Biopipe Global AG
Biopipe is a wastewater treatment system that recycles water for irrigation and secondary applications.
Biopipe is a decentralized wastewater treatment pipe network that treats domestic wastewater for reuse in irrigation and secondary use applications. The system is comprised of a tank, pipe modules, circulation and water pumps, and a UV filter. Microbiological pathogens are removed by bacteria that lines the inside of the pipe. Biopipe can also be scaled up to accommodate the treatment demands of large cities.

Goal 6: Clean water and sanitation
Users seeking wastewater treatment where centralized treatment facilities do not exist, users seeking decentralized wastewater treatment in rural, and off-grid areas.
Biopipe uses PVC pipes, tanks, and pumps to allow for a flexible and modular design to fit specific needs.
Users can obtain the product by contacting the manufacturer directly, or through their local distributing office.
As of 2020, approximately 40 units have been implemented.

In a Biopipe system, a sewage tank is used to store inorganic waste and wastewater. When an operational level is reached, a pump separates organic materials from wastewater, and wastewater is circulated. Once the Biopipe is full, bacteria are engaged on the pipe walls. Air is passively vacuumed by a pressure differential to facilitate aerobic decomposition. The wastewater then passes through a cartridge/mechanical filter and a UV filter. Biopipe can treat the wastewater generated by small buildings to cities of millions; Biopipe brings energy consumption to a minimum as it can store wastewater in a horizontal position which better distributes water pressure and requires less energy. Biopipe’s water treatment always for recycling of water for secondary purposes like irrigation or toilet water.
