The Marshalls CPM Biofilter™ is an innovation biofiltration system that harnesses the natural treatment action of vegetation and the filtration power of specially engineered soils.

Above ground the Marshalls CPM Biofilter™ looks like a normal tree box, with a suitable plant or small tree growing through the decorative grating in a precast concrete cover slab at pavement level.  Underneath, the precast concrete chamber contains a layer of enhaunced mulch on top of a unique soil filter medium to deliver high levels of surface water threatment.

Surface water is channelled into the Biofilter™ through a kerbside inlet, through an inlet pipe or directly from the surface and flows through the mulch, plant and soil filter media, providing high-performace, high-flow filtration that targets sediment, hydrocarbons, heavy metals and nutrients.
