ABSTRACT
An analysis of energy plants from the point of view of their suitability for remediation of oil-contaminated territories has been carried out. Plantations of Salix viminalis L., Helianthus tuberosus L. and Medicago sativa L. were planted with the purpose of remediation of the territory where active oil production is conducted. The prospect of Salix viminalis and Helianthus tuberosus as an effective restorers of technogenically-transformed environment quality is revealed. Limiting factors restricting the growth of Salix viminalis on degraded soils are established - it is dry air and insufficient soil moisture. Medicago sativa is sensitive to the level of soil contamination by pollutants and can act as a phytoindicator of the environmental quality of oil-contaminated ecosystems.
