Ecodisk™ M: what is it?
Ecodisk™ M is developed by PMT and OTV, another Veolia Water Technologies subsidiary, to offer a more ecological wastewater treatment solution by combining biodiscs with reed beds in the downstream. This combination perfectly matches for remote areas in rural zone, where operation and maintenance should be handled quasi-autonomously.
Ecodisk™ M can also be fully integrated into a wastewater treatment system with a combination of pretreatment. A minimal screening is suggested to keep big particles. Pretreatment can always be enhanced by adding an anoxic chamber or a septic tank.
Ecodisk™ M working principle is quite simple but also efficient. In the downstream of a classical Ecodisk™ system, reed beds are placed to ensure the secondary clarification and sludge storage.
Ecodisk™ M: example installations
Projects based on especially rural areas where the surface area is not a constraint, will be a perfect potential for the application of Ecodisk™ M. Some of the references include :
- Treatment capacity of 4,400 EH and a disk area of 41,300 m², the site of Wissant (Pas-de-Calais) is one of the largest in the region.
- Ecodisk™ M at the Naviti Resort in Fiji Islands, wastewater treatment for 1,200 PE.
- Ecodisk™ M in Rathewalde, Germany, is a renovated facility delivering a capacity of 1,000 PE.
