Sustainability and the Environment
Orenco has been designing and manufacturing sustainable wastewater solutions for homes, businesses, and communities since 1981, long before the concept of sustainability was popularized. By using natural processes that mimic soil dynamics, Orenco has optimized packed-bed filters for advanced secondary treatment and re-use of blackwater and greywater. It was Orenco’s extensive experience with sand filters that led to the development of its AdvanTex® System, which provides simple, reliable treatment at any scale with minimal operation/maintenance, low power requirements, and without chemicals or additives. The company’s wastewater collection and treatment technologies have been installed in environmentally-sensitive areas all over the world.
