Wayne, Neb., OKs BioShaft Pilot Plant
BioShaft Water Technology Inc. announced on Dec. 9 that through a proposal by its agent Light Environmental, a pilot plant in Wayne, Neb., has been accepted by the city council.
BioShaft will set up a 10,568 gallon per day pilot unit in Wayne for three months. The city will be able to perform daily tests at the plant and compile data that will be compared against the current system, a rotating biological contactor system.
Hans Badreddine, Ph.D., president of BioShaft said: “This pilot plant is very significant to the company and our expansion into the United States. We are very excited to be working with the city of Wayne, Nebraska, to set up a pilot plant for their engineers to test our system and provide data that can be compared against existing systems. We believe that our plants will perform much better, more cost effectively, and much more environmentally friendly than current systems being used in the U.S.”
BioShaft is a green innovative wastewater treatment technology based on biofiltration using biofilm carriers. These plants are made using the BioShaft Turbo Reactor that is at the heart of the wastewater technology. The plant virtually eliminates sludge and odors and requires significantly less land. It is patented in the UK and the patent is pending in the United States. To date there are more than 30 waste water treatment plants throughout the world using this technology.
