Our technology is specially designed for wastewaters with high BOD levels. In cases where other technologies have tried and failed, the Hypertrophic process successfully reduced BOD levels from >30,000mg/l to below surcharge limits. Additionally, our technology can reduce nitrogen and phosphorus concentrations in the same step, helping clients meet stricter nutrient limits and protecting them from rising nutrient surcharges.
Our Customers Include:
Lower Surcharge Fees
Facilities connected to sewer systems generally discharge their wastewater to publicly owned treatment works. These companies pay surcharge fees based on the amount of organic compounds (BOD/COD), suspended solids, nitrogen and phosphorus that they discharge to these treatment plants. These fees can often range from hundreds of thousands to millions of dollars per year. Our technology saves them money while helping them to meet their corporate and social responsibility goals. We can also save them on tipping fees they would normally pay to landfill or otherwise dispose of their waste streams.
Meet Stricter Regulations
Facilities that discharge directly to waterways are responsible for obtaining their own environmental permits and the installation of onsite treatment systems. With stricter limits on nutrient discharge, these customers will need to install new or additional equipment and incur higher operating costs. The Hypertrophic process saves them money with a simpler, more robust, more reliable, and more economical treatment system.
Meet Corporate Sustainability Goals
Our process helps customers meet their corporate environmental goals, including waste reduction, water savings and resource recovery and recycling. The Hypertrophic process may even enable water reuse and the transition to zero-discharge operations for clients on the vanguard of sustainability.
