Extensive industrial and agricultural development of the 20th century is one of the causes of wide-spread contamination of the environment by organic pollutants such as polyaromatic hydrocarbons, pesticides and explosive compounds. Nowadays, apart from traditional remediation techniques involving mechanical treatment, we are facing new opportunities of utilizing microorganisms (bioremediation) and plants (phytoremediation) to contain, transform or remove toxic elements present in soils, water and, to some point, in atmosphere. Great diversity of living organisms and application of genetic engineering make bio- and phytoremediation even more attractive.
