Wednesday Webinar: Partnering Trees and Microbes for Tackling Environmental Pollutants
October 18, 2017 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am
Wednesday October 18, 2017 | 10:00 am-11:00 am PDT
Phytoremediation, the use of plants to clean up sites contaminated with pollutants, can be a cost-effective way to remove a wide range of toxic pollutants including solvents, pesticides, petroleum, and more. Sometimes the pollutant is too toxic, however, and this slows or stops the process. This problem can be overcome using effective plant-microbe partnerships. In this webinar, we will discuss the recent successful field trial of poplar tree phytoremediation with a natural TCE-degrading microbial endophyte.
