Abstract

Phytoremediation is becoming a more popular way to remove certain contaminants in a given soil. From removing chromium with mangrove trees or in extreme cases phytoremediation can be used to remove carcinogenic benzene from the groundwater table from a chemical spill. In this study Avicennia Marina “Grey Mangrove” was used to see if this plant removes salt in the water that it was planted in. With this design we hope to integrate it into a real-life situation in which it could be beneficial to the public.
