C-7 Canal Nutrient Density Solution

C-7 Canal Nutrient Density Solution


The canals of Miami Dade are suffering from excess nutrient pollution, a pressing environmental issue, which leads to harmful algae blooms and the degradation of water quality. Existing nutrient removal methods are costly, inefficient, and often unsustainable. Filtrum Engineering has pioneered a scalable solution in the form of a tandem treatment system which uses cattail plants and magnetic hydrolysis to feasibly remove up to 30% of these excess nutrients.

Community Benefit

Filtrum Engineering is introducing a novel solution that can be implemented in various contexts of water treatment.  In this design, the new technology has the capability to be efficient, scalable, and environmentally friendly, ensuring the long-term health and sustainability of the C-7 canal.
