Thanks to a further optimized surface structure and a diameter of now 25mm, we have succeeded in increasing the biologically activatable growth area for nitrifying, pollutant-degrading bacteria.
The laboratory for nanostructures at the University of Bielefeld found a protected surface of 4370 m² per cubic meter at the new Eco Pondchip.It is also our goal to achieve the highest possible active bacteria population in the smallest possible space.
As a result, considerably smaller biofilters can be produced and considerably lower costs can be achieved.Only 90 liters of EcoPondchip are capable of biodegrading a daily feed quantity of up to 1 KG.
Why, therefore,Several cubic meters of static biofilters?In addition to a considerably lower cost and effort compared to static biofilters, the moving bed technology guarantees a much better inflow and utilization of the surface compared to static biofilters.An undesirable channel formation, as occurs in many static biofilters over time, is also avoided with the permanently self-cleaning moving bed technology.
14 litres of ECO Pond-Chip media has a surface area of 61m2 - equivalent of 110 litres of K1.
