York researchers develop pollution-busting plants to clean up contaminated land

... plants, giving them the ability to biodegrade the pollutant more efficiently. Professor Bruce said: "We have taken that activity from the bacteria and put it in plants with large amounts of biomass. A tree, for instance, is effectively a big pump, seeking out water, and if we can redeploy the enzyme which de...
