Innovation and Nature-based solutions
Environmental Waves has been granted the prestigious PT Global Water Awards 2018.
Environmental Waves pioneered the development and nationwide introduction of wastewater floating treatment wetlands, making NatureWaves® a unique and industry-leading solution.
The existence of several installations that have been operating uninterruptedly for several years, make NatureWaves® a Nature-based Solution with proven robustness and reliability.
Nature-based Solutions use nature and known natural processes to help provide viable solutions to protect the environment, such as wastewater treatment or ecosystem recovery.
In the warmer months there have been blooms of algae in rivers, lakes, ponds, canals, reservoirs or dams, more frequently and with an ever greater extent.
Whenever a bloom of algae occurs, we will also have the presence of cyanobacteria in lesser or greater concentration. There are several species of cyanobacteria, being extremely toxic and others non-toxic.
Environmental Waves offers an environmentally friendly technology that achieves up to 90% reduction in existing algae bloom and inhibits the growth of new ones.
The equipment is easy to install and operate, the electrical consumptions are insignificant.
