Three plant species, Eichhornia crassipes in a nutrient hydroponic culture Beta vulgaris saccharifera, and Beta vulgaris cicla in soil and in water cultures, were found to deplete benzene from the air. Following benzene depletion, plant tissues were extracted and no benzene was detected. This suggests that benzene was completely utilized within the test system and that it was degraded to other chemicals.
