The Algal Scientific Hypertrophic™ Water Treatment Process uses a single-step to remove soluble organics (BOD/COD), nitrogen, and phosphorus from medium to high strength wastewaters. Our process relies on the unique biology of microalgae to simultaneously remove all three water contaminants.
Simply put, rather than allowing an algal bloom to occur in nature, where it causes significant environmental and economic damage, we create a controlled algal bloom in compact growth troughs. We then separate the algae from the water, producing clean water to meet the regulatory requirements of our customers or reduce the surcharges they pay, and create a biomass resource we will process and market reducing costs to our customers. This process is distinct from traditional systems which rely mainly on bacteria to remove BOD, and then chemical treatments with additives to aid in the physical removal of other nutrients. In short, we use the same proven wastewater treatment processes and equipment with a more advanced micro-organism. Our patent pending technology includes the specific types of algae we use and the processes for growing and harvesting it.
Features & Benefits
For the agricultural, commercial, industrial or municipal customer, compared to the traditional multi-step process, we have the technology to deliver better performance, at lower cost, with an easier to implement and operate solution.
