Solar-Powered NanoHavens are up to the biggest water quality challenges
Our solar-powered NanoHaven is a unit that can be installed singly or in multiples to treat Harmful Algae Blooms (HABs) and many other water problems. It consists of one or more state-of-the-art nanobubblers mounted on framed BioHaven modules, along with solar panels to provide operating power. It can be implemented in remote, off-grid spots, wastewater lagoons and ponds and lakes of all shapes and sizes with an appropriate water depth. Low-growing hyperaccumulator plants can be added to facilitate the removal of extreme pollutants.
NanoHaven combat units are an accelerated, one-time treatment system, requiring infrequent maintenance.
Why A NanoBubbler?
BioHaven Floating Islands passively remove the nutrients that cause HABs. Adding standard aeration, such as an air-blower, improves their performance fourfold. Nanobubblers thoroughly aerate an entire water column from top to bottom. Nanobubbles deliver far superior oxygen saturation than standard aerators: we expect by an order of magnitude.
Nanobubblers benefit from the surface-area provided by BioHaven matrix, which augments the lake biology and brings microbial processes to the oxygen source. They also benefit from the mobility provided by the solar-powered NanoHaven, which does not restrict them to the shore as would a grid-based power source.
A solar-powered NanoHaven:
takes the nanobubbler to where it is most needed
contributes massive surface area to expand the treatment
supports solar panels to power the nanobubbler
provides an exceptionally cost-effective treatment option.
Combining BioHaven and nanobubbles is a game-changer in preventing and treating Harmful Algae Blooms and other pressing water quality issues.
Heavy metals, PFAS, petroleum... biological removal, mechanical sequestration and phytoremediation work together to remove most contaminants of concern. Hyperaccumulator plants are our secret weapon for removing contaminants that even wetlands can't, such as chlorides.
More On Nanobubbles
Nanobubble performance data (from supplier - reference available on request). a. Chlorophyll Value - Chl-a (μg/litre) fell to 200 from the initial 910 and improved by 78%. b. Total Phosphorus (mg/litre) decreased to 0.064 from the initial 0.87, achieving an improvement rate of 93%. (<0.05 mg) c. COD (Chemical Oxygen Demand) (mg/litre) decreased to 8 from the original 180, achieving 96% improvement. d. TSS (Total Suspended Solids) (mg/litre) decreased to 8 from the initial 280, achieving an improvement of 97%. e. Transparency achieved 1m or more as initially targeted.
The NanoHaven measures 285-square-feet in total, comprised of BioHaven modules framed together. It supports the nanobubbler array and solar panels. Because nano-bubbles stay in the water for two weeks, no batteries are required.
It may be planted with low-growing hyperaccumulator plants that provide exceptional root mass to enhance the treatment surface area without occluding the solar panels. The performance of the plants may be further enhanced by the application of patented endophytes.
The unit is typically anchored with helical anchors driven into the bottom structure of the lake (where permitted). Alternative anchors include dead-weight anchors and tethers, and occasionally pilings.
The NanoHaven is a turnkey system. It will be assembled on-site and launched by a team of qualified professionals.
