Purpose of Project

During the remediation of the remains of former uranium mining and processing, the treatment of water contaminated with radioisotopes and heavy metals is a task of high priority. BioPlanta has undertaken extensive investigations into the treatment of water from the pit Pöhla-Tellerhäuser (Germany). The results of investigations with pilot scale constructed wetlands provided data about the treatment efficiency under varying hydraulic and material load, variability of the efficiency, remobilization of pollutants and the distribution of removed contaminants among the wetland media (gravel, plants).
