The second Policy Brief is now online. In general, policy brief #2 deals with nutrient removal by floating wetlands. The results of absorbed nutrients from our pilot wetland in Germany give a more detailed inside. Additionally, recommendations highlight how the nutrient removal efficiency can be maximized.
The main aim of the policy briefs is to reach interested coastal municipalities around the Baltic Sea which would like to improve their local water quality using macrophytes. Policy brief #1 gave general information about floating wetlands and remediation of eutrophication. The next policy brief #3 will cover aspects about the biodiversity of floating wetlands.
