LIFEPOPWAT is a European project focusing on innovative technology based on constructed wetlands for treatment of pesticide contaminated waters. This new technology is more stable in operation, does not require ongoing attendance, and is cheaper than conventional methods. Moreover it can be deployed in remote locations where access to infrastructure may be limited. Technology called “Wetland+”, is based on integrated reactive zones with wetland as a polishing step. LIFEPOPWAT will deliver two prototypes, one at large pilot scale, as an exemplar at Hajek (CZ), and one as a field pilot Jaworzno (PL). Technology in the project is implemented in highly contaminated areas, but it will also successfully work in less contaminated areas.
