WASTE WATER TREATMENT IN RAIL CARS

PURIFYING OF SANITARY WASTE WATER ALREADY IN MOVING TRAIN
WITH THE BIOREACTOR OF PROTEC


The (bio)logical answer to conventional collection tank systems. Less efforts, lower operational costs - and higher availability of the rail cars. The mobile small waste water treatment plant impresses through higher economic efficiency in rail traffic.

 

Protec Rail has developed the »Bioreactor« - an unprecedented biological toilet system. The Bioreactor has significantly lower operational costs compared to closed collection tank systems. Mainly, because of the appreciable increase in disposal intervals. Using our Bioreactor you also take advantage of our many years know-how in the field of waste water treatment - in a system that was specifically designed for the railway sector.

 

FACTS ABOUT THE BIOREACTOR

The Bioreactor - the »High Performance Small Waste Water Treatment Plant« for the installation in rail cars

  • the system treats the waste water of the train toilet in the travelling train
  • the purified water can be discharged on the railroad tracks
  • the system increases the time between disposal intervals and reduces the service requirements
  • significant savings in infrastructure costs
  • required installation space comparable to conventional collection tank systems
  • easy and environmentally friendly operation without using chemical or auxiliary agents

ADVANTAGES

  • long disposal intervals
    (between 2 and 6 months)
  • high availability of the rail car
  • economic benefits with respect to the LCC values
  • low requirements on the disposal infrastructure, fewer service stations
  • no „external" waste disposal costs for example for the international traffic
  • environment-friendly
  • no addition of chemicals or additives
  • no emergence of explosive or combustible gases

 

 

OPERATING EFFICIENCY


Depending on the situation the higher acquisition costs of the biological system are amortized after just a few years because of the favorable operating costs and the small expenses for the waste management infrastructure.
