The Egyptian Anaerobic Baffled Reactor with Aquaponics/Hydroponics
It is a small-scale locally-produced prefabricated unite for wastewater treatment with resource recovery. The ABR is an improved Septic Tank with a series of baffles under which the wastewater is forced to flow under and over the baffles from the inlet to the outlet. The increased contact time with the active biomass (sludge) results in improved treatment (physical (settling) and biological). The Aquaponics/Hydroponics unite is attached to use the treated effluent for cultivating economical products (e.g. flowers, duckweed …etc) for further water polishing.
The EABRA is motivating rural communities to setup an integrated improved sustainable sanitation system, and generates income for youth in these communities. It is a new adapted model for Community-Led Environmental & Ecological Sustainable Sanitation, which will lead to a significant public health improvement for rural and marginalized communities.
