Until May 2020 we are running a crowed funding campaign on the Nutribute platform. With this voluntary financing scheme money will be collected for a floating island in Klaipeda, Lithuania.
The floating island of the total area of ~28 m2 would be installed in Dane River. For an island we will need a sum of ~10 000 euros (Biomatrix technology, Scotland), which we have within LiveLagoons project funds. In addition, we need to collect 2000 euros as maintenance costs for 3 years, which includes costs for mooring, planting, harvesting, replanting the damaged vegetation ect. The estimated impact of this island is ~9 kg of N and 0.5kg of P removal within 3ys period.
