BioHaven Studies

Welcome to the Case Study Library

This page is being updated. If you don’t see what you’re looking for, please check back later.  Thanks for visiting!

Over the years, a team of professionals and associates throughout the Floating Island International network have compiled data in regards to the performance and efficacy of our BioHaven line of products.

 

The BioHaven floating treatment technology has been extensively tested by experts worldwide in a variety of applications from water quality, habitat management, stormwater treatment, wave remediation, nutrient uptake, and so much more.  Please feel free to use this section of our website to become more familiar with the BioHaven technology and our capabilities.
