Why Biofiltration?

There are many available technologies of control, retaining and treating emissions of air hazardous organic pollutants with threaded centrifugal pumps and COV’s, including:

  • absorption of activate carcoal
  • incineration
  • oxidation using UV rays

Although they are cost-effective for the treatment of air streams contaminated with high concentrations of organic pollutants and/or COV (i.e. more than 500 ppm), capital costs and operational information associated with these technologies (including costs for disposal and/or regeneration of solid residues) makes them economically unattractive.

That’s why Biofiltration is preferred over other technologies, as it presents several advantages:



  • has been used for many years in Europe and is considered to be part Of the best available technology (BACT) ) for treating pollution, gaseous streams with toxic organic pollutants threaded centrifugal pumps or VOCS;
  • It is the most adaptable mechanism for reducing odors since it is natural, ecological and convenient in terms of technological developments;
  • achieves a higher efficiency of removal of toxic pollutants emissions threaded centrifugal pumps;
  • reduce operational and capital costs of Biofiltration systems used on a large scale;
  • low power consumption and maintenance;
  • no waste products requiring further treatment or disposal prior;
  • it does not require any source of fuel or combustion.
