Remediation of heavy metal contaminated soil in mining areas by hyperaccumulator plants

Chen's research is about the remediation of mining tailings by hyperaccumulator plants and the phytomining or reuse of these plants. These element(s) in the plants will also cause second pullution so we need to disposal them properly. The technology of the phytomining will hepl us to reuse the element(s).


Chen is a PhD candidate of China University of Mining and Technology and was sponsored by Chinese Scholarship Council to collaborate with CMLR under the supervision of Dr Antony van der Ent. Chen's focus is on hyperaccumulator plants and the multifunctional remediation plant which can used to restore the mining dumps and the tailings.
