LIVING BIOLOGICAL SEWAGE SYSTEM
GREEN ANCHOR BUSINESS
14. Living Biological Sewage System
The RREVDR Biological Sewage System is a sophisticated, state-of-the- art, on-site living biological sewage system providing green sewage treatment using no chemicals. It is designed to exploit natural biolog- ical processes in a confined space via natural organisms to do the work of breaking down the sewage into water and solids.
Sewage arrives in a green-house containing a series of tanks and filter subsystems that are diverse communities of bacteria and algae, micro- organisms and many species of plants, trees, snails, fish that interact as whole ecologies in these tanks and bio-filters. The resulting waste water then goes through series of constructed wetlands with the flow taking place between the roots of plants.
The constructed wetlands emulates the features of RRERDR's natural wetlands that acts as a biofilter removing sediments and pollutants. The design consist of different shallow depressions or cells built into the ground with level bottoms so that the flow of water can be controlled within the cells and from cell to cell. Roots and stems of the wetland plants form a dense mat where biological and physical processes occur to treat waste water.
The planted vegetation plays a major role in contaminant removal as the filter bed consists of a combination of sand and gravel. The vege- tation in the wetland provides a substrate consisting of roots, stems and leaves in which microorganisms can grow as they break down organic materials. The wastewater passes through a sand medium on which plants are rooted. A gravel medium of sand, limestone and volcanic rock (lavastone) is used in the subsurface horizontal flow system.
A constructed subsurface flow wetland is engineered to treat both black- water and greywater. The effluent first passes a primary treatment which effectively removes solids. There are different biological and physical processes involving biological filtration, adsorption and nitrification. Coarse sand in the filter bed provides a surfaces for microbial growth and supports the adsorption and filtration processes.
Vegetation in a wetland provides roots, stems, leaves upon which micro-organisms can grow as they break down organic materials. The colonies of microorganisms together remove 90% of pollutants and waste break- down as the plants remove about 7-10% of pollutants and act as a carbon source for the microbes when they decay. Treatment wetlands promote water reuse, wildlife habitat and create recreational green zones for surrounding communities contributing substantially to the quality of life of an area.
There are also treatment ponds and stabilization ponds engineered and integrated into the treatment system. A series of ponds prevents mixing of untreated waste with treated wastewater and allows better control of waste residence time for uniform treatment efficiency. Treatment ponds are constructed to treat lightly polluted water or wastewater. They are also used in combination with the rainwater reservoir to form an ecological, self-purifying irrigation reservoir.
There is green, red and brown alga grown in the treatment ponds. Both bacteria and algae are needed in order to maximize the decomposition of chemicals. Bacteria and algae work in tandem with bacteria breaking down the complex compounds and chemicals. Then the algae decompose the newly formed compounds and are able to produce oxygen for the bacteria that need it. Several types of invertebrates are present in the ponds to maintain algae levels and help allow the sediment to settle on the bottom. Fish are added to the ponds so bug issues are controlled in a natural and environmentally friendly way without having to use harmful chemicals.
Stabilization ponds are called lagoons or waste stabilization ponds) use a natural process for wastewater treatment that employs a com- bination of macrophytic plants, substrates and microorganisms in a more or less artificial pond to treat wastewater. The technique is fre- quently used to treat municipal wastewater, industrial effluent, muni- cipal run-off or stormwater. After treatment, the effluent may be re- turned to surface water or reused as irrigation water (or reclaimed water) if the effluent quality is high enough. Stabilization ponds are also used in the biological wastewater treatment system. Types of stabilization ponds include settling basins, anaerobic lagoons, facultative pond and aerated lagoons.The RREVDR Biological Sewage Green Anchor Business operates site tours for public & schools and provides joint research and internship programs with RREVDR agribusiness strategic partners. Options are available for this anchor business to expand services to provide waste management, trash removal and recycled materials services.

Coalition of 23 Green Anchor Businesses Summary
The Coalition of 23 Green Anchor Businesses is formed as an integral part of the RREVDR business plan and eco-village destination resort management services. Their expertise, dedication, experience, resources and management in their respective eco-resort green business service adds value to the RREVDR intellectual property and greatly expands RREVDR branding in ecotourism and geotourism internationally.
The Coalition of 23 Green Anchor Businesses is a major part of the RREVDR marketing campaigns where ecotourism agencies worldwide will book various types of RREVDR destination retreat packages. Each of the 23 Green Businesses are networked into ecological, social and economic sustainability while working together in marketing and cross-promotions campaigns interna-tionally. All 23 Green Anchor Business are integrated into equity partnerships with exclusive international RREVDR branding rights tied to proprietary services and products, intellectual property, options for participating in research and develop-ment contracts, sales and licensing agreements, merchandising and revenue sharing that includes destination resort tours, entrance fees, various eco-resort and green recreational ecotourism programs and packages.
Each Green Business will purchase land parcels for their anchor business and will fund and build their own separate business infrastructure developments, construction, employee base and have their own separate business identity and proprietary equip-ment. They will be able to use the applicable RREVDR green electricity, water, sewage, waste management and all the destination resort services listed in the RREVDR Green Anchor Business Agreement.
Each of the 23 Green Businesses listed below will be part of the RREVDR international brand messaging, cross-promotions, brand packaging and will share in the resort revenue profits. All 23 Green Businesses will participate and make available their respective business service in RREVDR green eco-resort tours for public, schools, strategic partners, tour groups, media, celebrities and research programs worldwide.
The RVEVDR development has outlined a charter to operate as a quasi-municipality corporate entity and HOA integrating 450 green homes with 23 Green Anchor Businesses. Please contact us regarding your green business interest, expertise and participation capabilities. We're looking for like-minded visionaries and green businesses to join our RREVDR elite green design team.
