Biopipe is the world's first biological wastewater treatment system where the process takes place entirely inside a series of pipes.
Biopipe is protected by patents and proprietary processes. Since its introduction, it has been very well received and widely acknowledged. Years of research and development has produced one of the most sustainable, eco-friendly and cost effective wastewater treatment solutions in the world.
Biopipe can be used in detached houses, commercial and multi-family buildings, hotels, hospitals, industrial complexes, campgrounds and parks.
With its small footprint and scalability, Biopipe can be installed wherever wastewater is generated, regardless of size and capacity.
World's first biological wastewater treatment system
Its the result of years of research that has now developed into one of the most sustainable, eco-friendly and cost effective wastewater treatment solutions in the world.
How it works
Unlike other traditional wastewater systems Biopipe produce NO SLUDGE, NO ODOUR, NO SOUND AND NO WASTE. Biopipe brings energy consumption to a minimum as it can store wastewater in a horizontal position which better distributes water pressure and require less energy as compared to other systems, which can only use vertical pipes.
1) A sewage water tank is used to store the inorganic waste and wastewater (gray and black water).
2) Circulation pump separate the organic materials and to propel water into Biopipe.
3) Biopipe bacteria engages with pollutants and eliminates them from wastewater. Air is automatically vacuumed in by the pressure difference to create ideal ambient condition for rapid growth of bacteria and accelerateaerobic digestion
4) Wastewater then passes through a cartridge filter or equivalent and a UV filter to complete the treatment. The treated water can then be used directly or stored in a clean water tank.
