Environmental remediation of the polluted industrial sites that became vacant because of industrial restructuring is an economic interest. One of the ways to achieve this is phytoremediation. Planting biomass on these fields results in -through their nutrient and water uptake -the accumulation of the heavy metal content of the soil in the plants, the biomass therefore becomes polluted. Before the utilization of these plants as fuels, the combustion conditions must be thoroughly examined. After determining...
