Zero energy, low maintenance residential wastewater treatment system provides big savings for homeowners while helping the environment

Bord na Móna Environmental Products (USA) is now demonstrating the low power, low maintenance, and environmental benefits of its Puraflo® Peat Fiber Biofilter wastewater treatment solution at the company’s new Greensboro Innovation Center. The Puraflo system is certified by NSF to NSF/ANSI Standard 40.

“The Puraflo Peat Biofilter treatment system is a zero energy natural wastewater treatment solution for on-site wastewater treatment requirements,” asserted Shane Keaney, President of Bord na Móna Environmental Products U.S. Inc.
“Utilizing a unique, natural biofibrous peat filter media, the Puraflo treatment system is, in our opinion, the highest performing, most reliable natural treatment system available today.”
 Delivered in a pre-assembled modular unit that reduces installation costs, the Puraflo solution is compatible with pad dispersal systems, making it an ideal treatment solution in difficult soil, shallow water table, and lot size restrictive applications. It is a single pass system that does not require blowers, complex control panels or recirculation pumps. As a result, this zero energy, or low power time-dosed solution, provides savings for homeowners while meeting LEED and other green building standards. 
“The key to our system is that it utilizes a natural peat fiber which is a by-product of the energy production industry,” emphasized Keaney. “It protects the public’s health by removing greater than 99% of harmful bacteria through a natural treatment process without the need for chlorination or Uv. It protects the environment by consistently producing odor free and guaranteed treatment results to a much higher standard than many of the other treatment systems on the market today including natural nitrification of the wastewater reducing the ammonia levels to less than 5mg/l. ”
