Phytoremediation Techniques and Species for Combating Contaminants of Textile Effluents ? An Overview

Ketan S. Kimmatkar | Prof. Abhay V. Purohit | Prof. A. J. Sanyal

Abstract: Increasing population is placing increasingly greater demand for the resources to meet their requirements. This leads to industrialization and consequent pressure on the existing natural resources. Increasing urban population and the consequent industrialization draw heavy quantity of water and provide a large quantity of wastewater effluent. The problems are further aggravating for disposal of these effluents. One of the important measures is using these effluents in tree plantations to control land degradation and improve environmental conditions. Dozens of remediation technologies developed internationally could be divided in two general categories incineration and non-incineration. Phyoremediation technology makes the use of the naturally occurring processes by which plants and their associated rhizospheric microflora degrade and sequester organic and inorganic pollutants Pollutant-degrading enzymes in plants probably originate from natural defense systems against the variety of chemicals released by pollutants. This system helps in natural and effective way of combating effluents in eco-friendly way.
