Study on Application of Phytoremediation Technology in Management and Remediation of Contaminated Soils

Kokyo Oh, Tiehua Cao, Tao Li, and Hongyan Cheng
Abstract—Phytoremediation is an emerging and eco-friendly green engineering technology that utilizes the natural properties of plants to remediate contaminated soils, water and sediments. Soil contamination by various inorganic and organic compounds has been a worldwide concern, and phytoremediation has benn received increasing attention for remediation of these contaminants. However, the practical application of phytoremediation has been limited because of its low remediation efficiency. This paper addresses phytoremediation on its characteristics, research status, with emphasis on description of its practical application in management and remediation of soil contaminated sites.

Index Terms—Soil contamination, soil resources, management, phytoremediation, practical application.
