Abstract

This paper presented an applied phytotechnology to increase the diversity of technology in solving complex problems of environmental sanitation. The selected technology was prospective for application in the tropics and the countries bordering the sea. Various studies had been collected, selected and evaluated to formulate the important and meaningful issues to management and environmental protection. The basic principle of phytotechnology was the management of materials and energy in a loop system, which was based on the basic theory of all life activities. Applied phytotechnology included quality management of air, water and land; management of sanitation practices, and reduction the impact of sea water overflow due to global warming to the mainland. Quantitative figures were shown for the practical implementation and emergency measures. Framework for scientific study was prepared for the further research direction, which would be suitable for the implementation according to local conditions.
