BioFill® is a high efficiency plastic media used for bacteria beds for attached growth and combined biological treatment processes (trickling filter, submerged attached growth processes). BioFill® is produced from polymers with high mechanical features and high resistance to chemical, physical and biological agents with which it could be in contact. BioFill® is available in 7 different forms and sizes. Each size has its own specific application purpose but for all versions the life expectancy can be as high as 20 years, which is much longer than softer media available on the market which suffer more from mechanical wear and UV radiation.
