Anyone ever hear of phytoremediation and its use in landfill restoration??

It's the use of plants to clean up sites that have been contaminated with chemicals or petroleum products
whom ever made up that big word must have paid a lot for that dictionary. all it means is that they use natural enzymes and techniques to layer a landfill and restore the surface layer to original characteristics before returning it back to the community proper.
The word's etymology comes from the Greek « phyto » = plant, and Latin « remedium » = restoring balance, or remediating. Phytoremediation consists in depolluting contaminated soils, water or air with plants able to contain, degrade or eliminate metals, pesticides, solvents, explosives, crude oil and its derivatives, and various other contaminants, from the mediums that contain them. It is clean, efficient, inexpensive and non-environmentally disruptive, as opposed to processes that require excavation of soil.
