ENVIRONMENT: Panama’s first biofilter installed


Posted 17/05/2019

The first biofilter in Panama installed in the National Transportation Terminal, on Friday, May 17   can purify the air breathed by nearly 2,800 people.

The biofilter is 4 meters high, with 500 liters of licoalga and extracts air from the environment and transforms it into oxygen through photosynthesis.

The equipment works with solar energy and has a capture capacity, equivalent to  368 mature pine trees in a year.

What is sought is the adoption of solutions that do not generate waste, but generate value-added products such as microalgae, which can be used to produce fertilizer or biofuel reports TVN
