Augustina Pruteanu, Adriana Muscalu

Abstract


Intensification of industrial activities and the demographic explosion resulted in severe environmental pollution, with dramatic consequences on the atmosphere, water and soil. The pace of production and dispersion of the pollutant exceededat present the natural processes of of biodegradation, the release of toxic substances into the terrestrial ecosystem representing a major problem. In search of technological remedies of the environmental pollution, phytoremediation, that uses directly green plants, provides important perspectives. Although at present this therapy technique is poorly implemented, it presents certain advantages including the reduced environmental impact. Therefore, this paper is a synthesis that aims to highlight the use of medicinal plants, specially selected for the greening of polluted areas.
