mixed wastewater reedbed systems

The wastewater was highly contaminated with amines and phenols (COD up to 5000mg/l). The facility used a batch processing method, which meant the water was highly variable, and very difficult to treat by conventional methods.  Starting with demonstration that soil based reed beds were the ideal solution as they were versatile enough to handle the
