Determination of Phytotreatment of Polychlorinated Biphenyls Contaminated Soil

The main goal of this study was to determine whether Chromolaena odorata stem cuttings could grow and thrive in soil that contained different concentrations of polychlorinated biphenyl (PCB) congeners found in Aroclor 1254 and whether they could potentially decontaminate such soil in a greenhouse environment. A group of chemicals known as PCBs are created commercially…

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

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…
