    Anaerobic Technologies

    Aquatec Maxcon is a leading provider of anaerobic technologies for a variety of applications, with over 47 years’ experience in the field. From high rate anaerobic treatment processes for industrial wastewater treatment applications to more conventional municipal digestion processes, Aquatec Maxcon have access to a wide variety of proprietary and in-house technologies. We conduct extensive research and development in our laboratory as well as field pilot trials to continually improve our technologies.

    Aquatec Maxcon have also built dedicated Waste to Energy facilities which provide municipalities with reduced biosolid disposal costs in addition to additional revenue streams by co-digesting wastes, thereby reducing greenhouse gases by preventing organic waste going to landfill.

    Anaerobic technogies are of interest in the following applications:

    • Processing of organic waste in either slurry or solid form
    • Treatment of high strength wastewater
    • Reducing transport and disposal volumes of biosolids produced by wastewater treatment plants
    • Offsetting site demands for heat and/or power
    • Additional revenue streams via co-digestion where capacity exists in anaerobic digesters
