Targets Heavy Metals
Smart Sponge BC technology uses organic based biochar extruded into an absorptive sponge media.
The technology will bind with nutrients and heavy metals removing up to 98% of selected heavy metals.
Smart Sponge BC technology is also an excellent metals polisher for added insurance to help meet compliance
Capable of removing up to 3 times its own weight in hydrocarbons
Meets or exceeds Stormwater Best Management practices (BMP)
Reduces Cadmium, Copper, Chromium, Lead, Zinc, Iron, Arsenic, Selenium
Removes up to 98% of selected heavy metals
Biochar is created by heating biomass to high temperatures under low oxygen conditions in a process called pyrolysis. Due to its porosity, the Biochar is also a highly absorbent material. Biochar's unique properties allow it to be used to simultaneous goals such as:
1. Production of renewable biomass energy from waste
2. Carbon sequestration
3. Production of environmentally beneficial products
