POROUS SILICA PELLETS FOR WATER BIO-FILTRATION AND HORTICULTURE

Background

   The material has been developed under a waste conversion project since 2003 by Ecocera team of MTEC. Basically, it is used as media in biological water treatment and controlled planting systems. Precursors applicable for the production are silica-based wastes, such as rice husk ash, coal ash and bagasse ash. Its mass production technology together with quality control process have been successfully established.

Core Technologies

  • Mass production method of porous media from rice husk ash, coal ash and bagasse ash
  • On-site testing for production Quality control

Who will benefit from this technology?

  • Waste owners
  • Investors
  • Users

Status

  • Ready for technology transfer. New applications of these porous media are also being investigated.
