Since its establishment in 1990, ECOTEC has been steadfast in its commitment to innovation.
ECOTEC initially specialized in the use of technical plastics designed for complex applications, and in gas treatment systems under demanding conditions (temperature, concentration, etc.).
Later on, with the consolidation of its water treatment division, ECOTEC successfully introduced lamellar settling for diverse waste water processes – an area that was previously unexplored- and started working on: primary clarification, storm tanks, secondary clarification and tertiary treatment, etc.
ECOTEC, has contributed to the design and application of special plastic chain scrapers for rectangular tanks; among these projects is the largest waste water treatment plant in Spain (80 scrapers in double deck settlers) as well as scum removal with the use of special materials for the desalination of sea water.
In the field of odour treatment, and thanks to contributions from biofiltration specialists, in the mid-90s, ECOTEC installed its first biological filters in sewage and municipal solid waste (MSW) treatment plants.
These systems were the first step toward more recent developments in leading biotechnology for gas treatment: dBiox® Biotrickling and dBiox® Bioscrubber, whose main application is the removal of high H2S concentrations. Several references of these units are currently in operation with excellent performance rates.
