Vertical flow FBA system treating deicing fluids of Buffalo airport, New York

Castelluccio is one of the best hotspot of Central Italy, with its spellbound village and the great plateaus at 1400 m a.s.l. in the Sibillini mountain park. The new Constructed Wetland will treat the wastewater of Castelluccio village and tourism facilities, that progressively shift from less than 50 persons during winter up to 1000 or more persons during summer. The current treatment plant is inadequate to support this great variation. The new multistage CW system is constituted by a French scheme system of 1800 m2 followed by two parallel free water-pond system as polishing stage and recreational amenity (the pond will hold several rare aquatic plants typical of the Castelluccio plateau).

Pouembout : a 250 p.e. reed bed filter was created to replace a deficient waste stabilization pond.

Balhall: A two stage, 185 m2,Aerated saturated vertical flow reed bed system treating 5 m3/d of settled, secondary sewage.

"Zero Emission" would be the general goal for sustainability. Especially for industrial production. Tertiary treatment with constructed wetlands may be a proper solution for closing the loop. The new treatment wetland at Changshu Advanced Materials Industrial Park, Haiyu Town, Jiangsu Province, China, is not only reclaiming water. It is a stepping stone for humans searching nature and for endangered species within a widely industrialized zone. Designed as a beautiful park it provides recreational functions and serves as buffer stripe between chemical industries and urban areas.

The wetland visitor center with its terraces on the roof and near the water level reveals a stunning new perspective. Intersted visitors will be given looks inside of the wetland when entering the exhibition on the first floor. Accomplished with a water laboratory and wetland control room the Changshu AMIP wetland center is a perfect place for training and dissemination of environmental solutions.
