Testing and Upscaling Phytoremediation Technology in Real-World ConditionsIntegrated Water Management

This technology deployment will establish and evaluate phytoremediation technology and explore the social acceptability of this technology by local communities.

Four sites have been targeted for this demonstration, two in Canada and two in India. This project will be tested in real-world conditions and demonstrates the balance between discovery and application-based research to solve the problem of water contamination in both countries. Important progress is being made in developing eco-friendly, smart, and cost-effective water monitoring devices and hydrophytoremediation technology in an effort to build healthy and resilient communities in Canada and India.
