Our Process

Assured product quality - with no compromise.
With the patented ThermAer™ Process, you can achieve the results you want without compromising
your quality or cost objectives. The system delivers superior volatile solids and pathogen reduction
combined with extremely low odor in any reactor configuration - with assured EPA Class A and/or
exceptional quality certification.

Your system will be custom-engineered to fit your requirements exactly, whether you would like
to retrofit your existing basins - or integrate ThermAer into your new system. In typical
installations you will have the flexibility to batch or continuously feed the process daily, after thickening the feed material.

High temperature and intense mixing ruptures the cell walls of incoming waste stream
Foam production, an indication of degradation of proteins, controlled by hydraulic foam control cones Very low yield, an indication of high volatile solids reduction.


Greatly reduces the overall dewatering costs
Mesophilic conditioning and optimum pH provide suitable conditions for nitrification and denitrification. No external alkalinity required. Conditioning in SNDR™ decreases ammonia and, soluble COD while reducing overall chemical and polymer consumption.

Clean Water Act

E P A  Easing Permitting Process

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Andrew Wheeler today signed new rules that will streamline the permitting process for pipelines and other infrastructure projects under the Clean Water Act. The rules follow an August proposal to limit the reasons for rejecting permits and give states a one-year maximum to decide on permit applications.

Beneficial Use of

Biosolids Award

The installation of the ATAD system has mitigated several key risk factors associated with traditional composting and/or landfilling activities including vector attraction, contaminated runoff, and unwanted odor. The end product is essentially neutralized of pathogenic and odorous organic content, reducing the likelihood of vector attraction. 

One benefit of the ATAD process is that it provides more complete digestion of the incoming sludges, converting more of the influent BOD loading and reducing the amount of solids to be dried and hauled from the plant. 

A second benefit of the ATAD process is the nitrification/denitrification process inherent to the ATAD technology, which converts ammonia and nitrogen very efficiently.  

Over the past 10 years, the system has proven itself to be reliable and accurate in terms of operation, employing a sophisticated computer system to control the entire process and requiring little operator input from start to finished product.
