Metito to offer Biopipe's biological wastewater treatment pipe to Asia and Africa
Metito and Biopipe Global's subsidiary have unveiled a biological wastewater treatment pipe following announcement of their joint venture and licensing agreement.
Through this exclusive licensing deal, Metito will offer the new system to communities across Asia and Africa.
The system has been patented, and intially treats wastewater inside a pipe. This wastewater then passes through high-quality filtration stage for a complete treatment.
Following this process, the treated water can be used directly for organic farming, irrigation, underground aquifer injection or safe discharge into lakes, rivers or sea.
Biopipe does not produce sludge, odour, sound, and waste unlike several traditional wastewater systems.
Metito said that the Biopipe system brings the advantages of wastewater treatment, recycling and reuse to a wider audience with its ability to treat water from individual houses of two people to entire cities of millions.
Metito managing director Fady Juez said: "The Biopipe wastewater treatment system really is a game-changer. In an era when the world is looking to enhance water security and sustainability, enabling individuals to manage and treat their wastewater at an affordable cost is critical to widening the awareness of looking after our resources.
"Biopipe, is an intelligent wastewater treatment solution that can be easily installed in a house as well as integrated into a plant to service an entire city. This really is revolutionary and I am confident that Metito will help globalise Biopipe. We have the experience, the capabilities and the right network in place to drive this through and to ensure that Biopipe becomes more suitable for a wider range of applications in a variety of emerging markets, both in Asia and Africa."
The system has been invented by Biopipe co-CEO Enes Kutluca after years of research and development.
Biopipe co-CEO Enver Misirli said: "The success of Biopipe has really been down to the vision we had of creating a wastewater treatment system that is inspired by nature and that can have a positive impact on the world.
"Signing this agreement with Metito will help take this vision to new realities as we reach out to more communities, further contributing to sustaining the world's precious water resources. We are very excited and today is just the start."
