Phytoremediation: New Perspectives and Methods

Many thanks to Paul Thomas, President and Co-Founder of Applied Natural Sciences, for an informative talk on phytotechnologies as part of Design Workshop’s guest expert speaker series. A pioneer of plant-based methods to contain, reduce or remove contaminants in air, soil and water, Paul shared examples from a wide range of environmental circumstances. His fascinating talk highlighted Applied Natural Sciences’ patented TreeWell® technology that uses trees as solar pumps to target groundwater consumption at greater depths than is possible with traditional phytoremediation.
