'High tech farming': Missoula company cleans wastewater to feed algae for biofuel, fertilizer

The Missoulian
It’s not often that a business comes up with an idea that’s good for the environment and saves money at the same time. But that’s what Clearas Water Recovery, a Missoula tech company, believes it has done. Formed eight years ago, the company has developed a patented process to use algae to remove nitrogen and phosphorous from public wastewater treatment plants, keeping waterways from being inundated with the compounds that starve fish and plant life of oxygen. In turn, the algae can be sold to other companies for fertilizer, biofuels and other uses. Think of it as high tech farming. Follow the link to read more...

Roberts: Clean water technology could have global impact

New Richmond News
“Every batch that we have run through this plant, the final product has come back with zero detect for any nutrients. Another micro-filtration pilot program we ran, which was a mechanical process, got us to the limit for phosphorus, but nothing other than phosphorus and the cost was prohibitive. With this process, we are not only achieving no detect on phosphorus, it’s taking care of nitrogens, the BODs, the suspended solids, and the trace elements like copper.” - Roberts Public Works Director, John Bond
