Successful commissioning of ammonia treatment plant

Published by , Digital Assistant Editor

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."
