ERICo - Communication between nature, society and modern technology


Ecoremediation – fitoremediation is a method for stabilisation or for removing pollutants from contaminated sediments, soil and wastewater. Most of our attention is devoted on the researches of interactions between metal, plants and microorganisms for understanding the procedures of adoption, transport and tolerance of metal by the usage of phytoremediation for surface sanitation.

The method of ecoremediation – phytoremediation is based on the fact that the plants are solar pumps, which, through the process of photosynthesis and evapotranspiration from the environment are able to adopt defined elements. Due to their long-term, sustainability, efficiency, cost moderation and landscape attractiveness, this method is becoming more and more popular in the world as well as in Slovenia.
