Cork Floating Island®

Developed by Bluemater in collaboration with Amorim Cork Composites, CORK FLOATING ISLAND® is specially designed for bioremediation in wetlands, rivers and dams but also used as phyto-based pond wastewater treatment and hydroponics. The support structure is made of cork, which makes it a sustainable and durable solution in addition to create an aesthetically pleasing aspect.

The CORK FLOATING ISLAND® is an exclusive product developed by Bluemater, in partnership with the cork innovation leader – Amorim Cork Composites. This floating islands are modular cork platforms designed specifically for the recovery of degraded ecosystems, in the treatment of wastewater, aquatic gardening, among other possible uses.

Floating islands are the most ecological solution to ensure a healthy balance of surface water, allowing the growth of plants on the surface of the water and thus restore riparian and palustrine ecosystems and biodiversity itself.

They can also be applied in pond wastewater treatment, replacing the plants that are traditionally planted in the bottom of the Phyto-WWTP tanks, avoiding the known problems of collapse of these systems, keeping them healthy and efficient.
