Built and commissioned in 2017, the new full-scale AquaNereda aerobic granular sludge demonstration plant is located at Rock River Water Reclamation District (RRWRD), approximately 10 minutes from the Aqua-Aerobic corporate office in Rockford, IL. The system treats raw wastewater pulled from the RRWRD’s partial flume and is designed to treat an average 200,000 gpd flow. The AquaNereda system targets <10 TSS and BOD, <3 TN and <1TP.
The main objectives for the AquaNereda demonstration plant include:
- Provides a site in the U.S. for educational training and tours
- Grow granules for seeding future AquaNereda plants
- Continue to research new innovations within the system
