Abstract

The accumulation of heavy metals in soils increases rapidly due to various natural processes. Heavy metal pollution changes the geotechnical properties of soil and poses a serious threat to human health and ecosystems, so soil pollution remediation is particularly important. Phytoremediation is an environmentally friendly approach that can be used as a successful mitigation measure to restore heavy metal-contaminated soils cost-effectively. The plants extract and remove elemental contaminants or reduce their bioavailability in soil and improve the geotechnical properties. In this study, we are conducting a pot experiment with Amaranthus by adding Zn salt as a contaminant and determining the rate of removal of metal.
