Author(s): Aarti Sharma, Vineet Kaswan and Amit Kaushik
Abstract: Phytoremediation is a bioremediation process that uses various types of plants to remove, transfer, stabilize, and/or destroy contaminants in the soil and groundwater. There are several different types of phytoremediation mechanisms. With the advance in agriculture and manufacturing industries various hazardous chemicals and compounds are being released which has long term ill effect on the environment. This approach can solve the problem of disposal of radio waste and hence render our environment safe coupled with abundant use of Nuclear energy. Though, some people have also defined Bioremediation as the process which utilize microorganisms or their enzymes to restore the contaminated environment to its original natural state.
