Green for Brown (G4B): a novel tool for evaluating phytoextraction in soils polluted by heavy metals

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

Green for Brown (G4B) is a novel, open-source, computer-based, and spatially-distributed tool for evaluating phytoextraction in soils polluted by heavy metals. G4B operates with easily quantifiable inputs related to the soil, plant, and climate compartments. We evaluate G4B’s potential by simulating the arsenic (As) phytoextraction performance of a fern. G4B predictions indicate that the tested fern was able to extract 17.23 mg L-1 of As per growing cycle, requiring 8 cycles to restore the soil As to safety level. G4B was shown to be an effective and viable tool for assessing heavy metal phytoextraction from polluted soil.
