PLANTS FOR PHYTOREMEDIATION AND BIOFUEL PRODUCTION
MetadataShow full item record
Today decontamination of heavy metal polluted soils is a very important problem in Ukraine. Soils are always contaminated by pollutants, pesticide remains and heavy metals. Soil contamination is a result of functioning mining, metallurgy and chemical industry plants as well as non-rational application of chemical means of plant protection in agriculture. The range of such preparations as well as the areas of contaminated soils increase every year. That is why it is necessary to study innovative techniques of soil decontamination from heavy metals and their compounds. Phytoremediation with the help of plants is one of the most efficient decontamination techniques.
