In 2011, Aqua-Aerobic Systems entered into a long-term partnership with the Rock River Water Reclamation District (RRWRD) which allowed Aqua-Aerobic to build an on-site Research & Technology Center at the RRWRD’s central treatment plant. The new facility was constructed for the purpose of conducting applied research and demonstration of new products and process technologies used in the treatment of wastewater. This collaboration allows Aqua-Aerobic access to a variety of in-plant process wastewater streams from a full scale wastewater treatment plant. This arrangement is integral in developing and testing new products and process concepts for future commercialization and applications, both domestically and internationally. The facility is also an integral component to the Aqua-Aerobic seminar and used to demonstrate full-scale, operating technologies to customers.
