Constructed wetlands

Constructed wetlands

  • Wastewater irrigation of Salix Plantations - Hedemora Energy

    Type: 
    Product
    Objective:

    The largest and northern most full-scale system for wastewater irrigation of Salix plantations in Sweden.
    The local community in Hedemora has long experience in producing biofuel from Salix plantations. The cooperation between Hedemora Energi AB and local farmers has resulted in irrigation of 75 acres of Salix Plantations. The local farmers in the project are guaranteed to sell their biofuel to the local municipal heating plant. As a result the project is contributing to the local production and consumption.

  • Industrial waste water treatment

    Type: 
    Product

    Ofra Aqua Plants Ltd specializes in different implementations of Phytoremediation (Constructed wetlands) for wastewater river and lake management public ponds polluted wells industry and agriculture and for the purification of water for swimming pools.

  • Magnetic Colloid Petroleum Oil Clean-Up of Surface Depth and Shores

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Challenge: Oil spill contamination cannot be cleaned rapidly and completely from varied environments. Technology: Ferrofluids are colloidal dispersions of magnetic nanoparticles that can be manipulated with an external magnetic field. This invention proposes to apply ferrofluidic principles to the mitigation of oil contamination of solids (wetlands) water surfaces and water sub-surfaces. The particle size surfaces and dispersants can all be optimized for stabilizing oil removal collectability and water purification.

  • INDC of Uganda

    Type: 
    National Plan
    Type of National plan:
    Country:
    Uganda

    For mitigation, Uganda is to focus on implementation of a series of policies and measures in the energy supply, forestry and wetland sectors. In the business-as-usual (BAU) scenario the estimated emissions in 2030 will be 77.3 Million tons of carbon dioxide equivalent per year (MtCO2eq/yr). The estimated potential cumulative impact of the policies and measures could result in approximately 22% reduction of national green house gas emissions in 2030 compared to business-as-usual.

  • INDC of Russian Federation

    Type: 
    National Plan
    Type of National plan:
    Country:
    Russia

    Limiting anthropogenic greenhouse gases in Russia to 70-75% of 1990 levels by the year 2030 might be a long-term indicator, subject to the maximum possible account of absorbing capacity of forests.

  • Constructed Wetlands Integration of Natural Biological Systems in waste water treatment

    Type: 
    Product

    The project’s main objective is to integrate the NBSs into constructed wetlands to purify contaminated water soil and air at times simultaneously. This is made possible by having each system created of diverse natural biotic and abiotic components using a variety of plants and sediments selected for their physical and chemical properties and using varying water flows. The systems are never a standard solution but tailored for each case therefore adaptable/replicable all over the world.

  • Waterharmonica: natural constructed wetlands to convert tretaed wastewater into a usable water

    Type: 
    Product
    Technology:

    Natural purification systems have already been used for years in The Netherlands to improve the quality of waste water before discharge or reuse. The first basic ideas design for the ‘Waterharmonica’ as the link between the Water Chain and the Water System were rewarded by the Foundation for Applied Water Research (STOWA) on its 25th anniversary in 1996. Since then Waterharmonicas have been constructed in various places in The Netherlands firstly on a small scale but now also on a large scale.

  • Agriculture and climate change: Direct and indirect mitigation through tree and soil management

    Type: 
    Publication
    Publication date:

    Many opportunities exist for mitigating greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions through better management of trees and soils. There is potential for both direct mitigation through better management of carbon in agricultural landscapes and indirect mitigation through reduced pressure on carbon stored in forests, peatlands, and wetlands. Effectively harnessing these opportunities will take bold action in climate change negotiations.
