SHAWNEE, KANSAS, July 5, 2013 -- A new acquisition between Bio-Microbics Inc., a global manufacturer of decentralized wastewater, water and stormwater treatment technologies, and SeptiTech, LLC, a subsidiary of Bio-Microbics, will help Bio-Microbics offer more solutions for onsite commerical wastewater and residential septic system applications.
A Maine-based company, SeptiTech, LLC was founded in 1996. The company manufactures a patented, PLC controlled, onsite wastewater treatment system for residential and commercial applications. Designed to fit into locally made tanks (concrete, plastic or fiberglass), the biological trickling filter system has been certified to EPA's ETV (Environmental Technology Verification), NSF/ANSI Standard 40, class 1 and NSF/ANSI Standard 245 for Nitrogen Reduction. Standard treatment achieves 98% BODS and TSS removal and for nitrogen reduction systems, SeptiTech typically treats domestic wastewater to levels of Total Nitrogen to 19 mg/l or below.
SeptiTech operates in about 20 states and currently has over 1,600 systems in operation including approximately 300 commercial systems treating flows of over 1,000-gallons per day. Commercial systems are routinely specified for schools, housing developments, shopping centers, restaurants and nursing homes. The smart technology is known in the industry for its design versatility and ability to accommodate non-standard applications such as high strength waste, strict effluent requirements.
