Standards Australia, in collaboration with the South Australian Environment Protection Authority (SA EPA), has published a new Australian Standard providing the minimum requirements for greywater treatment systems installed on vessels operated on inland waters.
H20 Industries’ High Turbidity GreyWater Treatment System has been able to successfully treat greywater collected from commercial laundries, residential and office buildings to class A+ quality.
A new protocol for testing greywater treatment technologies in Australia could boost efforts to conserve the nation’s water resources.
A wastewater idea that employs 'designer' bacteria to 'digest' poisons in industrial fluids has been developed by the Microbial Solutions company.
The ecoCare Grey Water Diverter System is a compact automatic system that works by collecting and harvesting water from a household's shower, bath or washing machine. When the wastewater is diverted into the system, the pump is activated, pumping the greywater to the garden.
The Oasis Domestic Greywater Treatment System (GT600) is capable of generating a saving of almost 400 L of drinking water a day for the average four-person household. It takes the greywater generated by baths, showers, laundry and hand basins and treats it to a high quality suitable for garden irrigation, toilet flushing, clothes washing and car washing.
Aerocycle-Aquatherm is a water disinfection system that uses heat to remove all bacteria and pathogens from greywater and untreated effluent. The system is economical as it uses heat exchangers to recycle the energy used to initially heat the effluent. No chemicals are used in the process; however, a later addition of chlorine at 0.01 ppm for disinfection may be added.
