In the preparation of biofilters with anaerobic bacteria for the purification of faecal waters and waters contaminated with organic matter, the studies have shown that the volcanic tuff from the Strmos deposit has very good characteristics in terms of mechanical purification of the fluid and very good properties for maintaining the anaerobic bacteria for a longer period of time. In the experiments carried out it was shown that the larger granulation is better in mechanical purification, while the smaller granulation is dominant in maintaining a longer life span of anaerobic bacteria. This type of filters have been tested at different temperatures in different parts of the world and have shown good performance in terms of efficiency, and are relatively inexpensive. Our opinion is that these filters should find massive application in small urban settlements, tourist complexes and mountain-rural buildings. It should be noted that the fluid flowing out of the filter is completely clean, with high quality and can be used in agriculture and discharged into water courses without any pollution.
