IBS video: Innovative products revolutionze waste water treatment

Clean water is more in demand than ever, and fortunately there are some easy-to-use technologies that make managing water easier.

As reported in the National Journal, the demand for fresh water in the United States will exceed the supply by 2030, according to a 2012 State Department report. The Environmental Protection Agency already has noted that at least 36 states are faced with local or regional water shortages.

At the 2016 International Builders' Show, Bob Rebori, president of Bio-Microbics, reviewed the continuing challenges for providing clean water, and some of the company's technology for residential and commercial use.

The company's BioBarrier® membrane bioreactor (MBR) incorporates an impenetrable physical barrier for nearly all common pollutants found in wastewater today. The BioBarrier is designed specifically for the unique needs and characteristics of the onsite and decentralized wastewater industry, Rebori said.

The d-Rain Joint™ was developed to satisfy the requirements for a permeable, pervious driveway while addressing LEED and NAHB greenbuilding guidelines. It has a moderate installation cost and a very low life cycle cost compared to other permeable, pervious surface options. Its simple and unique design allows the use of traditional concrete, asphalt, or paver materials to construct a highly performing, permeable, pervious surface system and provide groundwater recharge opportunities.
