The company has partnered with DC Water & the Hampton Roads Sanitation District
World Water Works Inc. has been selected by the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water) and the Hampton Roads Sanitation District (HRSD) to bring their patent-pending AVN technology to the global market.
The technology, which is named for the balance it achieves in ammonia oxidizing bacteria (AOB) vs. nitrite oxidizing bacteria (NOB), utilizes a proprietary control strategy, applying selective pressure to aid in the segregation of the desired bacterial populations. This allows wastewater treatment systems to achieve more efficient removal of total nitrogen.
AVN will deliver a return on investment to customers by managing the influent carbon, minimizing the alkalinity demands and reducing the energy requirement of the system while maintaining superior effluent quality. AVN is the ACE (alkalinity, carbon, energy) solution for removing ammonia in the mainstream treatment activated sludge process.
“We are extremely excited to partner with DC Water and HRSD and their team of elite scientists and engineers to deliver this game-changing technology to the market,” said World Water Works CEO Mark Fosshage. World Water Works was selected through a public bidding process.
World Water Works was also recently selected to provide its Demon wastewater deammonification system to DC Water’s Blue Plains Advanced Wastewater Treatment Plant.
