Water treatment | Microbial decomposition

There are demands for lake and aquaculture farm to purify the water by microbial decomposition

  • Water pollution takes place in lake, reservoir and aquaculture farm by eutrophication
  • Especially for aquaculture, water contamination directly impacts on productivity. Diseases from water contamination can critically damage the business
  • In addition to phosphorus, much organic matter in the water is the cause for eutrophication
  • Porous Alpha with microbe which decomposes organic matter can offer the water quality improvement

Microbe living in water is inhabited in Porous Alpha. They decompose the organic matter when it passes through the interconnected cell

Water containing various kinds of organic matters

A pilot project in Chinese small pond achieved a reduction of COD by 85.4% and BOD by 83.0% in one month

Location: Nanming District, Guizhou, China

Period: Jan 15, 2012  ∼  Feb 15, 2012

The volume of pond water

  • 80 m3 (10m*10m*0.8m)
  • 200 m3 maximum(10m*10m*2m)
  • No inflow, no outflow

Quantity of Porous Alpha: 2.5m3
