Recently more imbalances are observed in availability and quality of natural resources such as water, which is most precious as well as playing a vital role in the governance of entire natural as well as manmade ecosystem. Hence, the presence of water in good quality is extremely necessary for overall sustainable and eco-friendly development. The floating raft wastewater treatment system is most emerging sustainable and plant-based-eco-friendly method for wastewater treatment since it is totally plant based and there is no more initial requirement of inputs as well as there is no production of harmful by-products into the environment.
