(FR) MÉTHODE ET APPAREIL ÉLIMINANT LES POLLUANTS D'EAUX USÉES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)The invention relates to a method and apparatus for removing contaminants from waste water for subsequent use on gardens, lawns or for agricultural purposes. Waste water, especially laundry grey water, is contacted with a flocculent prior to use for irrigation. Purified water is safe for use in irrigation and does not adversely affect soil structure. The apparatus of the preferred embodiment is a portable and/or modular system capable of attaching to and receiving waste water directly from the outlet of a clothes washing machine.
(FR)L'invention porte sur une méthode et un appareil éliminant les polluants d'eaux usées pour permettre leur utilisation dans les jardins, les pelouses ou l'agriculture. À cet effet on met les eaux usées, particulièrement les eaux ménagères de blanchisserie avec un floculant avant leur utilisation pour l'irrigation. L'eau ainsi purifiée utilisée pour l'irrigation n'affecte pas la structure du sol. L'appareil de l'invention est un système portable et/ou modulaire se fixant directement à la sortie d'un lave-linge.
