Floating Islands combine many technologies with naturally occurring processes to create a passive water treatment for a variety of contaminants. The phytoremediation generated from the vegetation removes excess nutrients, total suspended solids, and metals from the water column. Additionally, the platform itself generates a biofilm that removes contaminants from the water column.
The Floating Island technology utilizes phytoremediation and bioremediation to reduce the amount of contaminants found in a water system. This passive form of treatment is fantastic for treating water systems with excess nutrients such as nitrogen and phosphorous. It is equally effective in removing fine sediments and suspended solids that migrate through a water system.
Floating Islands can remain in situ year-round and require very little maintenance. Secure them to a water system bed or tether them to the shore. Custom sizes are available to fit your needs.
