Study of environmental pollution and their effect
Environmental pollution may be defined as "the unfavourable alternation of our surroundings". It changes the quality of air, water and land which interferes with the health of humans and other life on earth. Environmental pollution is one of the most serious global challenges. Environmental pollution is one the major problems that affects biodiversity, ecosystem and human health worldwide by contaminating soil and water.
Phytoremediation, the use of plants for environmental restoration, exploits naturally occurring uptake capabilities of plant root systems together with the translocation, bioaccumulation or detoxifying abilities to clean up the surrounding environments. Phytoremediation is a cost- effective, environmentally friendly, nonintrusive and affordable technological solution used to extract or remove inactive metals and metal pollutants from contaminated soil and water.
