Abstract

Phytoremediation technology involves plants to treat contaminated areas. In this study, before phytoremediation technology can be used to treat mining wastewater, the range of the mixture of Fe and Al concentrations was determined in order to investigate the plant tolerance and survival towards those contaminants. The combined effects of Fe and Al were investigated by observing the visible symptoms of withering and death of plants at the end of exposure day (Day 21). Three-litre pails containing 3 kg of sand and plants (Scirpus grossus and Lepironia articulata) were exposed to different concentrations of Fe and Al solution mixture (150 mg L<sup>-1</sup> Fe+50 mg L<sup>-1</sup> Al until 750 mg L<sup>-1</sup> Fe+250 mg L<sup>-1</sup> Al with mass ratio between Fe and Al was 3:1). After 21 days of exposure, it was observed that L. articulata could tolerated in a more highly concentrated mixture of Fe and Al (450 mg L<sup>-1</sup> Fe+150 mg L<sup>-1</sup> Al) compared to S. grossus (300 mg L<sup>-1</sup> Fe+100 mg L<sup>-1</sup> Al) with 33.3% survival. Therefore, by determining the tolerance and survival of S. grossus and L. articulate towards Fe and Al, it is useful in designing the effective phytoremediation technology for the treatment of mining wastewater.
