#FBF: Panel Session “Environmental Healing through Phytoremediation – Chapter One”
In today’s Flashback Friday #FBF we are taking a look back at Chapter One of a great two-part video session from our 2013 Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit.
Long time Greenroofs.com contributor Patrick Carey, GRP, leads this highly experienced panel of researchers and leaders in the field of phytoremediation, the remediation effects of plants on their immediate environs. As Moderator, Patrick Carey (formerly of Hadj Design in Seattle, Washington) guides this discussion with Dr. Alan Darlington (formerly of NEDLAW Living Walls in Breslau, Ontario, Canada), Dr. Paul Mankiewicz (of the Gaia Institute in New York City), and Dr. Clayton Rugh of Xero Flor America in Durham, North Carolina.
Phytoremediation, plants healing the environment, is a growing approach to air, water, and soil pollution. At times quite technical, this panel reviews and discusses the target pollutants, the various remedial processes of plants and soils, and current examples of systems designed to address pollution issues.
If you’re interested in the extremely important subject of phytoremediation, make sure you watch this video!
Watch above or you can also see it on the Greenroofs & Walls of the World™ Virtual Summit 2013 Playlist, where all of the Greenroofs.com’s videos are publicly available on our GreenroofsTV channel on YouTube, free of charge.
Patrick Carey is also the Moderator for second part, the “Theory & Field Studies: An Interview with Ian Balcom, Editor for the International Journal of Phytoremediation & Dr. Robert Cameron from Penn State – Chapter 2″ Panel Session. We’ll feature it as our next Flashback Friday #FBF, or you can watch it here.
Love the Earth, Plant a Roof (or Wall)!
