Company Snapshot

BioFiltro has harnessed the power of mother nature to create an energy-efficient, chemical-free, low-cost, and odorless wastewater treatment technology. Known as BIDA (BioFiltro Dynamic Aerobic), BioFiltro’s patented bioreactors use earthworms and bacteria to treat industrial wastewater without the use of chemicals and at 80% less energy than conventional systems. BIDA transforms wastewater into clean water for agricultural use in one-eighth the time, 30% the CapEx, and 70% the OpEx of traditional technologies. BioFiltro’s expansion into some of the most regulated markets has impacted the way wastewater is filtered and influenced public perception to thinking of wastewater as a resource.
