IN VITRO PHYTOREMEDIATION OF PERSISTENT ORGANIC POLLUTANTS BY Helianthus annuus L. PLANTS
(Soc Brasileira Quimica, 2018-03-01)
Plant model systems are needed to properly conduct basic laboratory studies prior to field applications of phytoremediation. In vitro plant cultures are a useful tool for such research. This study focuses on the removal ...
Phytoremediation of Soils Contaminated with Metals: Current Outlook and Prospects of use of Forest Species
(Brazilian Chemical Soc, 2019-01-01)
Phytoremediation is a technique that uses plants to recover contaminated soils. This method has advantages because of its permanent nature, combined with low maintenance costs, protection against wind and water erosion and ...
Water phytoremediation of cadmium and copper using Azolla filiculoidesLam. in a hydroponic system
(WILEY-BLACKWELL, 111 RIVER ST, HOBOKEN 07030-5774, NJ USA, 2013)
Phytoremediation of the endocrine disruptors bisphenol A, linuron and 17α-ethinylestradiol in NOM-enriched water and freshwaters
The rising presence of endocrine disruptors (EDs) in the environment, especially in aquatic systems, may endanger wildlife and humans. The removal of EDs from water by means of the new and sustainable technology of ...
Physiological mechanisms and phytoremediation potential of the macrophyte Salvinia biloba towards a commercial formulation and an analytical standard of glyphosate
Glyphosate (Gly) is the most widely used herbicide in the world and has broad-spectrum and non-selective activity. Its indiscriminate use hence risks contamination of water bodies and can affect living organisms, especially ...
DDTs-induced antioxidant responses in plants and their influence on phytoremediation process
(Academic Press Inc Elsevier Science, 2018-01)
Phytoremediation is a low cost technology based on the use of plants to remove a wide range of pollutants from the environment, including the insecticide DDT. However, some pollutants are known to enhance generation of ...
EVALUATION OF THE EFFECTIVENESS IN THE RECOVERY OF WATER CONTAMINATED BY HYDROCARBONS, THROUGH THE TECHNIQUE OF PHYTOREMEDIATION USING VETIVER GRASS
The present work was based on the study and evaluation of an alternative treatment, for the reduction of the pollutant load of the production residual waters, generated in the oil field of Chichemene, in the department of ...
