Tech/Engineering / water pollution
|French term or phrase: plateau tellurien/plateau absorbant|
|Plateau tellurien and plateau absorbant are synonyms. It is used to prevent water pollution from spent water at a uranium storage site. I have found a definition in French, but I need to know if there is an English term for it. The definition is: Cuvette étanche, remplie en surface de terre sur laquelle sont cultivés des végétaux qui sont censés éliminer par évapotranspiration les liquides qui sont envoyés dans cette cuvette.|
|planted soil filter|
The goal of the design, which includes a preclarifier, planted soil filter and a secondary purge step, is the optimization of attainable water quality. This project is a part of a cooperative research on the subject of "Planted soil filters as a biotechnology process" and will be carried out in partnership with several institutes in Germany.
