Winner of the 2018 DirectIndustry i-Novo Eco Award, BioBarrier® Greywater Treatment System treats wastewater from sinks, drains, showers and baths to be reused for non-potable purposes. This means the water from the shower or washing machine can be treated and used for example to water the garden, flush the toilet or clean equipment. With an ever-increasing need for water recycling, the BioBarrier® Greywater Treatment System fills an important niche in the market. In order to treat greywater, the system uses membrane bioreactor technology with flat-sheet membranes that are low-foul and durable. The membranes separate solids from water using micro-sized pores. This immersed membrane technology comes in above or below ground tank options, so it can be adapted to spatial constraints. An active aeration system in the treatment tank means that clogging is avoided while permanent flow and treatment quality are ensured. The system fits into new and existing tank sizes and is shipped installation-ready, making it easy to install and maintain. The BioBarrier® Greywater Treatment System responds to current ecological concerns by helping conserve natural resources, overcome land limitations and protect groundwater. It is an efficient, advanced system offering a superior level of technology for home or commercial use.
