What is Sorbtive Media?
Sorbtive Media is an oxide-based, high surface area reactive engineered media that absorbs and retains large amounts of dissolved phosphorus. Sorbtive provides between 100 and 1,000 times more pollutant removal capability compared to conventional filtration media, and unlike other media, it does not desorb (leach) pollutants.
Sorbtive can be applied and designed into stormwater quality treatment systems to achieve low Total Phosphorus effluent concentrations (< 0.1 mg/L), providing a cost-effective means to ensure water quality objectives are met within sensitve watersheds.
