Biopipe Global AG
Biopipe is a decentralized wastewater treatment pipe network which 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 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, off-grid areas
Biopipe only uses PVC pipes
Users in Asia and Africa can obtain the Biopipe from the distributor Metito

From the Biopipe brochure:
A sewage tank is used to store inorganic waste and wastewater
When operational level is reached a pump separates organic materials from wastewater
Wastewater is circulated once the Biopipe is full, engaging bacteria on the pipe walls.
Air is passively vacuumed by a pressure differential to facilitate aerobic decomposition. An alternate design allows the air to be provided by an external blower.
Wastewater then passes through a cartridge/mechanical filter and a UV filter
