New way to use ornamentals: an eco-friendly technique to remove synthetic dyes

Phytoremediation emerges as an innovative and eco-friendly technique to remediate textile dyes with the use of various categories of plants. In recent years, ornamental plants emerge as more attractive and effective substitutes in comparison to edible plants for phytoremediation.

Regardless of aesthetic value, some ornamental plants can be grown to remediate the sites contaminated with dyes, heavy metals, pesticides, or other organic compounds. In this review, the focus lies on pioneer research on synthetic dye removal using ornamental plants and evaluate the phytoremediation capability of ornamental plants for the treatment of textile effluent. This paper also emphasized specific ornamental plants having high accumulation and tolerance ability for removal of dyes.

The mechanisms explored for the phytoremediation of dyes by ornamental plants have also been explained. This review will also be helpful for researchers for exploring more new ornamental plants in the phytoremediation technique.
