Improving Water Quality

Biomatrix Water Floating Ecosystems have been specifically developed to provide a concentrated natural solution to improve water quality.  The Solution harnesses the power of nature to provide a long-term sustainable water quality management solution, which uses no chemicals and which gets better with time as the system grows.

Our technology combines the latest developments in ecological engineering with new biofilm research and traditional wastewater treatment processes.  Whole system engineered ecologies provide an energy efficient, low life cycle cost treatment solution.
