Phytomining, on the other hand, is the use of hyperacccumulator plants to grow and harvest in order to recover commercially valuable metals in plant shoots from metal-rich sites.
Substantial consideration is also being focused on utilizing hyper accumulating species for phytoremediation and phytomining, where they can be grown in a nickel-contaminated soil and then harvested and exported from the field.
