WRF Technology Scan: Contaminant Removal


The Water Research Foundation's Technology Scan webcasts are designed to help you become a Utility of the Future! This webcast focused on innovative water technologies related to contaminent removal. The following products and systems were featured during the presentation:
Ingenieria de Obras Zaragoza S.L. – Puremust-sn®
Puremust-sn® is a patented, cost-effective, environmentally friendly system for nitrate removal from groundwater. It uses non-pathogen nitrate-reducing bacteria (NRB) to eliminate nitrates through a reduction-oxidation process (denitrification). Certification from SGS confirms that Puremust-sn® can achieve nearly 100% nitrate reduction from concentrations as high as 1400 mg/L.
