And the BIDA® System will remove up to 99% of water contaminants in a chemical and sludge free process while using up to 95% less energy than traditional systems. Make cents out of sustainability.
See Who We Help
Applications Worldwide
With plants operating in Patagonian national parks, on the frozen tundra of Antarctica, and in Atacama Desert, the driest desert in the world, BioFiltro has experience engineering, building, and maintaining facilities in even the most extreme and remote places of the world. Our modular technology has processed billions of gallons of liquid waste for clients ranging in size from 100 GPD to 2MGD.
Catalyze Natural Processes
After conducting extensive research, Charles Darwin noted the incredible digestive power of the earthworm, and stated that they enhance microbial activity while promoting healthy soil formation and humus generation. "Without the work of this humble creature," Darwin stated, "agriculture, as we know it, would be very difficult, if not wholly impossible." The BIDA® System capitalizes upon the symbiotic harmony of earthworms and bacteria to deliver a biofiltration system that incorporates physical and biological filtration, aerobic medias, and nitrification and denitrification processes.

Our Removal Efficiencies

For over a quarter of a century, our standard BIDA® System design has averaged the following removal efficiencies:

  • ≥ 90% Biological Oxygen Demand
  • ≥ 90% Total Suspended Solids
  • ≥ 90% Total Nitrogen
  • ≥ 90% Ammonia 
  • ≥ 90% Oil & Grease
  • ≥ 30% Phosphorus

Nature Needs Room

To provide prospect clients with a customized system quotation and footprint estimate, BioFiltro needs to understand:

  • Influent Water Quality Parameters: BOD, TSS, pH, and, if relevant, Total Nitrogen, Oil & Grease, Phosphorus, and Ammonia. 
  • Daily Flow: Seasonal or variable clients are asked to provide peak average GPD and annual average GPD. 
  • Target Effluent Water Quality Parameters:  Standard systems remove > 90% of BOD & TSS but please indicate specific discharge limits if applicable.
  • Pre-Existing Infrastructure: As BioFiltro custom designs and builds, our engineers can build off pre-existing wastewater infrastructure to reduce installation costs. 

For clients who need to achieve stringent discharge limits, BioFiltro can complement our systems with tertiary disinfection. 

Wastewater As a Service

BioFiltro is proud to offer a turnkey “Wastewater as a Service” (WAS) solution in which we partner with our clients to not only build and commission a customized BIDA® System onsite, but also maintain and monitor the system to ensure compliance with discharge regulations. Clients, meanwhile, make 100% tax-deductible monthly payments which are based on a per gallon fee that is fixed for the life of the contract.  

Without the need to provide the upfront capital for the project, clients are free to invest in growth of their core business while having the peace of mind that BioFiltro is focusing on ours 24/7/365 days a year.


  • Complete Turnkey – Design, engineering, permitting, construction, start-up, and equipment and system maintenance managed by BioFiltro for the length of the contract.
  •  No upfront cost so you can invest capital into production and growth instead of operations.
  • Fixed per gallon fee so you can predict your wastewater costs every month for the length of the contract.
  • Deduct 100% of payments on taxes to reduce your annual tax burden.
  • Option to buy out at any time during contract term 
  • Monthly performance guarantee built-in
