Wastewater-fed aquaculture Otelfingen, Switzerland : influence of system design and operation parameters on the efficiency of nutrient incorporation into plant biomass

A wastewater-fed, partly indoor aquaculture plant consisting of 36 basins with a total area of 360 m, charged with effluent from a methanization plant processing organic household waste (Kompogas

Mechanistic approach to phytoremediation of water

Investigating the Performance of a Laboratory-Scale Ecological System to Treat Dairy Wastewater

The potential for an ecologically engineered treatment system to improve water quality is supported by the effective treatment of wastewater by existing systems such as Living Machines and treatment

Phosphate Removal and Recovery from Wastewater by Natural Materials for Ecologically Engineered Wastewater Treatment Systems

Eutrophication due to excess loading of phosphorus (P) is a leading cause of water quality degradation within the United States. The aim of this study was to investigate P removal and recovery with

Waste Equals Energy: Decentralised AnaerobicWaste Treatment And Local Reuse Of Return Flows

In the built environment, the distance created between the (environmental) problem and its solution leads to more and more complexity. The process of changing the interrelated public and private

Vermifiltration Ecological Treatment for the Re‐Use of Food Waste Digestate

A vermifiltration ecological treatment system (VETS) was developed to treat bio‐digested food waste and create nitrate‐rich fertilizer. Conventional processes to treat digester effluent are typically



Natural Systems for Waste Management and Treatment

Biologically-based systems for handling waste are gathering international attention as a more reliable, less costly alternative to energy intensive mechanical systems, and are being used by

Wastewater treatment with complementary filter feeders: A new method to control excessive suspended solids and nutrients in stabilization ponds

The technique proposed herein maintains coexistence of zooplankton and filter-feeding fish by excluding the fish from part of the water column by reducing algal biomass by as much as 99% compared to controls.

The Role of Inorganic Redox Systems in Controlling Reduction in Paddy Soils

The unique water regime of paddy soils affects the reactivity of inorganic redox systems which usually remains inactive in drained soils. Oxygen, the inorganic nitrogen compounds, and sometimes

Phytoextraction: the use of plants to remove heavy metals from soils.

The high metal accumulation by some cultivars of B. juncea suggests that these plants may be used to clean up toxic metal-contaminated sites in a process termed phytoextraction.
