Phytoremediation describes the process of mitigating pollutant concentrations in contaminated soils, water, or air, with plants able to contain, degrade, or eliminate metals, pesticides, solvents, explosives, crude oil and its derivatives, and various other contaminants from the media that contain them. The contaminants can be removed together with the plant for treatment or disposal elsewhere.
