New partnership promotes algae-based technology for wastewater purification

Aquanos’ technology captures the symbiotic relationship between bacteria and algae. Bacteria supplies carbon dioxide to the algae, algae provides oxygen to the bacteria, and both remove impurities from wastewater. This natural process reduces a wastewater treatment system’s operational costs by 40-60 percent and significantly reduces capital expenditures.World Water Works adds that it can further enhance and optimise the Aquanos process using its AHTO™ (Algae Harvesting Technology – Optimized) expertise along with Moving Bed Biofilm Reactors (MBBRs). World Water Works says its goal is to deliver lower cost wastewater treatment while producing high grade sellable products from this process.
