Early in the system's development, the Natural Resource Research Institute and the University of Minnesota recognized it as a platform for gaining a better understanding of the sulfate reduction process. The data quickly confirmed excellent sulfate reduction and reliable operation in winter as well as summer.
The Clearwater BioLogic system can handle any flow rate of water and high sulfate concentrations. Most importantly for Minnesota, this system can reduce sulfate concentrations to meet the federal standards or even the Minnesota wild rice standard
Inside these modules, surface area and void volume for water flow and bacteria attachment are key. Using reclaimed plastic fibers, the Clearwater BioLogic module design provides enormous economic and performance advantages over other bioreactors.
