Our Research, Development, and Innovation work led to the invention, five years ago, of a flotation system for halophytes that is useful when designing phytopurification plants. Research work and trials have concluded that our phytopurifiers, which work with the Fitofloat system, achieve the same results as a conventional purifier. It is a system that could be applied to small population centres, companies, or homes without access to the sewage network, and one that greatly lowers maintenance costs. Currently, we have a line of business specifically for the treatment of water, since, as well as designing phytopurification plants, we install them, are responsible for their maintenance, and even ‘repair’ phytopurification plants that, because of the system used, do not work correctly.

PHYTOPURIFICATION PROJECTS


We plan bespoke phytopurification projects with the objective of achieving maximum performance for the facilities, always at the lowest possible cost. We work with a multidisciplinary team of engineers who design phytopurification plants.


In order to draw up projects like these, it is necessary to have a thorough understanding of how phytopurification plants work, something that is still not widely known, and how different species of flora and fauna behave.


INSTALLATION OF PHYTOPURIFIERS


We have an installation team that is in charge of carrying out any required preparatory work, making a space suitable, and constructing the basins, as well as installing our Fitofilter system that accelerates the growth of the vegetation and starting it up. Our installation team prepares the phytopurifiers under the supervision of our technicians, who, once the system has been started up, are in charge of monitoring its development until it begins to operate at full capacity at around three months in.


MAINTENANCE OF PHYTOPURIFIERS


One of the main advantages of phytopurification systems is that they need very simple, infrequent maintenance. If the client so wishes, they can count on us to carry out that maintenance, which essentially consists of regularly inspecting the mechanics and maintaining the vegetation (pruning, supervision, treatments, etc.). We currently carry out maintenance for several phytopurification systems. This maintenance is done in two or three visits a year and does not require many staff members or much time.


RECOVERING DEFECTIVE PLANTS


Given that phytopurification is a technique that has only been applied to waste waters relatively recently, there have been installations that did not see good results and companies, communities, public bodies, or individuals who have a phytopurification system that does not function correctly. One of the services that we offer is to carry out a case study and plan and execute a project to start up the phytopurifier without the client having to make any further investment to install another waste water treatment system.
