BioEcoTech® - A Proven and Reliable Technology

BioEcoTech® is the result of 30 years of research and development led by Mr. Rudolf Martinell and a team of scientists with knowledge from Biogeochemistry in cooperation with KTH Royal Institute of Technology and The Royal Swedish Academy of Science. The first water plant was built in Sweden in 1977 and is still in operation. Subsequently more than 30 water plants have been built, documented and verified in Scandinavia, Switzerland, Slovakia and Austria. The largest installation, in the Slovakian capital Bratislava, distributes clean water to 300,000 people every day. Continuous development and refinement since has enabled the BioEcoTech® to purify all major contaminates in groundwater.

Over the past few years, United Waters International AG has launched the “5th Generation” BioEcoTech®. The 5th Generation is standardized, scalable and operates independent of geological conditions, substantially increasing marketability.

The purification process naturally enhances microbial oxidation underground and is:

  • Environmentally clean (no chemicals, no sludge or other residues, no back-flush water needed).
  • Energy efficient / low operation and maintenance costs.
  • Reliable.
  • Lifespan costs are 5-15 times lower than conventional chemical technologies.

Natural water purification
BioEcoTech® is a natural biological process utilizing semi-aerobic microbes, a natural component of the soil. The only element that is inserted into the system is oxygen (ambient air) - BioEcoTech® does not use any chemicals in its purification process. What takes at least 100 years in nature, BioEcoTech® is able to captivate and accelerate in only a matter of days, thus enabling the purification of all the key contaminates in groundwater such as iron, manganese, nitrate, arsenic and pesticides.
