Abstract:


Phytoremediation technology involves the role of plants for removing various contaminants from the environment.

Recent studies demonstrated that medicinal and aromatic plants possess potential to accumulate/remove various contaminants from the environment. Hence medicinal herbs also offer a good and sustainable option for removal of contaminants from the environment and remediation of contaminated sites.
