BASYS and BiofiltAIR Biofilters

How Biofiltration Works

Natural processes and innovative engineering combine seamlessly to create BIOREM’s biofilter solutions. Our systems optimize fixed-film biological reactors to address a wide range of contaminants. Specific microbial colonies are immobilized on the engineered surface of a medium or packing. Odiferous compounds or hazardous air pollutants are transferred into the biofilm where they are used by the microbes as a food source and converted to harmless byproducts such as carbon dioxide and water vapor.

Since all air is not created equal, BIOREM’s design team collaborates closely with every customer to develop the right preconditioning steps that may be required to ensure long term trouble free operation of the biofilter. Whether it is temperature adjustment via heating or cooling, or the removal of particulates and aerosols, our multi-disciplinary team of experts is here

to assist you in selecting the right equipment.
BIOREM’s innovative biofilters have revolutionized how contaminants can be treated. Our engineers and microbiologists have developed biofilters that have a smaller footprint and use significantly less volume of media.

The unique engineered properties of our biofilters means increased reliability while reducing energy consumption. The biofilters resistance to degradation ensures longer lasting life and lower operating costs overall.

The BASYS suite of solutions are biological air systems modularized for small air flows. Systems range from small skid mounted packages for 100 CFM up to a maximum size of 6000 CFM for a single unit. Larger airflows can be accommodated with multiple units operated in parallel or graduating to the BiofiltAIR product line.

Flexibility with Superior Design and Unrivaled Performance

Simple to operate and maintain, BASYS systems are extremely flexible in nature: they can be stacked, roof mounted or installed underground. They can be constructed of high density polyethylene (HDPE), fibre-reinforced plastic (FRP) or stainless steel. They can be designed for forced draft or induced flow (positive or negative pressure), and there are a large number of options that can be selected to handle any application from heating, cooling, insulation, dust and aerosol removal.

BiofiltAIR systems are for large airflows and particularly suited for dense urban environments. They can be integrated into the building envelope, or located underground, above ground or a combination of the two.

These systems can also be designed for forced draft or induced flow (positive or negative pressure) and are available with a wide range of instrumentation and controls.

BiofiltAIR systems are aesthetically pleasing and can be integrated seamlessly with onsite weather stations and continuous performance monitoring.

Custom: Units are built to the specific needs and requirements of each client to ensure guaranteed satisfaction.

Permanent Media(s): Biosorbens® and XLD are engineered, permanent media(s) that will not break down or compact and come with a standard 10-year warranty.
BIOREM is the only reliable solutions provider able to guarantee systems to meet a 1 OU odor requirement and has a proven track record to demonstrate this.
Our engineers have created the largest performance database for odor control and can work with clients to assist on forecasting operating scenarios for greenfield applications.

With a combined industry experience of greater than 400 years, our engineers are able to quickly identify the potential challenges associated with the abatement of odors and hazardous air pollutants. This powerful knowledge base greatly reduces the potential for unforeseen surprises at your facility.

Flexible vessel options: Options on our modular units include 304 or 316 stainless steel, FRP & Rigid Geon® Vinyl, HDPE. Larger field erected units are constructed with reinforced, corrosion resistant ternary-blend concrete which is guaranteed against corrosion for 10 years

Engineered for Sucess

BIOREM offers biological solutions for the removal of odors, H2S, VOCs and HAPs. Our systems treat air flows from as little as 100 cfm to greater than 500,000 cfm. With countless possible sizes, configurations and options available, our experts will help you choose the right system for your needs.
