Puerto Viejo de Talamanca, Constructed wetland
The company Sat Brilliante S.R.L. delivers and assembles photovoltaic models throughout the world. The company headquarters are in Costa Rica at the heart of the tropical rainforest on the Caribbean coast and near Puerto Viejo.
Because of the topography, the wastewater can flow through the whole wetland in a gradual free flow. Therefore, it does not consume any electricity. That was quite important to the client as they only generate energy with the help of solar panels and did not want to install unnecessary ‘consumers’.
