Slide Show - Floating Island International

Floating Treatment Wetlands are the newest
advance in the established field of
constructed wetlands.
The BioHaven® Floating Treatment Wetland
is the “most innovative” constructed wetland
technology developed to date.

Unaffected by fluctuations in water levels
Versatility - simple, passive to active, dynamic
Zero-to-low power consumption
Solar, wind
Small footprint
Deep water applications
Intensified results
Modular – add more as needed
Additional values - habitat, aesthetic, economic
Aggressive aeration capability
Temperature homogenization
De-stratification ability
The Sequestration Pathways
The Sequestration Pathways - upward
Carbon is sequestered in terrestrial plant growth on top of the islands
The Sequestration Pathways - upward
Here you see gas coming off biofilm in a Leviathan runway
The Sequestration Pathways - downward
Carbon is sequestered in organic debris accumulating below the islands
The Sequestration Pathways - inward
Carbon is sequestered in roots and microbes growing within the islands
The Sequestration Pathways – outward – Floating Supermarket effect
Carbon is sequestered in the organisms that benefit from the islands
MBRCT Grant #1 Nutrient Removal - matrix only
Reduce Nitrate at a rate of 10,600 mg/(ft2*day)
Reduce Phosphate at a rate of 428 mg/(ft2*day)
Nitrify ammonia at a rate of 770 mg/(ft2*day)

“The aeration system is a
coiled tube that forms a disk
and air is pumped into the
tubes. The small bubbles
emitted from the disks aerate
the lake and cause an upward
draft to mix the lake.
This helped but still was not
This spring they installed six
250 foot Floating Islands and it
is believed that the
combination of aeration, mixing
and habitat for zooplankton is
what has made a huge
difference for managing the
algal blooms”.
