The installation of the BIOROCK wastewater treatment system is part of the rehabilitation project of an old mountain refuge. The shelter has a capacity of approximately 30 people and is located in the Vall d'Aguja, a protected area of Alta Garrotxa (Gerona-Spain).
The management of wastewater generated by the activity in the refuge presented several challenges:
The BIOROCK system was the chosen solution because it offers an effective response to each of these challenges. BIOROCK works WITHOUT electricity, it is resistant to flow fluctuations
and it can withstand periods of inactivity without problems.
The water resulting from purification can be discharged directly into the ground or into a river, without risk to the environment. The quality standards of the treated water obtained with BIOROCK exceed the minimum required by current legislation.
