Phytoremediation is the name of a set of technologies that use plants to degrade, extract, or contain contaminants from soil and water. This topic has been the subject of sporadic research for 25 years, and a great deal of research over the last 10 years. This report summarizes much of that research in order to provide the site manager, owner, regulator, or researcher with n understanding of what may be expected of a phytoremediative technology on a given site. This is not a design manual or a guidance document. This is intended as first step toward evaluating phytoremediation, and describes the questions that need to be answered before a remedy can be selected. The report consists of two introductory chapters, an evaluation of the many kinds of phytoremediation and when each might be appropriate, design considerations, a chapter on treatability studies and monitoring, and six case studies. A glossary and site database are included as Appendices, with an extensive Reference list and a cross reference of all the plants mentioned in the report.
