New Development for Phytoremediation: Harvesting Collected Contaminants

A team of researchers led by the University of Warwick are about to embark on a research program called “Cleaning Land for Wealth” (CL4W), that will use a common class of flower to restore poisoned soils while at the same time produce platinum and arsenic nanoparticles that can be used in a range of applications. A “Sandpit” exercise organized by the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council allowed researchers from the Warwick Manufacturing group (WMG) at five universities to share technologies and skills to come up with an innovative multidisciplinary research project that could “help solve major technological and environmental challenges.”
