Phytotechnologies
Internet-based seminar
Hosted by Interstate Technology and Regulatory Council (ITRC)

Phytotechnologies use plants to contain, stabilize, sequester, assimilate, reduce, detoxify, degrade, metabolize and/or mineralize contaminants in soil, ground water, surface water, or sediments. Phytotechnologies can be applied in-situ or ex-situ and can address organic compounds such as petroleum hydrocarbons, gas condensates, crude oil, chlorinated compounds, pesticides and explosive compounds plus inorganics including high salinity, heavy metals, metalloids and radioactive materials.

Attention on phytotechnologies led to a December 1999 publication of the ITRC Document titled, Phytoremediation Decision Tree. The decision tree was designed to allow users to input basic information from a site and, through a flowchart layout, decide if phytotechnologies are feasible.

The purpose of this training is to familiarize you with the recently released ITRC Phytotechnologies Technical and Regulatory Guidance and Phytoremediation Decision Tree. It provides technical and regulatory information to help you understand, evaluate and make informed decisions on phytotechnology proposals. Included is a description of the various sciences and engineering practices phytotechnologies require, regulatory considerations and policy issues, stakeholder concerns, case studies, and technical references.
