Living Machine® Technology
Living Machine® Technology blends cutting-edge science and engineering with plants and beneficial bacteria to efficiently treat and reuse wastewater, providing lasting water solutions for communities everywhere. Based on the principles of wetland ecology, our patented tidal process cleans water, making the Living Machine® the most energy-efficient system to meet high quality reuse standards.
At a glance, the Living Machine® system incorporates a series of wetland cells, or basins, filled with special gravel that promotes the development of micro-ecosystems. As water moves through the system, the cells are alternately flooded and drained to create multiple tidal cycles each day, much like we find in nature, resulting in high quality reusable water.
