The PHYTOREM® eco-wastewater treatment plants contribute to the preservation of the environment and biodiversity, not only through their design - natural and producing no discharge – but also through the recovery of biomass resulting from the bamboo cutting.

PHYTOREM® is part of an energy saving approach.

The Bambou-Assainissement® technique is also a very effective carbon sink and heavy metals sequestration system. An eco-wastewater treatment plant working with this technology absorbs between 20 and 100 tons of CO2/year/hectare depending on whether it is located in a temperate or tropical area.

PHYTOREM® is involved in a responsible economy approach thanks to the sustainable and profitable nature of its eco-wastewater treatment plants but also to its integrated approach, its reduced operating costs and the production of by-products that can be recycled.

It encourages short treatment processes (small eco-wastewater treatment plants in urban and peri-urban areas to avoid large collection systems), work with local companies and contributes to create jobs related with the crop of bamboo and the recovery of biomass resulting from the eco-wastewater treatment plants, etc.

PHYTOREM® targets ambitious objectives regarding corporate social responsibility (CSR). It takes into account the social and environmental impact of its activity and combines economic logic with social and eco-responsibility.

In particular, the company choose to entrust some tasks that do not require specific skills.

It also contributes, thanks to its bamboo plantations, to maintain agricultural areas for environmental purposes in the territories.
