Successful commissioning of ammonia treatment plant

Published by

At ENPAR Technologies’ Virginia site, the AmmEL plant is successfully reducing toxic ammonia in waste water from concentrations exceeding 175 ppm to less than 1 ppm. This robust system will operate continuously or intermittently during periods of limited precipitation.

ENPAR's patented AmmEL system is a proven approach capable of achieving strict treatment guidelines even under extremely cold water conditions (0°C). In contrast to conventional treatment approaches, this disruptive technology converts toxic ammonia into environmentally friendly nitrogen gas without producing nitrate (a carcinogen) or the well-known greenhouse gas nitrous oxide (releasing 1 kg of N2O into the atmosphere is reportedly equivalent to 298 kg of CO2).

Dr. Shelp commented that: "The success of ENPAR's first commercial installation in the USA represents a launching platform for ENPAR's disruptive patented ammonia treatment system in North America and abroad. ENPAR is confident that this commercial success will translate into numerous additional near-term sales and facilitate future business opportunities in the municipal and industrial sectors. To this end, ENPAR and its Associate Engineering Firm in the USA are actively pursuing opportunities with a high probability of success."
