Ecosim™: what is it?

Ecosim™ is the latest technology developed by Veolia Water Technologies, thanks to the strong alliance between two subsidiaries; Anoxkaldnes and PMT.

Ecosim™design is formed by a patented drum and a volume of mbbr media . Due to its large treatment surface, Ecosim™ is 3x more compact than an equivalent Ecodisk™ solution. This gives Ecosim™ a great advantage on footprint, modularity and transportation aspects. 


Ecosim™ mainly consisted of a rotational drum and MBBR carriers within it. Wastewater transporting organic pollution arrives to main compartment after at least a coarse screening.  With the precalculated retention time, there will be growth of the biofilm on the surface of chips. During the immersion phase, bacteria degrade and consume the organic pollution load. And during emersion phase, bacteria breath and consume oxygen. The drum rotates around the stainless steel shaft with an approved velocity helping biofilm growth until a limit thickness, the excess biofilm will detach automatically by physical forces coming with rotational movement.


Ecosim™ 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.

In operation, the Ecosim™ is silent and odorless.

The core avantages of the technology are :

  • Compact design (3x smaller than a conventional Ecodisk™ solution)
  • Adaptable to seasonal variations
  • Simple operation with effective treatment approach
  • No blower usage => Low electrical consumption => low OPEX
  • Easy maintenance / No necessity of an expert presence on site / Weekly visit
  • No noise / no odor
