Odour-free sewage treatment without residuals

The ECOMAR sewage treatment plant is a physical-chemical system able to treat grey and black water in accordance with the international standards and to render it transparent and odor-free for direct discharge into the sea. No residuals remain on board and consequently the installation of a sludge tank is not required. The treatment is completely automatic, up to two holding tanks can be piloted separately by the PLC control panel.
