Purification of discharge water in greenhouse cultivation at Microflor

A multi-stage reed bed was created in Lochristi near Microflor to purify the drainage water from the greenhouses. Microflor grows orchids there and the discharge water that was discharged contains many nutrients (nitrogen and phosphorus). Rietland designed a purification system to remove nitrogen and phosphorus in order to safely discharge the discharge water into surface water. The system is monitored by Ghent University.
