- ... Two halophytes, Atriplex halimus and Atriplex hortensis, were selected to be tested for phytodesalination of road runoff. A 60 d pot experiment was conducted and germination, survival, growth, and bioaccumulation of NaCl and trace metals by both species were monitored in conditions simulating those encountered in road runoff treatment systems. NaCl concentration was controlled in the hydration sol ...

- ... Dry powder of the roots from the wetland halophyte species Kosteletzkya pentacarpos grown in the presence or in the absence of 50mM NaCl was used for biosorption of Cd and Zn. Experiments were performed in batch conditions using 100mg of root powder and 10mL of contaminated solution. Optimal temperature was found to be 25°C and contact time of 15min was sufficient for maximal adsorption. Sorption ...
