Two-stages Wastewater Treatment Plant
The ECOROCK-3000 wastewater treatment plant caters for a 1-15 persons domestic application.
The BIOROCK® system functions as a two-stages wastewater treatment plant. The raw sewage first enters a Primary tank to provide pre-separation and initial breakdown of organic solids. The sewage then passes through an effluent filter before discharging into the BIOROCK unit itself which incorporates the aerobic filtration process.
Where required the BIOROCK® can be retrofitted to a traditional septic tank.
(*) Depending on effluent quality requirements it is in some cases possible to cater for more then than the official amount of persons (P.E.) per unit.
This later stage of the process is defined by layers of BIOROCK® media. The BIOROCK media is pretreated with enzymes in order to achieve rapid start up and to stimulate the growth of the correct bacteria type; these bacteria colonize the media in vast numbers and rapidly digest the organic waste. The treatment philosophy has been developed around a combination of aerobic/anoxic biological degradation and filtration. The BIOROCK technology advantage is further characterized by - minimal maintenance requirements & ability to handle intermittent (seasonal) loadings. (E.g. Holiday homes, Safari Lodges, Camping Sites, etc.)
