Water contaminated with bacteria can cause a variety of unwanted challenges for wildlife and local communities. The consequences of bacteria such as enterococcus, Escherichia coli and fecal coliform can be very harmful. To help prevent and mediate the consequences of bacteria contaminated water, AbTech Industries has created Smart Sponge Plus.


Smart Sponge Plus technology specifically targets bacteria, and is available in Smart Drums™, Vaults, End-of-Pipe, engineered vessels and custom processing units to help meet your water cleanup and treatment needs.

Why Smart Sponge PLUS Technology is Ideal in Bacterial Water Applications



Chemically selective towards hydrocarbons


Will not absorb water

Total Absorption 

Absorbs up to 3 times its weight in hydrocarbons


Organosilane derivative used to reduce coliform bacteria 

High Flow Rate

Able to pass 80 GPM/ft3

High Porosity 

Contaminant molecules diffuse and absorb into the voids until the matrix is saturated

Bacteria Products

AbTech Ultra-Urban® Filter
(Drain Insert and Curb Openings) 

The Ultra-Urban Filter is an innovative low-cost BMP that helps meet NPDES requirements with effective filtration, efficient application, simple installation, and low maintenance.  It is capable of removing hydrocarbons from water, as well as capturing trash, debris, and sediment.

AbTech Smart Pak® Media

The Smart Pak is designed for use in new or existing stormwater vaults that experience hydrocarbon, heavy metal pollution accompanied by sediment, debris, or bacteria.  Smart Paks help meet or exceed stormwater National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) permit requirements with effective filtration, absorption, life expectancy, and maintenance costs.

AbTech Smart Vault™

The Smart Vault is a comprehensive and cost effective solution for treating stormwater runoff. The vault utilizes AbTech's patented Smart Sponge filtration media to remove contaminants and can be retrofitted into existing collection systems included in new construction or redevelopment projects.

AbTech End-of-Pipe

Water Quality Unit

The EOP Water Quality Unit is an inexpesive, durable, and lightweight three section tank that comes in a variety of shapes and sizes, with variations of installed Smart Sponge media that can help to reduce hydrocarbons, heavy metals, and bacteria.
