FLOATING ISLAND TECHNOLOGY
The use of wetlands for bioremediation with the goal of capturing and removinge pollutants and nutrients is widely practiced around the world. Floating wetlands have been shown to improve water quality in stormwater reservoirs, as well as treat sewage and other industrial pollution.
By absorbing nutrients through their root system, artificial floating wetlands stimulate biological water filtration processes. This phenomenon relays on the resident plants and microbes which take up the nutrients, absorb them, and convert into organic and inorganic sediments. Alternatively, the organisms can convert the pollutants into gas by volatilization. Aquatic plants, both above water and immersed, take up and remove these elements from the sediment and the water body and assimilate them into plant material.
