The Dutch company WiseUse International BV has proposed using a so-called bio stimulator “PoCo” (Pollution Control) in ecological restoration of Lake Ypacarai (Paraguay). In this study results of laboratory assays are reported testing the performance of PoCo regarding the alleged enhanced mineralization of organic matter in the water phase and sediment, the inhibition of cyanobacterial growth (as a clear measure counter acting the symptoms of eutrophication) and effects on survival of the waterflea Daphnia.
