when certain plants grow in areas of low-grade metal ores, often copper, they absorb the metal and are later burned so that the metal can be extracted from the ash. this is a more economical way of obtaining metal when there would not be a lot to be found therefore, electrolysis being expensive and unnecessary.
phytomining is the planting (and subsequent harvesting) of vegetation that will selectively concentrate specific metals from the soil into their tissues
It uses plants that naturally accumlate one or more heavy metals at 100 times or more the normal level. They are called hyperaccumulator plants , and there are more than 400 species.
energy can be produced when the plants are burned, plants will remove C02, less expensive :)
hope i helped

nickel and thallium are extracted by phytomining. nickel was the first metal ever to be extracted by this process. boobs are cool
Phytomining basically means in order to reduce metal contamination and that the metal is economically expenisve or useful in some way to extract it would amend their soil with phytoaccumulating plants.
Phytomining is the production of a metal crop using high-biomass plants. These crops of high concentrations of desired metals are cultivated, harvested and delivered to a furnace to produce energy and/or usable resources.
The advantage of phytomining is that it saves using high grade ores. However the disadvantage is that this is a long process.
by getting a plant and using it to get the metal closer to the surface
They are cheaper alternatives to processes such as electrolysis and are better for the environment
