Aqua-Aerobic Systems unveils new research center Aug. 16
LOVES PARK, Ill. — Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc., in partnership with the Rock River Water Reclamation District (RRWRD), will host an open house and ribbon-cutting event at 9:30 a.m., Thursday, Aug. 16, to announce the new Aqua-Aerobic Systems’ Research and Technology Center at the RRWRD’s central treatment plant.
In 2011, Aqua-Aerobic Systems and the RRWRD entered into a long-term agreement that allowed Aqua-Aerobic Systems to build an on-site research facility for the purpose of applied research and demonstration of new products and process technologies used in the treatment of wastewater.
This collaboration allows Aqua-Aerobic Systems access to a variety of in-plant process wastewater streams from a full scale wastewater treatment plant, which is integral in developing and testing new products and process concepts for future commercialization and applications, both domestically and internationally.
The RRWRD will benefit from the new Research and Technology Center through information sharing, technical and operational critiques and firsthand information about future product and technology developments.
Collaborative efforts of the partnership have successfully been demonstrated so far through the construction phase of the new facility. RRWRD and Aqua-Aerobic Systems have worked together in the selection of the building site, building architectural details, the permitting process and contractor selections.
The new center utilizes the company’s Cloth Media Filtration products and Membrane Technologies to conduct research and testing.
Following brief presentations by company staff and special guests, refreshments will be provided, along with a facility tour and equipment demonstrations.
Aqua-Aerobic Systems, Inc., is a leader in the design, application and manufacture of wastewater treatment equipment and systems, providing thousands of customers around the world with innovative technologies while continuing its dedication to ongoing applied research, product development and research partnerships.
Founded in 1926, RRWRD provides wastewater treatment services to more than 240,000 users over nearly 88 square miles of Winnebago County.
