Bob Robori, President and founder of Bio-Microbics has distributors In the East African country of Kenya that install very large systems in one day without a crane. His people pull the system off the truck, slide it into concrete vessels, bolt it together and the next day Kenya has a new 80,000 gallon wastewater treatment plant where there was previously no treatment for wastewater at all.

“It’s not just how well the equipment performs. It has to be easy to install and perform without the need for frequent maintenance. Most of our systems only require inspection once or twice per year by a local service provider,” said Rebori. 

Most of the world is recognizing the need to reuse our limited water supply but a crucial aspect of growing the market is third party certifications for the technology that validate the reliability of its solutions.

Through a worldwide distributor network, Bio-Microbics has been recognized as a leader in exporting its decentralized equipment with a 2012 President's "E" Award and 2016 President's "E Star" Award for Excellence in Exporting.

Bio-Microbics also recently won the "2017 North American Integrated Water Treatment Technology Leadership" award from the Best Practices Team and Frost & Sullivan and received a 2017 Top 10 Green-Building Product Award from BuildingGreen, Inc. for its d-Rain Joint™ Device.

In a world where vital resources are increasingly scarce, nations cannot afford to flush water down the drain. Bio-Microbics, along with subsidaries Scienco/FAST and SeptiTech - water, wastewater, greywater, and stormwater treatment systems provide multiple environmental benefits, including water supply reliability, groundwater recharging and management, water quality improvements, property enhancements and other economic benefits.

“We do some very difficult applications in restaurants, wineries, breweries, office buildings, shopping malls, hospitals, schools and nursing homes and they all have unique challenges to treating wastewater. Throughout the three companies Bio-Microbics has a lot of expertise to advise which approach might be the best for those applications,” he said.
