Water Quality

Improving Water Quality

Biomatrix Water Floating Ecosystems have been specifically developed to provide a modular 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.


Improve Water Quality In:

Eutrophic Lakes & Ponds

Nutrient Laden Rivers

Open Wastewater Canals

Water Features, Ponds & Pools

An Engineered Ecology

Our technologies combine 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.

What Can Be Treated?

  • BOD/ COD Biological / Chemical Oxygen Demand
  • Nitrogen
  • Phosphorous
  • Suspended Solids
  • Algae / Cyanobacteria
  • Pathogens
  • Metals, Copper, Zinc, Iron

Standard Treatment Elements



Plant Roots

Planting Media

Additional Treatment Elements

Biofilter Media


How Treatment Works

  • Maximising Biofilm Surface Area.
  • Increasing direct contact between plant roots and water.
  • Increasing flow through and contact time.
  • Extending Biofilm surface are with the Biofilter Media.

Treatment Processes

  • Competition
  • Nitrification / Denitrification
  • Biological Breakdown /Oxidation
  • Respiration / Carbon Cycling
  • Bio-complexing
  • Dynamic Sorption
  • Aquatic Food Chain Enhancement
  • Bio-Filtration
  • Precipitation


Main Benefits

  • Increased Water Clarity
  • Reduced Algae and Cyanobacteria Growth
  • Reduced Nutrients Levels
  • Mitigation of Odours
  • Increased Resilience to Shock Loads
