Extensive solutions for large areas

These solutions consist in establishing on existing soil bamboo plantations controlled by a rhizome barrier.

The extensive solutions work on existing soil and are based on the optimization of the interactions between the climate, the soil and the plants.

They are designed depending on the relationships between climate/soil/wastewater and on the discharge objectives.

This type of solutions run on solar energy and meets several different objectives:

  • The “zero discharge” performance into surface water environment
  • The compliance with discharge standards for infiltration water
  • The sequestration of CO2: an 1 hectare mature bamboo plantation absorbs approximately 30 tons of CO2 per year.
  • Biomass production

The PHYTOREM® extensive solutions can develop naturally: the same bamboo plantation can treat 50 to 100% of additional polluting load (hydrous and organic) in 5 to 10 years depending on the climate.
