LIFEPOPWAT is a European project that promotes innovative technology based on constructed wetlands for treatment of pesticide contaminated waters.
It is realized thanks with the contribution of the LIFE programme, the European Union’s financial instrument supporting environmental, nature conservation, and climate action projects, and Ministry of the Environment of the Czech Republic.
LIFEPOPWAT will provide a means of mitigating risks to water from HCH megasites using Wetland+ and the means by which this can be replicated across the EU and globally. We will benchmark its performance, ease of deployment and sustainability against conventional approaches. While we target megasites because of their importance, the approach is also down-scalable for smaller problem sites.
