Wastewater is collected in tanks, the solid components are separated from the liquid, the solids are collected and, if necessary, sucked out.
finally solved problem
After being biologically cleaned and heated in the bioreactor, the liquid parts are removed during the journey. And that’s where the stink problem lies: The bacteria that clean up the wastewater are currently running across the border. They are currently in need of some support, “because after several months of low occupancy, passenger numbers are on the rise again,” write the SBB at Blick’s request.
