Air Purification That Does Not Create Special Waste or Pollutants
GRT DARMA’s biofiltration system, removes foul smelling pollutants from the air in an ecological-friendly way and with reduced waste disposal costs. The Biofilter ensures that the volatile organic compounds in the air are filtered out and then biodegraded (bacterial digestion transforms them into non-harmful substances). According to the Italian-based firm, the biomass filtering media it uses “has a longer lifespan than other materials available today and, when exhausted, has reduced waste disposal costs.”
During the filtration process, the contaminated air is passed through a pre-cleaning scrubber, where jets of water remove particulates, it then passes into an expansion chamber, where it is dispersed across the media support slab. There it comes into contact with the active biofilter and slowly moves through the filter media, which allows the bacteria to go to work breaking down the foul-smelling compounds. The end products of this process are substances such as water and carbon dioxide.
