ECOFIXE - A modular biological wastewater treatment solution that gives a second life to existing facilities.

The discharge of untreated or poorly treated wastewater into the environment is a global problem. To solve this issue, the company has developed the ECOFIXE system. A patented modular system that increases the treatment capacity of existing wastewater treatment plants. The ECOFIXE modules can also be used as soon as a new wastewater treatment plant is built to optimize it. The ECOFIXE system is a biological reactor directly submerged in water. Each module is filled with bacteriological support to fix the biomass that grows inside and performs the wastewater treatment. The solution is a high-performance, affordable, energy-efficient system that avoids GHG emissions once in place. It is intended for both municipalities and businesses.

Key features

  • The ECOFIXE system increases the treatment capacity of aerated lagoons from 20 to 40%
  • Each ECOFIXE module can remove 95% of the organic load applied to it
  • Protection of aquatic life achieving an effluent quality of 25 mg/l or less in organic load (BOD5)
  • The ECOFIXE system avoids 80% of the GHG emissions compared to an MBBR installation over its lifetime
  • 20% reduction of energy consumption


  • The ECOFIXE system, is 20% to 40% cheaper than alternative technologies and 60% less expensive in operation and maintenance costs over 5 years compare to conventional solutions
  • At least 50% of the ECOFIXE module is manufactured locally
  • The modularity of the system speeds up the payback of the solution significantly, allowing the user to have a return on investment in 3 to 5 years
