Audience(s): Feedlot   Project Type(s): Demonstration

Plants on the floating islands act as hyper-accumulators, taking up excessive nutrients from the water and the air, creating clean water and cleaner air. The floating island technology is economical and immediately transferable to all types of wetlands and bodies of water. These plants help to control algae, excessive nutrient flooding and flooding caused by acts of nature.
