Biohaven Tech­nol­ogy float­ing is­lands

Bloomberg Businessweek (North America) - - Technique -

● Biohaven Tech­nol­ogy’s MAN-MADE IS­LANDS mimic the way nat­u­ral is­lands CLEAN AND PU­RIFY WA­TER. “Of­ten, we clean wa­ter by putting in a chem­i­cal, or we’ll use one bac­te­rial strain,” Benyus says. “That’s not how it works in the nat­u­ral world. There is usu­ally a CON­SOR­TIUM OF OR­GAN­ISMS that work to­gether.” The is­lands, made of post­con­sumer plas­tic, sup­port plant life on top, with their root sys­tems ex­tend­ing into the wa­ter and cre­at­ing a habi­tat for SNAILS and other wa­ter-fil­ter­ing crea­tures.
