All Domestic Wastewater Treatment Systems used in Australia must be fully tested and accredited. The latest AS1546.3:2017 supersedes the outgoing 2008 standard and requires all products used, after December 2020, to hold the latest certification. The BioFicient Series 1 Wastewater Treatment Plant is the first product in the market to receive this certification.
In an accredited, independent testing facility, the BioFicient Series 1 was sampled on a daily and weekly basis for 34 weeks. During this time, the system was subjected to several stress tests to simulate use in an actual residential property. Australia has one of the most stringent process on the Planet to ensure the standard of effluent discharged to the environment is world leading.
Although the industry has 24 months to gain the latest certification, Kingspan believe that the latest technology should be available as soon as possible, hence their decision to invest in their new BioFicient and testing process to achieve the latest standard before any other manufacturer in the industry.
