Its founder, Dr. Bill Wolverton, is one of the world’s foremost authorities in the use of phytoremediation. Not only is he a world renowned pioneer in this field but has many years of practical application, primarily in wastewater treatment and indoor air pollution abatement.
It is not a matter of simulating nature’s biological processes. But it is our belief that solutions lie within a marriage of natural forces and man's ingenuity. Allow nature to cleanse itself, yet use technological advancements to assist nature in becoming more efficient. WES has developed technologies using natural processes that make use of plants and their root-
The trending buzzword in both architecture and interior design is biophilia. Biophilia is defined as man’s inherent desire to be close to nature. Biophilic design brings natural materials, natural light, vegetation, views of nature, etc. into the indoor environment. Simply put…it’s the basic concept that I envisioned when I began my research career many years ago.

Wolverton Environmental Services (WES) advocates the use of biological systems to treat environmental pollutions. These processes are included in sustainable design. Often this field is referred to as phytoremediation. (Phyto = Greek word for plant and remediation = the process of correcting a problem or to put back in proper condition.)
