Green bridge technology approach is developed by Shristi Eco Research Institute (SERI), Pune. It is based on filtration, biodegradation and biosorption mechanisms by microbes and plants. It is a combination of Ecofert – which is an active microbial consortia, biomats, sand, gravels and plants. The stones/boulders act as a filtering material and prevent the solids from passing through the bridges. The green plants/flora grown at the banks of the water body also contributes towards the treatment of the wastewater.
- Designed specifically depending upon the requirements/conditions and flow of the wastewater to the rivers or lakes.
- The length of the bridge varies with the site specifications.
- Suitable for in situ treatment in rivers, flowing streams.
- No skilled labour is required for its operation and maintenance
