Powerful Patented Chemistry Solving Difficult Industrial Challenges

AOT products are being used across the country and world to treat recalcitrant organic compounds in wastewater and groundwater.  Our process uses one of our patented organic catalysts plus one of a variety of oxidizing compounds including calcium, magnesium and hydrogen peroxide, percarbonate, ozone, persulphate or permanganate to degrade recalcitrant organic compounds immediately upon contact.  Additionally, our catalyst may be deployed in the presence of oxygen, resulting in an enhanced oxidation effect beyond oxygen alone.  With this technique, wastewater, groundwater, or soil containing organic contaminants can be completely oxidized on contact.  A broad list of treatable chemicals would include selected pesticides, petroleum hydrocarbons, complex cyanides and chlorinated solvents.  Included in the list of readily treatable chemicals are such notable contaminants such as MtBE, TCE, BTEX, and PCE.  AOT catalysts are also extremely effective at removing Hydrogen Sulfide from wastewater and sludge.  When dosed correctly the target organic compound(s) and AOT catalyst are consumed in the treatment process, leaving only CO2, salts and water as final products with complete oxidation.

A Network of Distributors with Proven System Implementation Results

AOT products are  installed by one of our highly-capable distributors located across the US and at select international locations.  Should we believe our products will be effective for your treatment needs, one of our distributors will work with you to design, quote and demonstrate a treatment system.  AOT products can be deployed in a variety of ways and are easily adaptable to existing treatment systems.  The contact time for the oxidation process to occur is short, varying from a few minutes to 3 hours, depending on the nature of the targeted compound(s) and the physics of the matrix in which they are found.  Our products are currently being used to treat wastewater streams ranging from as small as 20,000 gallons per day to 75 million gallons per day.  We have found our treatment systems to be consistently more cost efficient and effective at treatment than our competition because our chemicals do not need to be dosed in extremely high volumes or require the use of complex and expensive deployment equipment.  Our designs are simple – metered injection of the ingredients, rapid in-line mixing, and adequate retention time are the primary design criteria.
