Generating knowledge on biofilters’ ability to reduce nitrogen leaching

New research results indicate that constructed wetlands with biofilters can be effective measures to reduce nitrogen emissions from field drains to the aquatic environment. The Ministry of Environment and Food of Denmark are now supporting further research in the area.
