About Waterloo Biofilter Systems Inc.
Waterloo Biofilter® designs and manufactures on-site wastewater treatment systems ideal for residential, communal and commercial sites. Our decentralized turnkey plants are installed across Canada, the US and Korea, treating wastewater from individual houses, cottages, trailer parks, golf courses, restaurants, subdivisions, remote work camps, resorts and small municipalities with the most passive means available today. High strength wastewaters, seasonal operation and weekend surge flows are easily accommodated by our systems, and the lack of generation of aerobic sludge, small space, and low maintenance and energy requirements are distinct advantages over other aerobic systems. Third-party testing over 14 years has shown consistent removal rates of 90-95% BOD, 90-97% TSS, 99% fecal coliform and up to 60% TN. The treated water is near swimming-water quality so that sub-surface disposal will require an area 5 to 10 times smaller than that of conventional sand or soil beds.
