NewGen Wastewater Treatment Technology in a Very Small Footprint

Feeding, protecting, and sheltering microbes is the approach of EKO GEA, a Slovenian bio-tech company with a breakthrough technology for its low-cost, fast wastewater treatment plant which also produces biogas. The various microbes that perform effective anaerobic digestion of waste are compacted into unique biomedia which shelter these microbes and fed oligosaccharides in EKO GEA's proprietary marine algae additive. Alginates act to protect microbes from toxins present in waste and the additive provides ion exchange capacity to reduce harmful compounds like H2S, ammonia, and heavy metals. The result is a revolutionary approach to wastewater treatment, biogas production and bio-filtration.
