Profiltitel

AIRBIOTECH, technological support and services to biological Air Pollution treatment

What we offer:
AIRBIOTECH offers products and services specifically dedicated to biological AIR TREATMENT : biofiltration, bioscrubbing and biotrickling.

Our products consist in “tailor-made” microbial inocula (or “cocktails”) for a selective bioaugmentation of industrial equipments at start-up phase or for process optimization purposes. Bioaugmentation refers to supplying biofiltration beds with microbial consortia of selected strains. The biological formulations are adapted to qualitative and quantitative specifications of industrial gaseous effluent.

This selective approach ensures high performance in the degradation of Volatile Organic Compounds, odorous compounds and/or complex VOC mixtures; it allows the size reduction of newly dimensioned equipments. Strain selection is achieved on basis of prior pollution analysis and following in-depth biodegradation pathways analysis in order to ensure complete mineralization of VOC.

In terms of services, AIRBIOTECH offers technical and scientifical support in the maintenance of biological treatment equipments : integrating all process parameters to ensure optimal microbial activity and high degradation performance.

The combination of Airbiotech’s products and services confers high volumic degradation rates (by enhanced cell density), direct start-up and long term stability to air pollution control processes. The spin-off structure of the company ensures high tech and scientifical approach with technical support of R&D teams.


WASTEWATER TREATMENT :
Production of specific microorganisms for environmental technology – Formulations of selected microorganisms – customized microbial formulations

Highly concentrated and stabilized microorganisms (Bacillus spores, Pseudomonas…) formulations for waste water treatment.

Spores of Bacillus have been successfully tested in septic tank treatment, wastewater treatment plants and composting. Technical collaboration is sought with industrial partners dealing with biological products and ideally possessing mixers and packaging units.
The company is proposing three preparations including spores of Bacillus - two solid (powdered or encapsulated) and a liquid one.
The spores concentrations are certified in the formulations as follows:
 For liquid formulation: 2.10 E+10 CFU/ml
 For dry formulation: 1.10 E+11 CFU/g
Innovative aspects:
• These products are very concentrated (up to 1.10 E+11 CFU/g)
• These products contain a mix of different strains presenting a large panel of enzymatic activities
• These products are stable and with extended shelf life (up to 5 years)

Main Advantages:
- Volume reduced for transportation as a result of to the high-concentration biomass of these products.
- High specific bioactivity for organic matters biodegradation as protein, starch, cellulose, lipids… (It accelerates the biodegradation rates up to 20%).
- Standard and customized biological starters.
- Biodegradable, natural, adapted for environmental purposes.

What are we looking for:
AIRBIOTECH & IMBP are looking for new commercial developments; these concern mostly biological water & air treatment technology designers and distributors but also any industrial operator encountering performances loss on biodegradation/biofiltration equipment or looking for a reliable and economical technology for wastewater, VOC or odours control.

Industrial sectors screened : Paint industry, petrol related industries, chemical and pharmaceutical industries, food & feed, waste treatment, polluted soils remediation…

watertreatment : aquaculture, wastewater treatment, septic tanks,...

AIRBIOTECH and IMBP are also looking for technical and scientifical collaborations opportunities in developing new original processes and optimizing existing concepts. Although our company focuses on microbiological aspects (selective bioaugmentation), we are continuously integrating our know-how in global engineered equipments in close collaboration with R&D and engineering teams.
Type of customer : Industrial partner dealing with biological products for environmental technology - developer of formulations for septic tank treatment and wastewater treatment - manager of wastewater treatment plant
