BioCoir® Coconut Fiber Biofilter Receives Vermont Approval
Prepared for Release by Anua
BioCoir receives general use approval by the Vermont Drinking Water and Groundwater Protection Division as an Innovative and Alternative Technology.
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 up-cycled 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.
