Non-Vegetated Filtration Systems

In dense urban environments or in situations where very high flow-through rates are required, non-vegetated filtration systems can offer very high performance whilst maintaining a very small footprint.  These filtration systems can also be appropriate where a highly-engineered treatment system is required, delivering high levels of treatment consistency and minimising losses due to evapotranspiration.

This group of projects is developing a range of cutting-edge filtration technologies based around advanced media combinations.  The research not only aims to develop optimal technologies for treatment of water for both human and environmental purposes, but aims to develop technologies which minimise lifecycle costs (both financially and in terms of materials use).
