Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review


A new kind of stormwater biofiltration treatment technology in Australia was introduced. The major research and progress on the stormwater biofiltration system's configuration, filler media selection, plant selection and other aspects of the purifying effect which were researched by Facility for Advancing Water Bio-Filtration (abbr FAWB) were summarized. Aimed at the stormwater biofiltration system's advantages in suspended solids, heavy metals and nutrient pollutants removal, and system configuration's characteristics for effectively store reuse-rainwater, the technical improvements were suggested for the stormwater biofiltration treatment system's research and reference design in China.
