Abstract: Water contamination is a major problem world is facing today and the kitchen waste is one of the important factors. The kitchen waste water contamination consists of mainly micro-organisms, toxic organic and inorganic matter. It is found that phytoremediation is one of the effective methods for the removal of pollutants from water and soil. Phytoremediation consist of media beds, plants, micro-organisms which is mainly depends on physical, chemical and biological activity to remove the contaminants. Phytoremediation reduce the pollutant concentration, such as Biochemical Oxygen Demand, Chemical Oxygen Demand, total dissolved solid, Total Solids solid, Total Phosphorus, Total nitrogen from the kitchen wastewater as plants play a great role in the removal of pollutants. This paper focused on the treatment of kitchen wastewater by phytoremediation.
