Development of a high throughput sequential phytoremediation system for sustainable water purification using endemic macrophytes
Expanded Title:The model HTSPS was constructed and tested in various configurations and at different xenobiotic loadings and flow rates. The results exceeded expectations with complete, or almost complete removal of all or most xenobiotics under conditions vastly more taxing than might be encountered in real-world application. The HTSPS is clearly a valid concept that may offer a simply, sustainable solution to specific xenobiotic pollution management while also having the potential to create revenue via the biomass production thereby encouraging maintenance and care of the system while creating employment. The biomass use as pellets into energy and job creation, still needs to be investigated
