At recent time increased soil pollution with heavy metals due to various human and natural activities creates this problem with the numerous hazards compounds into the environment. These hazardous compounds consists many type of organic pollutant and heavy metals which produce risk for human health. Many technologies used to solve this problem but they are expensive. For that reason using phytoremediation technology which is a tremendous, feasible, cost-effective ‘green’ technology based on the use of metal-accumulating plants to remove toxic metals, pesticides, explosives including radionuclides from soil and water. Therefore the aim of the present study is to describe the different mechanisms of phytoremediation and their potential work to remediate contamination from soil environment by using living plants.
