Working principle


Reed beds are engineered systems that provide biological aerobic treatment by attached growth. The wetland plants leak small amounts of oxygen out through their roots creating an ideal environment for the growth of micro-organisms (bacteria) on the surface of the gravel and plant roots. Alternate supply makes it possible to regulate biomass growth, and for bacteria, to self-regulate during non-supply phases. Macrophytes (Aquatic Plants) play an important role in the treatment of water. They directly take up nutrients, pump oxygen into the substrate and provide a food source for the micro-organisms responsible for breaking down pollutants.

Reed bed systems as we design them can withstand significant variation of both hydraulic and organic content.

Our objectives to meet are in all cases reliability of hydraulics, simplicity to operate and maintain & resilience of the system itself.
