Phytoremediation: Selecting and Using Phytoremediation for Site Cleanup

Dennis G. Shin, PE

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (USEPA) is dedicated to developing and promoting innovative cleanup strategies that restore contaminated sites to productive use, reduce associated costs, and promote environmental stewardship. The USEPA strives for cleanup techniques that use fewer natural resources and are energy efficient, reduce negative impacts on the environment, minimize or eliminate pollution at its source, and reduce waste to the greatest extent possible. Cleanup technologies that reduce costs, decrease time frames, or positively affect other decision considerations can have a significant effect on the redevelopment potential of Brownfield sites.

Phytoremediation incorporates these strategies to remedy contaminated sites and maximizes the net environmental benefit of cleanup actions and reduction of project costs. Phytoremediation represents a group of innovative technologies that use plants and natural processes to remediate or stabilize hazardous wastes in soil, sediments, surface water, and/or groundwater.

This course includes a multiple-choice quiz at the end, which is designed to enhance the understanding of the course materials.
