BioPlanta designs plants for the treatment of water from various sources, which is contaminated in different ways. BioPlanta has specialized knowledge in the design and operation of passive biological systems (Constructed Wetlands).
In addition to the application of domestic water treatment, BioPlanta, both in Germany and abroad, has convincingly proven the performance of Wetland systems through several special applications e.g. the hygienization of waste water, the removal of heavy metals and the degradation of explosives compounds.
One area of special expertise of BioPlanta is the engineering of passive water treatment systems for commercial and industrial application. Moreover, BioPlanta has planned several installations for the treatment of domestic and agricultural waste water of different sizes.
For ground water remediation, BioPlanta combines active hydraulic systems with passive on site treatment. The extracted ground water is cleaned in a Wetland system through a single or multi-phase process. The clean water can be re-injected into the ground or discharged into a surface water body
The waters from mining pits, tailings or lakes are often very acidic and contaminated with heavy metals and radio nuclides. The mine waters build up over long time periods and the contamination decreases gradually. Therefore, passive biological treatment with its low operational costs and maintenance requirements is the most economical and ecological solution. Constructed Wetlands treat mining waters for long terms efficiently and cost-effectively.
Seepage from landfills contains a variety of unwanted nutrients and harmful substances. Constructed Wetlands are an efficient, low-cost technology for the complete removal of these compounds. In combination with an activated carbon treatment, even non-biodegradable compounds can be removed.
The contaminated runoff from roads and production areas (like storage areas, places of waste pre-treatment etc.) has to be treated. Because the inflow is highly variable and the contamination low, Constructed Wetlands are a sustainable solution to treat runoff for long periods of time.
