Urea plant generates huge amount of nitrogen-rich wastewater. Excessive nitrogen
in water is toxic to human and aquatic organisms and induces eutrophication that
damages water ecosystem and affects adversely economic activities. Among all
available technologies, phytoremediation is considered as an eco-friendly technique for
nitrogen removal. Reed plants (Phragmites australis) are conventional
phytoremediation plants which have the disadvantages of invasive nature, limited
nitrogen removal and regular harvesting requirement.
