Objectives: The purpose of this study is to identify plant species that are effective in phytoremediation based on their ability to withstand various hardiness zones. This study also intends to clarify how to choose plant species appropriate for phytoremediation based on those species’ capacity to adapt to various hardiness zones. The end goal of this project is to develop effective phytoremediation strategies that can help to mitigate the negative environmental consequences of wastewater. Methods: The USDA Hardiness Zone Map and literature on phytoremediation were used to obtain data from a variety of sources. Data analysis to find plant species that can flourish in various hardiness zones and their potential for application in phytoremediation processes. Findings: In various hardiness zones, many plant species, including but not limited to cattails, water hyacinths, and duckweeds, demonstrate extraordinary potential for phytoremediation. Due to their innate ability to absorb and store toxins, these species are able to efficiently remove pollutants from wastewater. Novelty: This study offers important information on choosing plant species for phytoremediation depending on how well they adapt to various hardiness zones. The data can be utilized to create efficient phytoremediation strategies that reduce the adverse environmental consequences of wastewater. The current study is significant since it assesses the suitability of several plant species for phytoremediation based on their tolerance of various hardiness zones. To assist reduce the negative environmental consequences of wastewater, efficient phytoremediation solutions can be developed using the data from this study.
