ECOTEC has developed biotrickling/bioscrubber technology (DBIOX®) over the last years.
Biotrickling / bioscrubber technology is based on a biological reactor with a scrubber-type washer (vertical configuration) which incorporates a high surface inorganic media where the microorganisms will grow. The metabolic process of these microorganisms will remove the pollutant compounds contained in the gas stream.
Unlike other types of media, the one we install in our biotrickling/bioscrubber equipments can be easily washed and it doesn’t have to be replaced over time.
In comparison, biotrickling/bioscrubber equipments reach higher efficiencies than traditional chemical scrubbers, and they are capable of absorbing a much wider range of pollutants.
Biotrickling/bioscrubber technology does not require the use of chemical reactive (or do require it in very low quantities whenever they are necessary). This fact minimizes running costs and eliminates the generation of toxic effluents that have to be treated.
