NOTTINGHAM, England and LENZING, Austria, Jan. 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Bio-Reaction Industries, an innovator in advanced biofilter systems used to treat industrial air pollution emissions from factories, has formed an alliance with Lenzing Technik GmbH (BioReaction's exclusive license partner), and is collaborating with Golder Associates, one of the world's leading ground engineering and environmental services consultancy firms. Working together they will provide customers throughout Europe with a single source for drastically reducing carbon emissions while addressing air pollution issues. Critically, the systems are designed to not only address air quality, but also to save significant energy costs at the same time.

Bio-Reaction's systems are used by a variety of manufacturing industries (e.g. chemicals and pharmaceuticals, paints and coatings, wood panels, food manufacturers and industrial laundries) that produce volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs) and odours. Unlike outdated thermal oxidizing systems that use natural gas fuel to burn away pollutants, Bio-Reaction's patented Bio-AIRSPHERES™ use soil based microbes which digest the chemicals, eliminating the air pollution. As a result, the Bio-Reaction solution costs up to 90 percent less to operate than a thermal oxidizer while producing only small quantities of greenhouse gases.

"The Bio-Reaction system can help our clients in industrial settings control their emissions cost effectively while generating much less CO2," said Samantha Arnold, Senior Atmospheric Scientist at Golder Associates. "This is an exciting new technique being introduced to Europe from North America, helping our clients and the environment."

"We've been working with Bio-Reaction's system for several years because it's the most effective, least-impact solution for helping customers in Europe eliminate harmful pollutants," said Christian Dressler, Product Manager for Environmental Technology at Lenzing Technik. "Because Bio-Reaction's system is designed to leverage existing infrastructure, it is ideal for the European market."
