Making Green Remediation GreenerNebraska MAIN PROJECT GALLERY
Phytoremediation can be supplemented using a pump system to recirculate impacted groundwater as irrigation. Normally using an electric pump will produce carbon emissions, but not if it is a solar powered pump. This particular solar pump unit is recirculating nitrogen impacted groundwater onto a hybrid poplar plantation. The trees use both the water and the nitrates, and add pleasing aesthetics to the property.
