Porous Alpha is a foamed glass with numerous pores, produced by burning pulverized glass mixed with a foaming agent such as shell powder or calcium carbonate (CaCO3).
Porous Alpha can be used for various agricultural practices. It can be used for water-saving, medium for plant growth, better aeration in the soil, etc. As a media for biofiltration, the microbes supported inside Porous Alpha decomposes the source of the odor and hence can be a fit for the poultry and chicken abattoir facilities. It can also be used for water treatment via adsorption and desorption of fluorine and phosphorous ions.
