CLEARAS Water Recovery’s System Installed at Utah Water Treatment Plant

ABO member CLEARAS Water Recovery recently announced that the South Davis Sewer District just outside Salt Lake City will soon be using the company’s advanced algae-based nutrient recovery technology at a 4,000,000 gallon per day water treatment plant.

CLEARAS joins ABO member Qualitas Health, alongside several aquaculture leaders, that have made major announcements in the past month indicating algae-based technologies are establishing a foothold in several markets.

CLEARAS’ Advanced Biological Nutrient Recovery (ABNR™) system harnesses algae and other microorganisms to continuously treat water in a variety of settings. The process offers a cost-effective and environmentally friendly way to recover excess phosphorus, nitrogen and other high-profile contaminants, while also capturing carbon dioxide. The system is easily added to the existing treatment plant, and its modular design makes scaling a simple matter of adding more units.  

“ABNR has the potential to change the way we think about wastewater treatment and we are excited to have partnered with CLEARAS to advance the next generation of wastewater treatment and resource recovery.” said Dal Wayment, General Manager of the South Davis Sewer District. 

ABO congratulates CLEARAS, and their partners at the South Davis Sewer District for taking this forward-looking step. We look forward to more progress!

Want a first-hand look at this innovative project? The facility will be featured in tours available to attendees of the 2017 Algae Biomass Summit, being held in Salt Lake City, October 29-November 1.

More information is available in this press release.
