The results show that (i) Brassicajuncea is a better phytoremediation plant that Brassica rapa in all cases, (ii) Brassica rapa andjuncea are viable phytoremediation plants in both phytoextraction
and rhizofiltration, (iii) in a multi-component system metal accumulation is enhanced, and (iv) metal accumulation increases over time.
is the process by which metal-accumulating plants concentrate metals from the soil into the harvestable parts of the plant above ground, where it can be removed, dried and burned to metal-rich ash.
