BioEliminator™: Modular Anaerobic Waste Treatment
The BioEliminator™ Anaerobic Filter is a modular, scalable, and tunable high-rate anaerobic digester.

Configurations and Add-Ons
The BioEliminator™ is available in numerous configurations and sized to fit our clients’ needs depending on the amount of waste to be processed and the effluent water quality desired. Since the waste is more completely consumed by microbes the longer it has to travel through the anaerobic filter, we can size our system to match the effluent water quality our customers demand. We can also tune the process for added flexibility: for example, a farmer could choose cleaner effluent water in one season (e.g., winter) and more nutrient-rich effluent in another season (e.g., spring), when those nutrients could be used as fertilizer in nearby fields.
We also offer additional add-ons for further effluent processing:
- Ammonia scrubber: This system consists of two towers: one removes ammonia-nitrogen from the effluent in the form of ammonia gas, and the second converts the ammonia gas to concentrated liquid ammonium sulfate. This concentrate is a valuable source of nitrogen and sulfur and can be used as a targeted fertilizer. The resulting effluent, which is now lower in nitrogen, can be applied at a higher rate per acre.
- UF/RO Membrane Purification: This add-on purifies the greywater effluent to discharge quality standards. For every 100 gallons of greywater, the system produces 40 gallons of nutrient-rich concentrate and 60 gallons of clean water that can be reused onsite or discharged. We will work with you and local regulators to ensure the proper discharge requirements are being met and the correct permits are obtained.
