Oksana Coban explores within ADVOCATE Project the role of aerobic and anaerobic microbial processes for the removal of ammonium from contaminated groundwater in constructed wetlands (CWs) downstream of the chemical industrial area in Leuna, Germany. In this video she shows us an overview about how CWs works.
