Breakthrough wastewater purification

Breakthrough wastewater purification

In the heart of the system lays an interconnected and interacting network of bioreactor arrays, where the individual reactor-cells themselves work as high-speed and high-efficiency multi-core bio-processors. The reactor-system is completed with upstream and downstream processing units to make the whole factory suitable to process wastewater and almost any kind of organic waste into products for sale.

I would remind you of a very interesting concept for decentralized wastewater purification. 

The concept was developed in Hungary by the startup Biopolus and embraced by the Dutch Water Board.

Biopolus, deserves more attention because of the multiple value adds and the possibility of integration the technology into an existing neighborhood.

This year, the abbey ‘Lieve Vrouw van Koningshoeven’  will have the first purification refinery system in the Netherlands.


The startup develops and sells efficient, beautiful living factories – BioMakeries – to convert wastewater and almost any kind of organic material into products for sale.

Re-inventing Urban Metabolism

The escalating challenge of the coming decades will be to provide enough food, water, energy and consumable goods. Closing the metabolic loop is a newly emerging urban function which calls for adequate architectural forms and expressions, fusing public spaces with bio-manufacturing and water reuse.

The Biopolus technology solution offers a unique opportunity to integrate biological production, waste and wastewater recycle functions into urban environments.

Wastewater BioMakeries

BioMakeries are based on our unique multicore-multipurpose bio-processors, a technological breakthrough that can make closing the urban metabolic carbon-, water-, food- and energy loops a reality. These processors consist of an array of specialized bioreactors which house a series of engineered ecosystems. The bioreactors provide ideal conditions for adaptive ecologies to develop thereby optimizing their metabolic capabilities. This in turn results in much faster and more efficient biological process than possible in conventional reactors.

The linear “Take – Make – Dispose” lifestyle of our cities increasingly depletes finite reserves while dumping wastes around the cities destroying the environment

BioMakeries are modern buildings with very small physical and psychological footprints but great architectural flexibility. Far from being just another type of factory these are multi-functional buildings containing opportunities for education, recreation, research and even urban farming.

Biopolus invites you to join the Alliance of Creative Ecologists to build a strong, resilient and Evolutionary Business Ecosystem which can be bigger and more influential than the sum of its individual parts.
