Custom Wastewater Treatment Pilots

A contract pilot system optimizes the new wastewater treatment process

New technologies are solving water problems quickly and more efficiently, reducing the cost for companies. With new technologies, new wastewaters, and new regulations however, the application, the parameters of the treatment method, including best ROI, and the most appropriate equipment for your particular water, is best determined at the lab or pilot scale before a full-scale production system can be designed and built.

The custom research plan is an excellent vehicle to optimize the new treatment method. The contract pilot saves on long term cost and maintenance of the final system and proves it will work over influent variations. Sometimes recycling of resources is possible and found to be cost effective in the pilot.

Our chemists and wastewater engineers are experienced at piloting and determining the most efficient process.

We have conducted contract research on the following technologies:

  • Ultrafiltration/Reverse Osmosis (UF/RO) for the removal of heavy metals from seawaters and contaminants for hazardous wastewater recycling, and from mining wastewaters
  • Physiochemical separation (Precipitation, pH adjustment and/or polymer/flocculant addition for coagulation and settling/filtration of difficult-to-treat wastewaters);
  • Membrane Bioreactor (MBR) remediation of Biological Oxygen Demand (BOD) for dairy farm with biofuel reactor
  • Advanced Oxidation Processes (AOPs) for the elimination of refractory and toxic organic chemicals in landfill leachate and legacy industrial sites

Contact us to conduct a test research project so that your wastewater problem can be resolved with the lowest cost system.
