Nitrate removal for Flue Gas Desulfurization (FGD) Wastewater

Updated: Sep 18, 2019

We just recently completed a pilot evaluation with a major utility customer. We successfully demonstrated that our technology can easily removed nitrate from flue gas desulfurization wastewater. This is a challenging matrix due to the high levels of chloride (> 7,000 mg/L).


We consistently showed nitrate levels in our effluent of less than 5 mg/L. Keep in mind: our system uses no hazardous chemicals, no filters, and no complex chemistry treatments- just our unique bioreactor design and method of operation.


Since this is a new regulatory requirement for coal operators in the US, you might contact us to learn how we can save you time and money in meeting this new regulatory requirement (CFR 40 CFR Part 423.13 g (3)(i)).


The demonstration system sits inside a 30' x 10' containment berm and will process 5 GPM. It requires only

a 125V 30 Amp service to operate. The system uses no hazardous materials or complex and expensive chemicals. Our secret is the biology. We can setup this system at your facility anywhere in the US or Canada. Test it for your self. Contact us to learn more.
