Environmental Ecology and Ecological Remediation

Approval Year: 2003

Leader: Guoxiang Wang

Members: Jine Liu, Tingxi Zhang, Ruiming Han, Chenfei Shi, Xiaoguang Xu, Yanping Zhao




The Environmental Ecology and Ecological Remediation team consists of 1 professors, 3 associate professors, and 3 lecturers. In the recent 5 year, this group published more than 100 papers (more than 50 papers were published in SCI journals); 20 plus patents have been authorized; and more than 10 NSFC projects have been granted.

This team advanced the ecological remediation model based on “mosaic” of aquatic plants populations, and raised a “cascade purification, stepwise remediation and progressive amelioration” strategy of compulsory multilevel water quality promotion approach. The team also realized the complete sets of techniques comprising functional environmental materials-energy-saving aeration unit-ecological phytoremediation and complete sets of equipment, which had been used in Taihu catchment, internal river of Zhenjiang, Mochou Lake in Nanjing etc. This team also self-designed and built the first pilot test platform for ecological restoration of water environment in China, used for the study on artificial lake and related remediating technology.
