Phytoremediation is a soft decontamination technique that exploits the natural capacities of plant species, algae (phycoremediation), but also fungi (mycoremediation) to degrade, store or immobilize a wide range of contaminants present in their environment (air, water and soil) .
Four phytoremediation […]
Phytotechnologies involve the use of living plants to solve environmental problems. The plants are selected and implanted to achieve specific objectives, such as:
Air, water and/or soil remediation
Erosion and runoff control
Wind speed reduction
Greenhouse gas sequestration
Phytotechnologies are numerous: they include the […]
Ecological restoration is an intentional action that initiates or accelerates the recovery of an ecosystem’s function, integrity and sustainability. Ecological restoration thus re-establishes the mechanisms for abiotic support of the biological components of the environment. The success of an ecological […]
