The invention of the BioHaven floating wetland concept (for more information please search this blog) has revolutionized the ability to create extremely-effective wetland functions in new or existing waterbodies.  DH Environmental, the South African distributor of Biohavens, has developed an allied-product that utilizes the plugs of island material which we remove when we create the planter holes – BioBag has arrived!

BioBags are netting bags filled with BioHaven plugs, weighted and suspended beneath a marine float.  These bags provide a massive area of submerged biofilm support, which can be simply floated into a pond or dam experiencing high levels of nutrients – resulting in excessive plant or algal growth.  The excess nutrients and/or other micropollutants will be absorbed into the biofilm that will form on the matrix of material in the bags!

BioBags provide an instant, out-of-sight “nutrient-sink” solution which can be deployed alone or in combination with floating islands.  BioHavens are made from 100% recycled materials and the BioBag concept creates a ‘zero-waste’ solution!
