The project brings together an Indo-European consortium of 36 organizations [14 Indian and 22 European] belonging to research institutions, universities, large industries and SMEs.

Success of the Project : The project has shown remarkable success by aiding the construction of wetlands containing plant species such as Canna indica, lemon grass (Cymbopogon), napier (Pennisetum perpureum X Pennisetum americarnum), para grass (Urochloa mutica), typha (Typha latifolia), water hyacinth (Eichhornia crassipes), water lettuce (Pistia stratiotes) and a weed species Ageratum Conyzoides.
