What is it?
To give new life to the lagoons of Maricá and pave the way to extend the experience to other parts of Brazil and the world. It is with this idea that Lagoa Viva was born, in partnership with the Federal Fluminense University (UFF).
The program aims to revitalize the lagoons using live microorganisms, a method that has already been successfully applied in various countries. And the results have already shown: within a year, there has been a 200% increase in the region’s fauna and flora, as well as an improvement in water quality.
In August 2021, Maricá inaugurated its first Biofactory for the production of bio-inputs (live microorganisms), which have since been used in the restoration of the lagoons. The cityis a pioneer in Brazil in the use of natural alternative sanitation, without the addition of chemical products. The technique was developed based on Japanese know-how and biotechnology research, without any harmful effects on the ecosystem or people. Three months later, in November 2021, the first batches of bio-inputs were released into the canal in the central region of the city, marking the beginning of the water revitalization cycle.
