BioHaven® Floating Island  :  mimicking wetlands

BioHaven® Floating Islands are an advanced form of floating treatment wetlands. Manufactured using non-toxic recycled PET plastic and vegetated with native plants, BioHaven® Floating Treatment Wetlands float on top of the water, providing habitat for local birds and animals. Underneath the surface, a remarkable and dynamic process takes place. Microbes responsible for breaking down waste and nutrients produce a sticky biofilm which grows on the BioHaven® FTW’s matrix as well as the roots hanging beneath the island. Mimicking natural wetlands, they provide a unique and cost effective solution for Habitat Enhancement, Land Restoration, and Water Quality Improvement.
