This session will elucidate cost-effective practical methods for using a combination of mechanical methods, vascular plants, fungi and/or microorganisms in bioremediation/phytoremediation/mycoremedation to volatilize, degrade, digest or sequester excessive nutrients, hydrocarbons, and/or heavy metals in soils and/or stormwater on project sites.
Will be able to list 3 common contaminants in soil/water within redevelopment sites that can be mitigated by phytoremediation methods
Will be able to list 3 methods for planting or dispersing propagules or spawn in contaminated soil/water needing remediation
Will be able to describe the benefits of phytoremediation compared to traditional soil/water clean up methods.
