As the United Nations say on World Water Day, “water is an essential element to sustainable development”. The theme of this year, “Why Waste Water?” is a pun which combines two indispensable concepts: sewage treatment and the waste that it can suppose. Flovac contributes everyday with the World Water Day topic, as the vacuum sewerage system can be defined as sustainable sewerage.
This year, the United Nation’s concern is pollution produced when sanitation isn’t sustainable. For this reason, UN’s goal is to increase the collection and treatment of wastewater to help protecting the environment and the hydrology resources.
Flovac shares this concern. And this is why we offer a more sustainable and efficient sewerage system to provide sanitation that prevents pollution: the vacuum system.
This system counts with watertight pipes, incapable to produce a leak to the ground, so the environment isn’t polluted and not even a drop of water is waste (which is really useful of you pretend to use after the treating). Furthermore, infiltration is also prevented and costs and energy of depuration decrease. For all these reasons, it is the most suitable system to high water table areas, where is usual to have salty water filtrations in the net.
Furthermore, as water is propelled by vacuum force, the system can be installed in any place, regardless of the difficulties of the terrain (as it does not need deep trenches or a gradient). For this reason, it is a sustainable sewerage that can be installed even in the most remote places (see Flovac’s project in Canouan, the Caribbean) and provide sewage treatment in any location.
