Bio-Cord Application and Usage

Bio-Cord Application
Bio-Cord has been recognized as a promising water treatment tool that has attracted the attention of many foreign governments and industries.
It is being used in small and medium sized rivers all over Japan, especially those in central Japan where Fukui (our mother company) is based. In one case, the Bio-Cord system proved able to cleanse a river so well that the BOD (biological oxygen demand) fell approximately 29% from 76 PPM to 54 PPM.
A successful application of Bio-Cord was demonstrated at a sewage treatment plant in Geiselbullach, Germany. The report for this study, in PDF format, can be downloaded here. (The Adobe Acrobat reader, used to view PDF documents, can be downloaded for free.)
Hog-farming is another area where bio-cord is used, reducing phosphorus, nitrogen, and total suspended solids dramatically. It also removes the odours associated with hog-farming.
There are many other areas where this amazing product can be used to clean water. Some of them are listed below, with links to pictures of Bio-Cord installed in various applications.
