Phytoremediation is a set of viable technologies that uses selected plants and their microorganisms to degrade, extract, contain, or immobilize contaminants from soil and water. It is based on natural processes that can be effective at a variety of sites and on numerous contaminants. Processes are carried out by selected plant species that possess the genetic potential to remove, degrade, metabolize, or immobilize a wide range of contaminants
