Treść
Contamination of soils with heavy metals (HMs) is a growing concern since HMs are not biodegradable and can accumulate in living organisms causing a hazard to plants, animals, and humans. Phytoremediation is a costefficient technology that uses plants to remove, transform or detoxify contaminants from water, sediments, soils, and atmosphere. During the last years, phytoremediation entered the stage of modeling such process on a large scale by using mathematical models. Such models can be useful tools to further understand processes that influence the efficiency of phytoremediation and to precisely plan such actions on a large scale. When dealing with extremely complicated and challenging processes like the interactions between the climate, soil, and plants, modeling phytoremediation before starting an operation can significantly reduce the time and cost of such process by granting us the accurate prediction of possible outcomes. The primary objective for modeling phytoremediation is to check the time necessary for remediation of specific contaminated sites and assess the extent of contaminant removal under given circumstances.
