2005 Third International Phytotechnologies Conference
Sponsored by: U.S. Environmental Protection Agency
Office of Research and Development (ORD) and
Technology Innovation and Field Services Division (TIFSD)
Phytotechnologies use plants to clean or contain contaminants from soil, sediments, or water. Planted systems can degrade organic pollutants and extract heavy metals. Advancement has been made in the research to identify and optimize plant capability to reduce risk and enhance environmental benefit. This conference will present the state of science and engineering development in phytotechnologies worldwide. More specifically, the purpose of this conference is to understand which technologies using plants are currently effective, how best to integrate research science and field applications, and what questions need further research.
