Turning "Waste" Into "Resource"
Turning Wastewater Lagoons Into Water Resource Recovery Facilities
Forms of Water Resource Recovery (WRR) have been used by the large concrete and steel wastewater facilities around the world for a decade, but WaterRR is the first to bring it to the lagoon-based wastewater market.
An important paradigm shift is necessary at multiple levels to advance sustainable sanitation services toward a circular economy in which wastewater is considered a valuable resource rather than a liability. Energy, clean water, fertilizers, and nutrients can be extracted from wastewater—and used to help achieve the Sustainable Development Goals. World Bank - Wastewater? From Waste to Resource Initiative
Without changing the infrastructure, we help small cities improve their wastewater effluent quality and stay in compliance with new, more rigid standards, saving them an expensive upgrade or hefty fines.
Who will benefit most from adding BioHaven Floating Islands?
Forward-looking municipalities with one or more of the following characteristics:
- Difficulty meeting current or future discharge limits.
- A growing population, and thus a desire to optimize existing lagoons and avoid the need for expensive upgrades to a mechanical system.
- A commitment to reducing their GHG emissions, such as a Climate Action Plan.
- Few competing priorities for public infrastructure investment (i.e. other needed upgrades to water or sewer systems).
- The political will to make public investment in green infrastructure.
BioHaven wastewater treatment is customizable to each situation
