Abstract

Constructed wetlands are recognized as eco-friendly technologies for treating wastewater with very low energy demand. The microbial activity is well-known as crucial in the CW treatment process but potentially responsible for releasing greenhouse gases (GHG). The clogging phenomenon is the most critical management problem that afflicts the CW lifespan and could affect carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions and the vegetation development that is directly involved with GHG release.
