Floating Islands

  • Floating Islands and Phyto-Remediation

    • Design of Floating Island Systems: Our team has been working with floating island systems for the past 4 years to create effective systems to remediate contaminants in water. Our current work has invovled research into heavy metals and nutrient remediation of storm ponds, and settling ponds. Our advantage is that we understand the species of plants that grow effectively in Canadian climates and can pair the right plant species with the habitat and contaminants in question to ensure the most effective removal of contaminants from water in a passive and cost effective manner
