Description

The eco machine has been developed by John Todd Ecological Design over 15 years ago, and has been implemented in many different climate zone across the globe. It processes wastewater and sewage with the help of a low maintenance eco system composed of either plants, algae, fish, or other living organisms. It is not only a sustainable way to treat waster water, but it is also an amenity - it is beautiful to look at. The treated wastewater is suitable for reuse either for plant irrigation, or for toilet flushing thus saving thousends of gallons of potable water. Eco machines have been installed to replace traditional wastewater systems in cities (city of Burlington, VT, city of Fuzhou, China), office buildings, schools, resorts, residential buildings. Their impact on traditional architecture and design is tremendous. They are a great example of simple, well thought-out design which develops over time and gives back to people and the built environment.
