The BioMicrobics FAST® systems provide significantly improved nitrification/denitrification performance over traditional systems and exceeding typical effluent requirements for wastewater recycling opportunities or reducing the size of the leach field with less aesthetic disturbance of property value or system components. Offering versatility and consistent high performance, the FAST® are also a favorite on marine vessels and offshore platforms of all types to produce high-quality effluent, specifically designed for extreme environments.
Using MicroFAST® Systems solves most onsite wastewater treatment issues. With a small footprint, the MicroFAST system is integrated into a standard septic tank and does not require additional space. Naturally, the MicroFAST® offers higher levels of nitrogen removal (NSF/ANSI 245). With the SFR® feature, intermittent operation of the blower reduces electricity usage up to 45% and can provide improved nitrogen performance (in specific situations).

Environmental Plans (E-Plan) are prepared for facilities to provide full reports for each of the below required plans. An E-Plan can consist of the below primary components:
The E-Plans must be amended whenever there is a change in facility design, construction, operation or maintenance that has a significant effect on the potential for the discharge of pollutants to surface waters. The E-Plan also must also be revised if it proves to be ineffective in eliminating or significantly minimizing pollutants from the sources identified.
