Abstract

Green walls are increasingly being considered as a suitable greywater treatment technology. Nevertheless, until now there have been no clear recommendations for the use of effective lightweight media in greywater treating green walls. Previous studies of potentially suitable growing media have suggested that a combination of perlite and coco coir might be the most effective for these novel systems. However, there is no clear understanding of what proportion of perlite and coir should be used and how different mixes would affect greywater treatment. This work tested the hydraulic and pollutant removal performance of six different perlite and coco coir media mixes in an unvegetated column expe..
