Our willow filtering plantation process
THE NUMBER OF WASTEWATER LITERS THAT A WILLOW CAN TRANSPIRE IN A DAY
The adv antages of the process
Partial or complete reduction of the effluent volume by evapotranspiration. Vegetalized treatment process with l ow capitalization and operating costs. Circular economy: Valorization of the e ffluent r esources by the production of high added – value products with willow biomass . Carbon sequestration in willow biomass.
Plantation and process design
- Physical and chemical characterization
- Effluent characterization
- Treatability tests
Planting area p reparation : R emoval of e xisting vegetation cover and soil leveling and preparation W illows mechanical plantation Plantation establishment follow – up: monitoring, weeding, cutback, fertilization, etc.
Irrigation system installation
Pumping station installation Implementation of environmental monitoring instrumentation
Technical and environmental monitoring
Process maintenance and plantation monitoring E nvironmental monitoring : Soil pore water quality measurement Characterization of agronomic and chemical properties of willows Seasonal monitoring of biomass yield Quantification of nutrient and metal uptake by willows Quantification of carbon sequestration by willows
Willows harvesting and valorization
Mechanical harvesting of willow stems or chipped wood Production of noise barriers with willow stems or horticultural ramial chipped wood
