SELECT EcoSBR sewage treatment plants for individual homes and small communities create the perfect environment for natural microbes to breakdown organic matter and pollutants typically found in sewage water. This breakdown of organic matter produces water that is safe for discharge to the environment.

EcoSBR is a wastewater treatment process using activated sludge with aeration and clarification in a single reactor. The process biologically treats the wastewater in batches sequenced through a series of treatment stages.

From households to communities

The EcoSBR process offers a number of advantages:

Maximum purification with minimum footprint

  • High purification rate / treatment capacity
  • Small footprint
  • Low investment and operating costs
  • Compensation of peak loads – Variation in the flowrate has little impact on the process quality as the primary chamber smooths flow variations
  • Fully automatic plant operation
  • Easy to extend if the amount of wastewater increases


1. Charging

The sewage water is fed into the primary treatment chamber where solids are settled out. The primary treatment chamber is sized to accommodate peak flows, thereby allowing even processing in the biological chamber.

2. Aeration

The sewage water, now more commonly referred to as supernatant liquor, is pumped into the biological chamber where it is aerated to promote biological degradation though microorganisms in the water.

3. Settling

The settling phase of the process allows the live sludge to settle on the floor of the biological chamber resulting in a clear water zone which is ready for discharge.

4. Clear water extraction

The cleaned water is discharged from the clear water zone to the environment.

5. Surplus sludge removal

The live sludge that settled on the floor of the biological chamber is pumped back into the primary treatment chamber to be broken down further and in the process, recharging the system with healthy microorganisms.


  • A robust controller extensively used in Germany and other European countries
  • Underload Management
  • The EcoSBR SMART Controller automatically adjusts to low-load conditions

At the heart of our system is the EcoSBR SMART Controller that operates & and monitors the plant.

EcoSBR wastewater treatment plants normally use a control unit and a valve module. These are installed separately and have to be connected using costly cables and connectors, and very time consuming.

The EcoSBR SMART Controller integrates both, the controller and the valves into a single compact and easy to install device that is quick to install.

The EcoSBR SMART Controller has built in pressure sensors that analyse the characteristics of the plant so that it can react to variations in operating loads.

The EcoSBR SMART Controller is fitted with GSM remote monitoring to monitor and send status reports during operation. The EcoSBR SMART Controller has a built-in battery that retains operating information in case of power outages so that the plant starts and stops at the correct cycle.
