The EcoProtector is a hydrodynamic, full capture, high-capacity trash and debris removal GPT (Gross Pollutant Trap) with superior litter and organic debris capture. The EcoProtector has been designed to remove particles greater than 5mm using physical processes to trap solid waste such as litter and coarse sediment under low velocity conditions. EcoProtectors are commonly used as the primary treatment for the removal of large, non-biodegradable pollutants in areas with a high fraction of impervious surfaces such as residential subdivisions, roads, car parks, industrial applications and any area that may require Stormwater treatment. Primary treatments include physical screening, rapid sedimentation and separation processes. The typical retained contaminants include gross pollutants and coarse sediments. Gross pollutant traps are most often used as part of a treatment process with other Stormwater treatment measures as they are not entirely effective in removing nutrient.
