Drinking Water: AVIVE Water

Desperate for a cost-effective and unconventional solution for its drinking water challenges, Sunnyside sought the services of SanEcoTec Ltd. and obtained a hydrogen peroxide plant that utilized the company’s AVIVE [...]

Stormwater: Imbrium Systems’ Stormceptor MAX

When it came time for the aging Autoroute Felix-Leclerc highway to receive much-needed upgrades to its large stormwater drainage network, Imbrium Systems was there to provide a customized solution.

To comply with new Quebec stormwater treatment regulations, the highway needed to treat the heavily polluted water it was discharging back into the adjacent Orme River. But there was [...]

Wastewater: Pearl Nutrient Recovery Process

A shift is happening in the wastewater industry. No longer satisfied with being defined by just their treatment capabilities, wastewater treatment facilities are now dabbling—and succeeding—in recapturing and reusing resources like water, energy, and nutrients. Playing a key role in making this shift a reality is Ostara’s Pearl nutrient recovery process. The innovative closed-loop solution, which was developed at the University of British Columbia, recovers phosphorus and nitrogen at municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants and transforms [...]

Water Resources: AQUARIUS

The AQUARIUS software platform by Aquatic Informatics has positioned itself as the solution to the problem, helping municipalities and agencies make sense of the overwhelming amounts of information, and streamlining the process along the way. “The integrated, transparent, and equitable use of water starts with information,” said Ed Quilty [...]
