It also affects the marine life in the water, because the chemicals also seep into the water.
We can try bio remediation
Hmmmmmm, so what should we do to prevent this?
Bio-remediation is a way to detoxify the contaminated land. In this process you can just you plant specific plants and microorganisms on the contaminated land they will break down the toxins for you.
What's Bio remediation?
ok so, Indian mustard and tabacco plant highly used for this purpose and that's because these plants decompose/neutralize the toxins in the soil. It does it by sucking up the toxins from underground through the help of photosynthesis and then deposits it on the above ground or it will decompose the toxin, using solar energy during photosynthesis.
HUH! But how can specific plants and microorganisms break down the toxins??
Similarly, endophytic and rhizospheric bacterias are used in this process to decompose the toxins. They decompose the toxin in the soil by their metabolism and then later helps the plant suck it up to the above soil.
Wow that is so cool, wouldn't it take a lot of time?
That is true but bioremediation is less destructive, energy efficient and cheaper, meaning that it wouldn't cost much and it wouldn't need a lot of labour, whereas other remediation methods would be expensive, disruptive and less energy efficient.
Makes a lot more sense now! Thanks Max for explaining me the process of bioremediation
