Caption: Chemical waste treatment using reed beds. Reed bed treatment systems are self-contained, artificially created wetland ecosystems. The mixture of aerobic and anaerobic soil conditions allow bacteria and fungi to flourish. These microbes can degrade, and render harmless, a wide range of organic chemicals and pollutants such as heavy metals. This bed is operated by ESU Services Limited for Air Products' chemical plant at Teesside, Cleveland, UK.
