CFIC® - The Next Generation in Biofilm Technology

The CFIC®, Continous Flow Intermittent Cleaning, is the next generation of biofilm technology. It is developed in Norway, in close cooperation with research institutions.
The CFIC® process is designed to increase treatment capacity while reducing footprint and overall energy costs.


NSO - a company within the Norwegian system for hazardous waste

Norsk Spesialolje AS (Norwegian Special Petroleum) operates in Kambo near Moss, where they run the reception of oily waste. Here they receive about 70% of all collected waste oil in Norway.

Because of the increasing amount of oily waste, the company has invested in a new and modern facility in Bamble Municipality.

Biowater Technology wants to thank NSO for the confidence by choosing our CFIC® technology to clean the wastewater at the new facility!
