Study on Phytoremediation Potential of Vetiver Plants and Its Amelioration by Ascorbic Acid in Constructed Wetlands

September 11, 2021 Environment and Earth Science 0

The primary goal of this research is to evaluate the performance of vetiver plants (Vetiveria zizanioides L. Nash) in phytoremediation of service station wastewater in artificial wetlands under controlled greenhouse conditions. The study also attempts to see how vetiver plants respond to ascorbic acid (AA) amendment after being treated with service station effluent. The study’s findings revealed that seven days of ascorbic acid (10 mg/mL) treatment on alternate days for up to 15 days to the service When compared to un-amended wastewater treated vetiver plants, station wastewater treated vetiver plants improved their growth, tolerance, and hyper-accumulation capacity. According to the findings, adding calculated amounts of ascorbic acid to metal-contaminated soil/wastewater improves vetiver plants’ phytoremediation potential by raising their tolerance to heavy metal stress.
