An environmental choice: macrophyte-based wastewater treatment
For reasons of performance, durability, landscaping and environmental impact, we opted for a wastewater treatment system of filter beds planted with macrophytes.
The installation of these kind of systems is a recent development and appeared in France in the 80s with an upward trend since 1997. A simple and reliable technology.
The filter systems which are planted are so-called "fixed cultures on bacterial support.
The treatment is based on the principle of biological treatment, aerobic and anaerobic, in an environment with variable grain size.
The purified water is collected in a pond (swimming pool water quality) and is re-used by us to spray the flowers and plants on our property.
