Microplastics, the tiny but pervasive pollutants infiltrating our waterways, are a growing threat to ecosystems and human health. To combat this environmental crisis, Fabco Industries has developed new technology in the fight against microplastics, utilizing innovative stormwater filter cartridges to safeguard water quality.

Microplastics, Major Problem

Microplastics, particles smaller than 5 millimeters, originate from various sources, posing a significant risk to local water bodies and aquatic life. Stormwater runoff, often overlooked in traditional water management, acts as a primary conduit for these tiny pollutants to enter our rivers and oceans.

Fabco’s Solution: Stormwater Filter Cartridges

Recognizing the urgency in treating microplastics in stormwater, Fabco Industries has developed a powerful new filter cartridge to be used in StormBasin Catch Basin Inserts and StormSafe Vault units, designed to capture and treat microplastics effectively, preventing their entry into water bodies and mitigating the potential harm they cause.

Our Fabco Filter Cartridges employ a multi-stage filtration process that targets various pollutants, including microplastics. The  design ensures that even the tiniest plastic particles are trapped, allowing only clean water to pass through. The heavily tested design ensures clean water flow, protecting precious ecosystems and human health.

What sets Fabco Industries apart is not only the effectiveness of our stormwater filter cartridges but also our commitment to sustainability. Our stormwater filter cartridges are designed for durability, reducing the need for frequent replacements and minimizing environmental impact.
