Whether you need decentralized wastewater collection, blackwater treatment systems, greywater treatment systems or all of the above, Orenco has your answer.
Since 1981, Orenco Systems, Incorporated, has researched, designed, and manufactured innovative onsite and decentralized wastewater collection and treatment technologies. Our solutions include community collection systems, advanced secondary treatment systems, watertight fiberglass tanks, and in-tank pumping and filtration systems. We also manufacture high-quality standard, custom, and OEM controls, along with state-of-the-art fiberglass buildings, tanks, and enclosures.
Orenco's AdvanTex Treatment Systems were developed for the long-term processing of domestic- and commercial-strength wastewater, as well as greywater to advanced treatment levels using natural processes and at very low energy consumption. The heart of all AdvanTex systems is a multiple-pass, packed-bed, fixed-film media filter that reliably provides high-quality effluent in a wide range of applications. These systems have undergone numerous national and international testing protocols, as well as multiple third-party field verification programs.
