|Title:||Constructed wetlands for environmental pollution control : a review of developments, research and practice in Ireland||Authors:||Babatunde, A.O.
|Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/3142||Date:||Jan-2008||Abstract:||For the purpose of synthesizing a compendium of efforts aimed at environmental pollution control through the use of constructed wetlands systems (CWs) in Ireland, a detailed review of CWs was undertaken. Emphasis was placed on the diverse range of development, practice and researches on CWs technology, placing them in the overall context of the need for low-cost and sustainable wastewater treatment systems. The potential use of CWs in protecting estuarine quality within the current legislative framework is considered, as well as the emerging concept of integrated constructed wetlands (ICWs). In addition, an assessment of the efficiency of CWs in operation in Ireland towards abating environmental pollution was done, and compared with CWs operating in other European countries. The need for sufficient and appropriate data to assist in further development of CWs and modelling studies, and instilling confidence in the public is also highlighted.||Funding Details:||Other funder||Type of material:||Journal Article||Publisher:||Elsevier||Copyright (published version):||2008 Elsevier B.V.||Keywords:||Constructed wetlands; Dewatered alum sludge; Environment; Ireland; Phosphorus; Pollution control; Reed beds; Wastewater treatment||Subject LCSH:||Constructed wetlands--Ireland
