Wastewater treatment and resource recovery produces carbon-rich soil amendments and reusable water.
Epic's on-site solids recovery and treatment system diverts wastewater organics from the municipal sewer, easing the load on utilities and saving buildings money. The solution redefines urban wastewater by decentralizing treatment into buildings. This wastewater treatment system collects and processes all of a building's wastewater, recovering the organic solids and converting them into high quality soil amendments that can be used to grow crops, enhance gardens, and beautify green spaces. The separated water, with the solids now removed, can be easily treated and reused onsite for undrinkable applications, including toilet flushing, irrigation, and cooling towers. By diverting wastewater organics from the municipal sewer system and easing the load on utilities, it reduces sewer connection fees and ongoing wastewater rates for building owners and developers. The goal is to keep up with growing cities by (1) decentralizing treatment and (2) turning the “waste” in wastewater into valuable commodities.
- •Helps reduce a building’s water demands by 50-95% and diverts greenhouse gas emitting organics from landfill
- •Reduces a building’s sewer connection fees and ongoing wastewater costs by up to 25%
