The growing problems around the world of massive water consumption and pollution, destruction of aquifers, extensive pavement that prevents recharge- needs a completely new approach to urban and watershed planning. Instead of adopting larger and larger centralized “solutions” with their attendant demands of infrastructure and energy, the NBS™ approach is to break the problem down into onsite, manageable and economic solutions. These onsite solutions are designed as part of the urban green landscape and serve several functions at once: they treat sewage, recharge the aquifer, harvest water, prevent floods, act as green lungs, reduce energy needs for transport of water and eliminate needs for failure-prone piping. This solution is a breakthrough for development in cities, significantly reducing the operating costs and budget associated with both the water and energy sectors. Cities benefiting from this approach are found in France, India, Israel, Mexico and Greece.

The NBS™ is used to holistically purify contaminated water, soil and air, simultaneously. Each system is created of modular treatment compartments sewn into the natural topography to minimize energy requirements. Inside the treatment compartments are a combination of biotic and abiotic components, plants and aggregates selected for their physical and chemical properties and varying internal hydraulic layouts. The NBS™ is tailored for each case and adapted to be effective anywhere in the world. All of the systems are designed to stand well within regulatory demands, and do so at a fraction of the operating costs and maintenance of conventional technologies.

Specialty applications: The NBS™ has been optimized for many waste generating sectors through years of experience and research. Examples include radical –and sustainable- new approaches for treating dairy farm sewage, hydrocarbons, landfill leachate, cosmetics, pharmaceuticals and hormones, aquaculture, RO brines, sewage streams – and more. Each case is backed up with laboratory testing ensuring that local regulations are met and improved on.

Ayala Water & Ecology Ltd, is a company of sustainability experts with 26 years of experience in the field of phytoremediation and operating with a simple goal:

Use natural, energy free, tools to restore balance to the environment.

This goal led to the development of the Natural Biological System™, a sustainable natural technology for treating sewage and waste streams, rehabilitating affected water bodies and rebalancing watersheds.

From headquarters at an organic farm owned by Ayala’s founder and CEO Eli Cohen in Zipori, Israel, and through worldwide partners, Ayala designs and implements NBS™ as a tailored solution that integrates into the social and environmental fabric, providing an economical and aesthetic side of waste treatment that has never been known before.
