07 Feb 2020 Artificial Wetlands: emulating Nature’s perfection
Every year on February 2, World Wetlands Day is celebrated to commemorate the date of the signing of the Ramsar Convention, in the Iranian city of that name on February 2, 1971. Wetlands are the most productive ecosystems in the world and also the most threatened.
The use of artificial wetlands for the treatment of contaminated water can emulate the natural processes characteristic of these ecosystems, reducing the impact of human activities on the environment and mitigating the effects of climate change.
Artificial Wetlands are systems designed to reproduce the processes of pollutant removal by imitating the processes that take place in natural wetlands.
EDAFOTEC designs wetlands with the joint action of artificial soils made with the area’s own waste, within the framework of the Circular Economy. Our experience in the design of these systems both in the mining and in the industrial sector has allowed the treatment of contaminated water using biological techniques, without any type of energy requirements.
