Developing a Self-driven Water-circulating Ecological Treatment System and Suspended Wetland for On-site Purification of Distribution-scattered, Small-scale Stagnated Water in Urban Regions
Dr. Wang noticed the serious risks to health and environment presented by pools of stagnant water in urban regions, and the lack of sustainable technologies to treat and manage this kind of special urban water habitat. This study proposes an innovative, on-site purification system involving a man-powered water circulation system. This man power could come from recreational facilities built on-site, demonstrating the potential of renewable energy use for environmental protection and the importance of citizen participation for clean cities.
