The effect of urbanization and industrialization led in many cases to the deterioration of the environment. During these processes, a lot of contaminants are released and they accumulate in the environment causing important risks. This study presents the technologies of decontamination of industrial sites using phytoremediation. The use of plants to decontaminate polluted sites is a close to nature method. Plants are able to accumulate important amounts of contaminants from soil by uptaking them by roots and transporting them to the aerial parts. Remediation of contaminated sites is a worldwide concern and contributes to the protection and improvement of the environment. One of the solutions is phytoremediation which is a new technology, innovative and with great perspectives. The aim of this study is to characterize the phytoremediation techniques.
