Abstract

Water is a scarce resource in this millennium, especially clean water. Reverse osmosis (RO) technology is widely applied to achieve this goal. But, reverse osmosis waste water (ROWW) cannot be further utilized, due to the presence of a high concentration of salts, heavy metals, and pollutants of feed water. The solution to this problem may lie in employing plants for this very purpose that is phytoremediation. Phytoremediation converts this waste water into usable water with the help of plants. This is an eco-friendly technique that decontaminates the waste water in a very economical way. This mini-review thus, emphasizes on quality improvement of RO waste water through plant-based techniques with a special focus on recent studies carried out in this area. Keywords: Phytodegradation, Phytoextraction, Phytoremediation, Phytovolatilization, Reverse osmosis (RO), Reverse osmosis waste water (ROWW), Rhizodegradation.
