What’s a bio-digester?
A biodigester is a decomposition mechanized sewerage treatment system that decomposes human excretory waste in the digester tank using specific high-graded bacteria further converting it into methane and water, discharged further to the desired surface.
Types of bio-digester septic tanks
- The Standard Bio-digester– This is the smallest size and it can handle between 18-21 people (continuous users). This is the best size for residential properties and small commercial establishments.
- The Jumbo Bio-digester– The jumbo bio-digester can easily handle 100 people (continuous users) and is therefore ideal for mid-size establishments, apartment blocks, hotels, farms, and small gated communities.
- The Jumbo Deluxe Bio-digester– This is the biggest size available and it can handle up to 400 continuous users. This is great for much bigger establishments, estates, shopping malls, hotels, schools, hospitals, and blocks of flats.
Advantages of Bio-digester
- Affordable-Cost of construction of a bio-digester septic tank is cheaper compared to traditional septic tanks. They require less space and no cost of emptying it.
- No Foul Smell
This waste treatment system does not emit any smells.
- Environmentally friendly
Water produced by bio-digesters gets soaked into the ground thus increasing the amount of water underground. Water produced can be used for irrigation. Bio-digesters don’t emit any foul smells into the atmosphere.
- Firm Structure and Design
A bio-digester septic tank is built out of reinforced concrete. This makes it stronger compared to cement, brick, mortar, or plastic materials used in traditional septic tanks. Its cylindrical shape ensures that stress is uniformly distributed making it able to resist pressure from the soil.
- Approved by National Environmental Management Authority (NEMA)
The bio-digester has been fully approved and recommended by NEMA the Ministry of Water and Irrigation.
