Green Island / clean the river

Green Island
Green Island

Many rivers have eutrophication and sewage problems due to the excessive development of the upstream. Hence, we came up with a method using bamboo to create a hexagonal structure, which can be connected with other modules, and add the stone filter material with the bamboo woven. After layers of filtration can also make the water quality cleaner. Planting vetiver grass above reduces the nitrogen and phosphorus in the water and improves algal Bloom and red tide phenomenon in the downstream area. And after a certain, the harvest can also be used as fragrance raw materials while achieving a sustainable environment.
