Living Machines and Ocean Arks

Living Machines use biology and natural systems to effectively treat pollution. These techniques are called "bioremediation".

[Living Machines, Inc.] is a company that has designed and built large installations that use plants and microbes to treat raw sewage, toxic waste, polluted waterways, lakes and ponds, etc. There are many books and several articles about them, and it's fairly surprising to read how successful these systems can be in comparion with our traditional mechanical and chemical treatments of water. (One example: Living Machines can often produce drinking water out of raw sewage that is up to 5 times cleaner than municipal standards require for water that comes out of your tap!)

Their sister organization, [Ocean Arks International] is working to develop large floating "restorers" which can float on the open oceans as well as other waterways and clean up pollution.

Ocean Arks has a fantastic list of books, articles, and other resources at:
