Phytoremediation to Treat Contaminated Soil and Polluted Water
Soil and stormwater contaminated with excessive nutrients, petroleum-based toxins, and heavy metals, is common in former industrial sites, brownfields, and agricultural lands being redeveloped for residential or other uses. Combinations of bioremediation, phytoremediation, and mycoremediation methods can be used to digest, metabolize, sequester and/or remove select contaminants present in soil /water on project sites. This course will focus on practical methods for treating contaminated soil and water to hasten site recovery.
