What does Tecnium offer in terms of gas treatment technologies?

The pressing need to tackle the escalating issue of air pollution compels industries to seek advanced solutions to manage and diminish their emissions. Below, we delve into the advanced technologies they offer to tackle this global challenge.

Biofiltration: TECNIUM-BIO 

Biofiltration underscores the rise of environmentally responsible technologies. This technique relies on using microorganisms to degrade or transform airborne contaminants. Biofilters, both organic (like compost or bark) and inorganic (such as ceramics or plastics), act as the medium supporting these microorganisms’ growth.

The choice between filter types hinges on the specific contaminant being addressed, but the system’s efficiency concerning energy consumption and emission reduction is undeniable.

Biotrickling: TECNIUM BIO-TR

Biotrickling, while resembling biofiltration, features a crucial distinction: the microorganisms are submerged in a fluid, typically water, which circulates through the filter medium.

This configuration allows for more precise operational conditions control, like pH and nutrient concentration, thus optimizing pollutant elimination. Moreover, substituting traditional chemical processes considerably lessens the environmental footprint, doing away with the need to store and use hazardous chemicals on-site.

Absorption: TECNIUM-CHEM

Absorption, a classic technique, entails dissolving contaminating gases in a liquid. Though seemingly straightforward, the method’s efficiency largely depends on equipment design, like washing towers and venturis.

By selecting the appropriate absorbent, be it water or specific chemical reagents, one can optimize the capture of particular contaminants.

Adsorption High Performance: TECNIUM-K

TECNIUM-K technology marks a cutting-edge stride in the field of adsorption, focusing on exceptionally high-quality filtering mediums. It harnesses impregnated activated aluminas, amplifying contaminant retention capability.

Additionally, it combines various activated carbons, recognized for their extensive compound capture range. Alongside, zeolites – unique crystalline structure aluminosilicate minerals – are integrated, offering unparalleled selectivity in gas purification.

Active Carbon Adsorption: TECNIUM-CARB

The TECNIUM-CARB technology specializes in the adsorption process using porous filtering mediums, essential for effective contaminant capture.

This technology’s essence is in the utilization of activated carbons, available in various forms: impregnated, selectively attracting specific compounds, or non-impregnated, offering a broad adsorption surface area.

Additionally, catalytic variants expedite contaminant capture, and regenerate options enhance sustainability, allowing reuse after a cleaning or reactivation process.


Stripping exploits the solubility variance of a compound across two phases for its separation. In water treatment contexts, it’s particularly handy for expelling dissolved gases.

By bubbling a gas, like air, through water, volatile compounds evaporate, leaving purer water in their wake.

Thermal Oxidation: TECNIUM-RTO

Essentially, thermal oxidation is a controlled incineration where organic pollutants transform into carbon dioxide and water upon exposure to high temperatures. This technique is potent and effective, especially for gas streams with a wide contaminant variety.

Tecnium’s solutions epitomize the best of contemporary environmental engineering. From biological to physical and chemical approaches, these technologies are meticulously engineered to tackle the vast and varied challenges posed by industrial emissions.
