Power Plants: Phytoremediation Gardens

This research project involves UrbanGrowth NSW Development Corporation working collaboratively with the University of Newcastle, the University of Technology Sydney, the University of New South Wales and Landcom.

This research project is applying phytoremediation techniques at White Bay Power Station through the design and planting of a series of remediation gardens. This project demonstrates how phytoremediation can be used to rehabilitate and restore balance to contaminated soil. It combines both innovative science with a unique activation opportunity.

A literature review of urban phytoremediation approaches has been completed, including international case studies and the design for the first garden which was planted in August 2018.
