BioCoir Coconut Fiber Biofilter Receives Texas Approval

Prepared for Release by Anua

BioCoir has been approved for use in Texas by The Texas Commission on Environmental Quality (TCEQ). This approval is based on:

  • The NSF Standard 40 certifications and scaling certifications of the products,

  • TCEQ approval of the training, operation, maintenance, and installation documents for the products.

BioCoir utilizes coconut fiber (coir) media housed in an engineered pod. Coir are the fibers that constitute the thick mesocarp, or husk, of the coconut fruit. The coconut fiber is a low-cost and a renewable upcycled media that is sustainably and ethically harvested.


The high lignin content of these fibers results in a durable material for balancing air and water exchange. Pretreated effluent is sprayed over the media using specially designed helical spray nozzles that provide uniform distribution over the entire pod surface area. Effluent is recirculated through the media multiple times, which optimizes treatment.


Why Choose BioCoir?

  • NSF/ANSI Standard 40 and nitrogen reduction

  • Upcycled and sustainable natural media

  • Simple operation with low energy use

  • Prepackaged, lightweight pod for easy installation

  • 80%/20% split pods simplify treatment process
