Old industrial facilities such as smelters, mills, petroleum refineries, and chemical
manufacturing plants are highly likely to have been sources of toxic wastes.
Regions of the ... At a single site, thousands of tons of tainted dirt and rock may
require incineration or other treatment. Cleaning up contaminated groundwater
usually entails pumping vast amounts of water out of the ground — hopefully
extracting the contaminated water faster than it can spread through the water
table or aquifer.

T. caerulescens, a metal lophyte that is able to accumulate up to 4% zinc14 in
leaf dry matter, has attracted much attention for its possible use in
phytoremediation of metal contaminated soils. Brassica spp. (B. juncea, B. iiapus,
and B. campestris) exhibited moderately enhanced Zn accumulation23 and were
comparable to that of T. caerulescens for phytoextraction of Zn contaminated soil.
Several other plant species Salix spp24, Coppice birch (Betula pendula)25 , Mint
piperita16 and ...
