FILTREXX ENVIROSOXX FOR POLLUTANT REMOVAL

Filtrexx EnviroSoxx Pollutant Removal Filter

We utilize compost biofilters and natural additives to help remove pollutants from stormwater runoff.

EnviroSoxx® are Compost Filter Soxx™ with one or more natural additives used to remove targeted pollutants from stormwater runoff, particularly in urban watersheds, sensitive receiving waters, and Total Maximum Daily Load - TMDL (§303d) listed water bodies. EnviroSoxx help industrial stormwater permit holders/MS4s comply with their permit by bioremediating hydrocarbons, heavy metals, bacteria, and nutrients.

EnviroSoxx® consist of sediment control devices with one or more natural additives used to remove invisible pollutants. EnviroSoxx can:

  • Remove up to 99% of coliform bacteria
  • Remove up to 73% of heavy metals
  • Remove up to 92% of nutrients
  • Remove up to 99% of hydrocarbons


3-WAY BIOFILTRATION

Biofiltration is a technique to control pollution by using living material to capture and biologically degrade process pollutants. A 3-way biofiltration system would entail the following areas:

  • Physical: it traps sediment in matrix of varying pore spaces and sizes
  • Chemical: it binds and adsorbs pollutants in storm runoff
  • Biological: it degrades various compounds with bacteria and fungi
