Abstract

The soil field application testing involved growing of selected potential plants on a sludge farm condition in order to see the survival of the selected plants and evaluate the effectiveness of the Phytoremediation under real site conditions. The study can generate design and cost data for full-scale application. The implementation study covers selection of suitable plants, design concept for planting the plant species, preparation of the site, installing the necessary instrumentation, actual planting of the plants, maintenance of plant health through consistent watering and periodic fertilization and monitoring of the plants growth and assessing effectiveness of the phytoremediation activities in the soil. The environmental site assessment (ESA) at site and detailed site investigation and implementation for remediation and clean up technology were used to define the phytoremediation performance. The results indicate that the applied phytoremediation system at the site has shown a great performance with a reduction of contaminant concentration of heavy metals and hydrocarbon.
