Production wetlands' tests and evaluation

Actor: Trelleborg municipality   ●   Year: 2016   ●   Address: Algatan 13, Trelleborg, Sweden, Sweden

Trelleborg has built pilot production wetlands in the drainage area of two streams with high nutrient loads.© Trelleborg


In one of the areas, Albäcken, twelve production wetlands with different plants and water levels are evaluated to see how much nitrogen and phosphorus the different setups will reduce from the water, and how much biomass the different ponds will produce. In the other production wetland, in Tullstorpsån, the focus will be to test how to harvest the production wetlands.


Trelleborg has among the most productive agriculture soils in Europe. Production wetlands can be an incentive to restore wetlands in highly productive areas, valuable products can be produced and nutrients can be recycled from the water back to arable land.
