged by fertilizers, they noticed that some.

Plant-based remediation (phytoremediation) is a relatively inexpensive, low-tech approach that may lead to at least partial decontamination and restoration of contaminated sites.

It takes advantage of the natural abilities of some plants to remove contaminants from the environment. Below are excerpts taken from EPA publication: Guide to Phytoremediation Phytoremediation uses plants to clean up contaminated environments.

Plants can help clean up many types of contaminants including metals, pesticides, explosives, and oil. However, they work best where contaminant levels are low because high concentrations may limit plant growth and take too long to clean up.

Plants also. Phytoremediation of dye contaminated soil by Leucaena leucocephala (subabul) groundwater, surface water, and air. It can be used as a remediate or as part of a broader site management alternative comprising a number of remediation technologies.

Plants have grown naturally at contaminated waste sites and have been planted for esthetic value. Book Description Taylor & Francis Inc, United States, Hardback. Condition: New. Language: English.
