Ammonia Treatment


Unlike the traditional expensive nitrification-denitrification method for removing nitrogen which requires large amounts of energy and methanol, the conDEA™ process uses ammonia oxidizing bacteria (AOB) and anaerobic ammonium oxidizing bacteria (Anammox) to efficiently and reliably remove ammonia from wastewater. This is the process of deammonification which uses 60 percent less energy, completely eliminates the need for methanol, and produces 90 percent less sludge than traditional systems. This reduces costs and is very environmentally friendly - the anammox based conDEA™ process features a low carbon footprint since it sequesters carbon dioxide.
