This plant will serve as a reference site and give impetus to activemarketing in Northern California first before going nationwide.The Biopipe system offers unique opportunities for wineries (640 in California) and food processors to eliminate the use of septic systems and evaporation ponds for high strength nutrient wastewater. The system is cost effective, compact and will allow reuse of agricultural process water, reduce ground water nutrient pollution and air emissions from pond-based systems currently in use. In certain applications it will assist in returning agricultural lands to productive use.”

We are confident that we will meet the strict discharge standards of California Water Boards, the recognized leader in regional water quality control. A successful outcome with one of the strictest water resource control boards in the U.S. will be instrumental as we seek to expand into other States. We have been working remotely with the Hydros team to install and commission the first plant. Biopipe has the potential to disrupt the septic tank market in the U.S. and we are looking forward to working on this and other projects with the Hydros team.”
