Active Water Treatment Systems – Floating Islands, Floating Reedbeds – Reed Rafts
Terraqua Environmental Solutions specialise in water quality management in line with the objectives of the Water Framework Directive. Our products include passive floating landscapes, advanced water treatment and water recycling systems. The water quality solutions we offer combine biomimicry and design innovation of outstanding quality and attractive design at competitive prices.
The Terraqua system from Biomatrix, is an engineered floating ecology designed to optimise powerful water treatment processes. The Biomatrix solutions combine the latest developments in ecological engineering with new biofilm research and traditional wastewater treatment processes. Water Quality is enhanced with an energy efficient, low life-cycle cost treatment solution from Biomatrix.
The two types of Floating Islands available from Terraqua ES are designed to enhance water quality by either passive or active means.
Bird nesting islands
Floating reedbeds / rafts
Active reactor islands
Floating active edge
Active edge filters
Integrated active and landscape water restoration park
Biomatrix water treatment systems are available in a range of sizes with different shapes and configurations. The Biomatrix unit is constructed around a buoyant framework, which supports multiple types of treatments in differing biological zones. Submerged plant root mass provides a live substrate that continually re-inoculates the water with beneficial bacteria.
The D-Series Active Island Reactor is an engineered floating water treatment system, which provides enhanced natural processes to improve water quality. A high strength buoyant structure supports attractive plantings of emergent aquatic plants. Fine bubble aeration below the island increase oxygen levels and generate high volumes of water circulation.
Floating Active Edge is structurally engineered, floating, planted, waterway-edging system. The system is ideally suited to waterfront restoration projects. Benefits include landscape value, water quality enhancement and fish habitat creation. The system compliments the restoration of canals and waterways with limited biodiversity, such as canals with concrete or sheet pile steel embankments.
