Purpose HDS sediment is a type of solid waste produced when the high-concentration mud method (HDS) is adopted to treat acid wastewater from copper mines. It can rationally utilize sediment resources by using phytoremediation. Methods To reveal the effect of different phytoremediation on the heavy metal, enrichment capacity and microbial diversity of the HDS sediments of copper mines, in this experiment, the HDS sediments of a copper mine without phytoremediation were selected as the control

Results The results show that different phytoremediation can reduce the sediment's conductivity and adjust the sediment's pH value to the range suitable for plant growth. The BCFShoot and BTF values of Chinese white poplar to Cd and Zn and slash pine to Pb were both greater than 1. Conclusions As discovered from the bioconcentration coefficient and biotransport coefficient results, Chinese white poplar is an enriched plant of Cd and Zn, while slash pine is a plant full of Pb.
