Advanced Filtration Dynamic Membrane Technology
Advanced Filtration Dynamic Membrane Technology CORNCOB advanced filtration dynamic membrane technology can convert nearly any wastewater stream into clean reusable water in a small footprint, Decentralized Wastewater Treatment System (DEWATS). Compared to innovative DEWATS biological processes, such as FMBR, CORNCOB is ideally suited for wastewater streams that are less suitable for biological treatment such as landfill leachate.Case Study: CORNCOB Landfill Leachate Solution A medium size...
4 keys to reducing costs and improving results with wastewater lagoons
4 Keys to Reducing Costs and Improving Results with Wastewater Lagoons1. Encourage Naturally Forming Microbes Naturally forming microbes can remove ammonia, facilitate biosolids settling, reduce TSS levels in effluent, consume biosolids, and minimize biosolids buildup in lagoon basins. (See Case Study: Wastewater municipality saves $35 million in capital with a one-step nitrification process).2. Measure the Biological Process Microbe Detectives' DNA analysis services allow you to see, measure,...
DNA-based performance comparison of anaerobic digesters
Performance comparison of anaerobic digesters using next generation DNA sequencing Anaerobic digesters are employed in wastewater, landfill and livestock operations worldwide to create renewable energy. Improving biogas production in a one-million gallon reactor by 5-10% can offset up to $200,000 annually in power costs when used for onsite power (Ling, A. 2020). This study used 60 samples from 21 digesters representing a variety of industries, feedstocks, reactor design, and operational...
WWTP saves $35m with Low DO, 1-step nitrification/de-nitrification
A large wastewater municipality in Texas needed an optimal nutrient removal strategy for a planned significant expansion in capacity. This Case Study provides an overview of how one-step nitrification/denitrification saved $35 million in capital cost avoidance.
Wastewater municipality saves $6m by reducing lagoon biosolids
A California municipal wastewater treatment facility (WWTF) with 4 lagoons primarily processed municipal waste as well as several types of commercial/ industrial waste, including waste from a tomato processing plant and a dairy processing plant, for a total of 2.8 million gallons a day. CASE STUDY Wastewater municipality saves $6 million by reducing lagoon biosolids by 68 million gallons in one yearThe Problem The influent to the wastewater system was primarily municipal, with some commercial...

PFAS contamination. Key things to know.
A new water contamination challenge has made the national stage. PFAS chemicals Per- and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) are a group of man-made chemicals that are very persistent in the environment and can accumulate over time in the human body. Here are key things to know about human health effects, environmental contamination and ideas for your water business.
The Carbon Footprint of Water
The carbon footprint of water is a modern way to talk about reducing water and energy and to create new environmental services. But there are some nuances in how you look at things which are important in making air and water cleaner. There is a major movement sweeping across corporate America, cities and states to de-carbonize. It’s for good reason based on what science is telling us. This is a perfect time to catalyze a new phase of growth for your environmental water business.
The DNA of “Bourbon Gumbo”
For those who missed the opportunity to get a good laugh and learn something about DNA sequencing, this is worth a read, reposted from the originals. Apparently the fella swimming in Bourbon Gumbo did not get the memo.
How DNA tech is used to optimize a Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) process
A brief explanation of how DNA sequencing (or metagenomics) is being used to optimize Biological Nutrient Removal (BNR) processes in wastewater treatment plants. A Case Study is included that saved $360,000 in operating costs.
