Unlike synthetic media based systems, the TPS natural media based system requires little or no additional nutrients (N, P, K) micro nutrients (Mn, S, Se), or buffering chemicals which add to the annual operations cost and complexity. Additionally, periodic loss of the emission stream does not result in a significant loss of biomass because of its backup food source supply contained within the media. Once the airstream is reintroduced, provided it is properly humidified, there is little if any additional re-acclimation time required.
Lower operating costs than all competing methods such as chemical scrubbing, activated carbon, thermal oxidation and many other proprietary media systems.
- Low capital costs.
- Truly green process - no harmful chemicals used, low energy requirements and final products are inert.
- Safe and reliable operation.
- Long filter life (from 3 to 8 years).
- Short and simple start-up.
