BioHaven Floating Island Technology

Coastal Innovation Partnership Program Endorsement Logo

BioHaven® Floating Island Technology helps repair ecosystems by accelerating the natural recovery processes. Through patented technology, Martin Ecosystems manufactures Floating Islands which provide the foundation for improving ecosystems.

Manufactured from Recycled Plastic Bottles

All of Martin Ecosystems’s products are manufactured using a durable non-woven recycled Polyethylene terephthalate (PET) plastic called matrix. The source of the matrix material is recycled plastic drinking bottles.

This environmentally friendly process prevents millions of plastic bottles from entering landfills each year!


The matrix is dense, but porous and contains over 107 ft2 of surface area for good bacteria and plants to grow on.  Plants are grown hydroponically through the matrix while filtering and removing harmful nutrients from the water.
