The inception of the Urban Biofilter was provoked by an extreme lack of air, water, and soil remediation efforts taking place in the West Oakland area. Although it is not constrained to West Oakland, much of the work happening right now is through collaboration with the Oakland Ports.
“The Urban Biofilter purifies waste to improve quality of life in inner-cities. A micro-industrial forestry project grown with waste water on brownfields, the Urban Biofilter bioremediates water, soil and air while shielding residents from industry and transportation routes and beautifying neighborhoods. By valuing ecosystem services the project enables a green economy that serves environmental justice.”
