Aligned with today’s Net Zero Agenda

Elentec’s longstanding goals of resource recovery from ‘waste’ (nutrients, energy, water) are well aligned with today’s Net Zero agenda.

In Close Collaboration with Academic Partners

Elentec links its commercial activity with an R&D programme maintained in close collaboration with academic partners. The work is focused on the recovery of phosphorous, nitrogen and water from agricultural sources such as Farm Slurry and Digestate (Link to Farmers Weekly article).

This work aims at improving farming sustainability whilst simultaneously delivering better efficiency and returns.

Applications and what the technology does:

As a replacement technology for typical chemical coagulation, the same range of applications apply. Below is a list of applications where Elentec EC has been tested.

Elentec EC technology has been applied over a range of industries including: Automotive, Anaerobic Digestion, Municipal Effluent, Aquaculture, Mining, Brewing, Metal Finishing, Dairy

  • Removes heavy metals from waste streams

  • Removes phosphate/phosphorus from effluent streams

  • Removes arsenic from contaminated groundwater

  • Reduces solids in waste streams

  • Removes contaminants from shipping/marine effluent

  • Treats process water for recycling

  • Treats waste from anaerobic digestion and other agricultural processes

  • Emergency and disaster recovery units
