Project: Application of constructed wetlands for the treatment of wastewater contamined by heavy metals

01-OCT-02 – 30-SEP-04

The behaviour of heavy metals in constructed wastewater treatment wetlands is investigated. Therefore, mass balances are developed which quantify the flows in the systems components: inflow of fluids and suspended matter, accumulation of sediments, plant growth, outflow, … This will lead to the development of a mathematic model, which will be used as a basis to investigate the factors determining the distribution of heavy metals in these systems, with experimental verification.
