Fibre Crops-Based Phytoremediation: Socio-Economic and Environmental Sustainability (Paperback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Fibre 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.
