Ridge to Reefs - USA
The innovation mimics natural processes of nitrification and denitrification (that occur in nature) using readily available materials, often from materials considered waste, in order to treat wastewater to a very high standard exceeding drinking water standards. The system utilizes aerobic passive treatment via gravity and anaerobic treatment to achieve high-quality effluent and can integrate vegetation to minimize effluent where necessary. The system can be used after a septic system or after primary treatment in centralized wastewater applications and achieves high levels of treatment. According to independent testing with the University of Hawaii, the system achieves 87% removal of Total Nitrogen, 83% removal of total phosphorus and 96% removal of TSS.
