The objective of this technical visit is for possible research collaboration on water treatment aspects of artificial wetland using nutrient removal plants such as water mimosa (Neptunia oleracea), red stem flag (Thalia geniculata), water hyacinth, duckweed (Lemna minor), vetiver grass (vetiveria zizanioides), water lily (Nymphaea) and water spinach (Ipomoea forskal). Most of these plants are able to reduce the pollutant naturally and improve the quality of water. It is claimed that the changes for water quality improvement using this treatment is more than 90%.
