Green pipes set for European sewage systems

Huliot, an Israel-based plumbing and drainage firm, is set to supply environmentally friendly sewage and wastewater pipes into Europe.

It claims its acoustic insulated pipe, made from a plastic compound that does not pollute the environment, is a first for the European sewage industry. The pipes also operate at minimum noise level and will replace cracked lead pipes in existence.

Alongside the six contracts to supply countries in Europe, Huliot is also in talks with a number of local construction companies about taking on their product.

‘The reduced amount of noise of downward trickling wastewater associated with the new pipes will be seen as particularly key to building residents,’ Huliot marketing VP Areil Apeloig was quoted as saying.
