Naturally occurring bacteria; known as biomass is used to treat the raw sewage for dispersal or reuse. BioMicrobics has perfected a process consisting of a blower, which provides air to the system and creates an air lift. This lift mixes oxygen and waste throughout the media, where bacteria is actively growing and digests the waste. Finally, any harmless vapors are expelled through the vent pipe, solid waste will collect in the tank for periodic removal, and treated water will be dispersed via the drain-field. The FAST technology delivers an enhanced level of treatment, and is available in multiple systems to accommodate the demands of consumers.
