Remediating soil and water with plants

She has just been awarded the 2022 European Inventor Award. Claude Grison, director of the ChimEco laboratory, has developed phytoremediation methods for decontaminating soil and water, using plants. Better still, the metals recovered serve as “green” catalysts to synthesise drugs or cosmetics. CNRS News takes a closer look at her technique based on the floating primrose-willow, an invasive exotic plant that proliferates in southern France.
