The semi-field research on exploring opportunity to use second-generation biofuel crop Miscanthus x giganteus for restoration of former military site in Kamenetz-Podilsky, Ukraine was carried out during two vegetation seasons. Despite high metal pollution of soil, in particular, by Fe, Mn, Ti, and Zr, no growth inhibition was observed. The concentrations followed pattern soil > roots > stems > leaves. For some metals as As and Pb the concentration in the above-ground parts were statistically comparable to zero. Generally, no correlations was observed between concentrations of metals is the soil and in the upper plant’s parts. The research confirmed the ability of Miscanthus x giganteus to grow on the military soils predominantly contaminated by heavy metals.

Concentrations of selected organochlorine pesticides (OCPs), i.e.,4,4’-dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane (p,p’-DDT), its metabolites (p,p’-DDE, p,p’-DDD), and hexachlorocyclohexanes (HCHs) have been determined in 100 soil samples collected from a contaminated site centered around a former storehouse in the Kyzyl Kairat village, Almaty region, Kazakhstan, that constitutes an exemplary case example. The OCPs were observed in all analyzed soil samples, with predominance of α-HCH, p,p′-DDD, p,p′-DDE and p,p′-DDT. Total concentrations ranged from 1.38 to 11,100 µg kg-1 with an average value of 1,040 µg kg-1 for DDT and its metabolites, and 0.1 to 438 µg kg-1 with an average value of 24 µg kg-1 for HCHs. The observed concentrations of the OCPs were found to be in agreement with previous studies and are rationalized in terms of the possible degradation pathways of DDTs and HCHs. Spatial distribution patterns of OCPs are elucidated by contour maps. Observed concentrations of the OCPs were used to evaluate the cancer risk to humans via ingestion, dermal contact and inhalation of soil particles. The cancer risk mainly occurs from ingestion, whereas dermal exposure contributes to a minor extent to the total cancer risk. The risk associated with inhalation was found to be negligible. The total cancer risk for the studied OCPs were found to be: p,p’-DDT ˃ p,p’-DDE ˃ p,p’-DDD ˃ α-HCH ˃ β-HCH ˃ γ-HCH.

The article analyzes the possibility of using highly productive bioenergetics phytoremediant
Miscanthus x giganteus, having an ability to grow on marginal and degraded of anthropogenic pollutants lands. It is of highly productive, non-food perennial plant with a high content of lignin and cellulose in stem. It is used in many countries for phytostabilisation polluted soils with persistent xenobiotics. The high productivity of biomass M.xgiganteus on the contaminated degraded lands can turn the phytoremediation technology into a profitable bioenergy industry in our country.

(2015) Miscanthus x giganteus as a new highly efficient phytoremediaion agent for improving soils contaminated by pesticidies reqidues and supplemented contaminants. Communications in Applied Biological Sciences, 80/3,  361-366 (IF=0,09)

Soil monitoring was accomplished at 76 former pesticide storehouses in Kazakhstan. Pesticides’ gas chromatography analysis was limited to the organochlorine pesticides DDT (p,p'-dichlorodiphenyltrichloroethane) and HCH (hexachlorocyclohexane), and their associated metabolites and isomers: 2.4’DDD (p,p'-dichlorodiphenyl dichloroethane); 4.4’DDD; 4.4’DDT; 4.4’DDE(p,p'-dichlorodiphenyldichloroethylene); α-HCH; β-HCH; and γ-HCH. The studies showed exceeding of Maximum Acceptable Concentration (MAC) by 10 times at soil samples taken at 24 former pesticide storehouses, and the basic pollutants were isomers of α HCH, β HCH and metabolite of 4.4’DDE, 4.4’DDT, supplemented by heavy metals. Monitoring data demonstrated the potential ecological danger and health risk posed by the sites, especially those located near populated areas. In order to eliminate the negative environmental and health effect it was proposed to use phytotechnology with second generation biofuel crop Miscanthus x giganteus. The technology applied directly at the contaminated area (in situ), helping to decrease costs and to reduce exposure from polluted sites. Plant shows good growing at the soil contaminated by pesticides during vegetation season.

Sailaukhanuly Physiological and biochemical characteristics of Miscanthus x giganteus in polluted conditions // Reports of the National Academy of Sciences of the Republic of Kazakhstan. Series of biological and medical – 2016. – V. 1, N. 313 – P. 102 – 109 (in Russian)

The article presents the results of a study of the basic adaptive physiological and biochemical indicators of the species of second-generation biofuel Miscanthus x giganteus of the stability to heavy metals. It is shown that the water absorption capacity, a change in the ratio of the concentration of chlorophyll a concentration of carotenoids, the activity of free proline in leaves are the main indicators of adaptive of the assimilation apparatus to stress. It was revealed that the species M.giganteus has phytoremediation potential and refers to excluders in relation to the heavy metals
