Phytoremediation potential of contaminated soils using native plants: A review

Author(s) : G. SWAMINATHAN, UMA SAKTHIVEL

Abstract

Green remediations of soils are highly contaminated with toxic elements can be achieved by suitable pants. Such phytoremediation techniques are considered for remediating the toxic concentrations in plants and not produced biomass. Therefore, the main objective of the present study reviews the phytoremediation potential approaches applicable to the contaminated soil using native plants in Tiruchy location. The major toxic contaminants are heavy metals and other contaminants released through wastewater disposing of them in a soil stratum. The native plants are Azadirachta indica Scrirpus grossus and Sorghastrum nutans L. growing in the locality. The native plants are possibly used to improve the absorption capacity of soils especially concerning heavy metals. This review paper covers the roles and potential role of native plants in the phytoremediation of contaminated soils. It has also reviewed recent research work on the efficiency of Azadirachta indica Scrirpus grossus and Sorghastrum nutans L. in soil remediation and identified areas for further studies in phytoremediation processes for wastewater.
