Figure 4. Several factors would accelerate phytoremediation technology. The prime being: genetic engineering and production of transgenics having tolerance and metal accumulation ability for use in phytoremediation, facilitating the factors that would influence the metal bioaccumulation coefficient which inturn will depends upon heavy metal availability in the soil, absorption, transport and sequestration etc, and development of low cost technologies for chelate-induced hyperaccumulation.
