Advanced Water / Wastewater / Sanitation Treatment Systems

Internationally recognised for quality products and top-notch field services, SciencoFAST is a manufacturer specialising in marine sewage devices, biological tablets, and other industrial technologies. The origins of SCIENCO® and FAST® can be traced back to the 1940's in St. Louis, MO. The company, which is a division of Bio-Microbics Inc, also provides land-based onsite wastewater treatment devices, and related equipment.

SciencoFAST products have been used everywhere from offshore platforms to floating homes, from survey ships to supply vessels. The company has taken responsibility for providing top quality goods to new markets. It uses tried-and-tested technologies in ways that really make a difference.

FAST stands for fixed activated sludge treatment, a patented process where micro-organisms which usually grow in sewage are fixed to a plane which sewage is passed through. This process produces a clear, odorless waste product. MarineFAST® products take this a step further, by providing a system which can cope with fluctuating requirements.
