The BioCompact® family of packaged sewage treatment plants includes small and medium-sized wastewater treatment plants ideal for First Nations communities, resorts, camps, hospitals, correctional facilities, and ships.
These systems come from the mid-1960s. It is a development of the German engineering firm located in the small Westphalian town of Salzkotten. The main use of BioCompacts® at the time was as an onboard wastewater treatment system for ships. These systems, initially certified in Germany, were then certified by the International Maritime Organization. The US Coast Guard has recognized the International Maritime Organization's certification.
Over 4,000 BioCompact® sewage treatment plants exist worldwide, mostly as onboard ship treatment systems.
Therefore, in the mid-1970s, BioCompact® STPs modified for use on land received German federal certification. This certification allowed qualified personnel to produce and install BioCompact® STPs without further engineering.
Modern BioCompact® sewage treatment plants from Canada have Intelligent electronic controls, which optimize the activated sludge BNR (biological nutrient removal) process. Firstly, these BioCompact® systems are fully automated with SCADA process visualization. Secondly, they have remote communication and control capabilities through the Internet. A secure VPN connection allows for real-time monitoring and alerts through e-mail and SMS.
