All of our representatives are degreed individuals
from diverse backgrounds with hand-on operation
experience of biological treatment processes.

Our Treatability Lab is one of our many tools used to predict
and troubleshoot problems for multiple industrial waste streams.

We don’t just sell products, but turn key Product Programs
that link our products to regular laboratory testing and technical
assistance together to keep biological treatment systems fully optimized.


Diatomacous Earth


A Brewery was having difficulty maintaining sludge bed in their granular anaerobic reactor. The bottom bed had “mushy” granules and was losing solids. It was costing tens of thousands of dollars to refill the reactor to maintain operation yearly.

The REAL COD Removal by a Methanator

Methanators perform their best when the COD removal is consistently above 95%.  This not only reduces many of the organic acids, including acetic, but keeps the bugs in the reactor.  The difference between Methanators that run 90% removal and 95% removal is much more than just 5%.  Buried in that 5% is the difference between growing bugs and buying bugs. 

Met Source AN Case Study


The client’s high rate anaerobic treatment process was failing to hold granular sludge, and had efficiency and operational problems, including low process stability. Higher organic loadings created larger VFA’s in the system effluent. High VFA's loaded the aerobic system. A cost effective solution was desired. River Bend Lab, with their biological expertise, was asked to investigate the problem and provide a solution.
