What is Biobox?

Investment in R&D&I

BIOBOX is the result of an intense R&D effort based on the experience and lessons learned by two leading companies in the sector, Ingeobras and Filtralite (Saint-Gobain).

Both companies decided to combine their engineering and research expertise to propose a disruptive approach to the classic containerized solution.

The objective is to create fully automated compact water treatment plants, capable of solving the limitations of traditional solutions; high process costs or rejections of concentrated pollutants that are difficult to manage.

Reduced space requirements




BIOBOX Design Premises

The BIOBOX design is based on technical applicability, cost-effectiveness and plant sustainability as key factors.

The basic premise for the development of each BIOBOX technology is to work with lower operating costs than existing alternatives, also adjusting investment costs as much as possible.

The plants integrate top quality equipment from the best companies in the market. Working with this equipment, designed under very strict quality standards, allows us to guarantee the quality of the operational service. As well as eliminating inefficiencies, optimizing the process and reducing the associated operating costs.

In addition, the filter media used in these plants is based on the excellent properties of Saint Gobain’s Filtralite® filter media portfolio.

Filtralite® filter media allows filtration processes at rates between 30%-100% higher than traditional filter media. It reduces washings by more than 60% and biofiltration processes with ultra-reduced contact times, thanks to its enormous porosity and large specific surface area.

The design objective is to make the plant a completely autonomous system, with self-management and on-line remote control capabilities. Unlike conventional water treatment plants, which are highly dependent on human action, BIOBOX plants are based on sensor technology. They track and record the values of key parameters, allowing their visualization in real time and in history from any device with internet connection.

who are we?

Filtralite® is the registered trademark for all expanded clay products used as filter media manufactured by Saint-Gobain at its Norwegian clay manufacturing plant.

Saint Gobain is a multinational group with more than 350 years of history and an annual turnover of more than 40 billion euros.
The design of BIOBOX processes is based on the outstanding properties of Saint Gobain’s Filtralite® filter media portfolio. Using different types of Filtralite® we combine particulate filtration, biofiltration and adsorption processes to achieve the desired effluent quality.

The company introduced an intensive focus on R&D in 2014, betting on the development of proprietary innovative technologies for the treatment of drinking water and urban and industrial wastewater.

It currently has its own research and development center. There, it studies how to treat each problem from its laboratory-based origin to reach a feasible industrial-scale solution.

All BIOBOX systems are equipped with these innovative advanced technologies of recognized quality and much more efficient, cost-effective and sustainable than current solutions available on the market.
