Description

Fiber Crop–Based Phytoremediation: Socio-economic and Environmental Sustainability provides an informative source of information on using fiber crops for phytoremediation. Phytoremediation is gaining attention globally due to ever-increasing numbers and areas of industrially polluted sites. The major challenge is to develop new and cost-effective solutions to decontaminate polluted sites. In this regard, plant-based remediation, especially using fiber crops, is a promising and cost-effective approach for environmental remediation on a large-scale due to its socio-economic and ecological sustainability. Furthermore, changing environmental conditions also cause various biotic and abiotic stresses in fiber crops and thereby negatively affect the fiber crop establishment, growth and yield.This book will be specifically important to these readers who need to be able to select specific fiber crop species according to site-specificity of the contaminated site.

Key Features

  • Provides up-to-date research and understanding on how to utilize fiber crops for the phytoremediation of contaminated land
  • Covers a wide range of applicable fiber crops, including bast, grass and woody crops, allowing for the utilization of techniques regardless of specific fiber crop
  • Details the uses and benefits of fiber crop phytoremediation on environmental, societal and economic development

Readership

Environmental scientists, particularly those working in pollution management and remediation, researchers in biology and agriculture
