The village of Roberts and CLEARAS Water Recovery Inc. are coming close to unveiling their new ground-breaking water treatment solution. Considered to be a first-of-its-kind in the world, anticipation about the new technology are understaindibly high.
The ground-breaking water treatment is officially titled Advanced Biological Nutrient Recovery (or ABNR, for short) and is inspired by biomimicry in desigh. The technology "harnesses algae's’ appetite for nutrients in a carefully controlled continuous flow environment to remove harmful pollutants from municipal wastewater to deliver effluent that meets the highest water quality standards." Algae is injected into wastewater to consume the phosphorus, nitrogen and other nutrient pollutants found in it. The organisms are seperated from the cleaned water at a later stage through a membrane in a filtration processing tank.
