The bio-filter in agriculture technology that has been tried and tested for many years


The bio filter has been used in agriculture for many years. Due to the constant change in agriculture, there is more and more formation of larger units. Animals in dairy production, fattening pigs, chickens or other livestock are kept in larger and larger units at one location.

However, this leads to significantly increased odor and pollutant emissions at these locations. Local residents and residents in the immediate vicinity feel limited in their personal development opportunities, authorities require coherent concepts for minimizing the emission loads arising from the plants for the approval of such large plants.

The HARTMANN Biofilter is equally suitable for agriculture and industry. Since 1994, biological exhaust air purification has been achieving values ​​that comply with the current EU Air Pollution Control Directive.

The following efficiencies were determined during measurements by the State Environment Agency of the City of Bielefeld in North Rhine-Westphalia:

  • Dust 92,00 %
  • Odor 86,80 %
  • Ammonia 80,30 %
  • Endotoxins 99,85 %
  • Germs / Spores 99,90 %
  • Molds 99,91 %

Installation of filter system in existing projects, new installations and much more

If you are planning to install a filter system in an existing animal house project, want to build a new animal house system or have to reduce your emission values ​​due to official or neighboring community requirements, we will create a viable, practical concept for you.

Taking into account the parameters and premises you specify, we create your concept for submission to the approval authorities and - if necessary - also for positive public relations work.
