Submerged Aerated Filtration (SAF)
Biological Waste Water Treatment

What is it?

Biological wastewater treatment is a process that uses natural processes to help with the decomposition of organic substances. It relys on bacteria to break down organic wastes using normal cellular processes. Wastewater typically contains a buffet of organic matter, such as garbage, wastes, and partially digested foods. It may also contain pathogenic organisms, heavy metals, and toxins.


Biosfera uses Submerged Aerated Filtration (SAF) technology to achieve a very effective and efficient water treatment system whilst keeping energy and operational costs at a minimum.

Effective, Economical Treatment

Biological treatment is used worldwide because it’s effective and more economical than many mechanical or chemical processes.

Biological wastewater treatment is often a secondary treatment process, used to remove any material remaining after primary treatment. In the primary water treatment process, sediments or substances such as oil are removed from the wastewater.

Treated water may also go through a desinfection process using Ultra-Violet (UV), as well as Ultra-Filtration (UV) in order to achieve very high quality outlet water and comply with the strictest regulations.
