    Soil contamination has led to serious land tenure problems, reduction in land usability for agricultural production; as a consequence, food insecurity is nowadays a global challenge. Indeed, with rapid population growth across the world, the food demand for consumption has drastically increased and traditional ways of producing food cannot meet with the actual by: 4. The role of PCs in heavy metal detoxification is clear from characterization of the PC synthase-deficient mutants of Arabidopsis and S. pombe. A comparison of the relative sensitivity of the Arabidopsis and S. pombe mutants to different heavy metals revealed a similar but not identical pattern (Ha et al., ). In both organisms, PCs appear to Cited by:

Plant-associated microorganisms have a key role in the remediation of heavy metals from soils. These microorganisms influence the availability and accumulation of heavy metals in soil and plants. Recently, bio-augmentation of plants with particular and adapted microbes has been extensively studied in phytoremediation [38,53,88].

      In this work a soil contaminated with toxic and persistent chlorinated aromatic hydrocarbons (DDT (1,1,1-trichlorobis(p-chlorophenyl)ethane), chlorinated benzenes (CBs)) and heavy metals, (mainly Hg and As) has been studied at the laboratory scale. In particular, a process consisting of a sequential anaerobic-aerobic soil treatment has Author: Jyotsna Lal. The tests included TPH, volatile organics, chlorinated hydrocarbons, metals (EP Toxicity), & PCBs. The PCB-contaminated soils were removed under a previous contract. The tests indicated that the contamination consists mainly of weathered diesel & asphalts.

Heavy metals are among the most important sorts of contaminant in the environment. Several methods already used to clean up the environment from these kinds of contaminants, but most of them are costly and difficult to get optimum results.
