Plants that possessed bioaccumulation potential offered green remediation approach for the removal of such heavy metal contaminants. In this study, heavy metal accumulation potential of Jatropha curcas was studied in soil contaminated with 2.5% and 1% (w/w) used lubricating oil and enhanced with organic wastes [banana skin (BS), brewery spent grain (BSG) and spent mushroom compost (SMC)] for 180 days under room condition. At the end of 180 days, accumulation of Fe and Zn were recorded in J. curcas tissues (roots, stems and leaves) in all the treatments. 9.94 mg/kg to 26.34 mg/kg of Fe and 4.14 mg/kg to 8.45 mg/kg of Zn were recorded in the roots of J. curcas in soil contaminated with 2.5% oil.
