Future plans

We have developed our process technology to pilot scale and we now plan to develop it to full-scale. This full-scale system will be designed to allow a range of biological wastewater treatment processes to be developed, starting with tertiary nitrification. The plant will be designed to allow use with different processes with minimal modification. For example, heterotrophic and autotrophic denitrification; anaerobic digestion; as well as aerobic cBOD and SS removal.

Lessons learnt from this full-scale unit will be incorporated into a pre-production prototype for municipal and industrial wastewater treatment.

The experience gained from developing aerobic and anaerobic biological wastewater treatment processes will be directly applicable to the development of processes for fermentation and biocatalysis.
