The water and wastewater segments will play a critical role in stabilizing utility-related construction through the forecast period. FMI Research projects that both segments’ construction put-in-place, taken together, will grow at an annualized rate of about 4 percent from 2018 to 2022. While water and wastewater construction spend is not expected to rise to the level of industry highs recorded in 2008, it is expected to come close by the end of the forecast period.
BioMicrobics Named Top 10 Wastewater Solution Providers of 2019
Effective Wastewater Treatment for Sustainable Future
BioMicrobics provides scalable and cost-effective technology for treating and managing wastewater, grey water, and stormwater sources land and sea.
Location: Lenexa, KS
Management: Bob Rebori, President
When Bob Rebori, President of BioMicrobics, Inc., ventured into the realm of wastewater treatment after working as an industrial engineer in New Jersey and relocating to Kansas after 1981, it was for a company with a focus on large municipal water and wastewater treatment plants. Typically, these conventional methods of handling sewage are expensive to set-up, difficult to operate, and needed more labor and cost for maintenance. After 14 years and arose as Vice President of Operations for the International Division, he knew that scaling up the MicroFAST® decentralized technology was the future of wastewater management.
With the founding of BioMicrobics in 1996, Rebori disrupted the wastewater management industry with offerings that were not only simple to install and maintain but also cost-effective and robust for both land- and ocean-based. Having products, personnel, and policies at the core of its business strategy and with this worldwide emphasis on environmental concerns, BioMicrobics’ aid engineers in choosing the right product that works for them. These pre-engineered “Fixed Integrated Treatment Technologies” (FITT®) conforms to health, safety, and environmental protection standards that are ‘made to stock’ to meet the immediate demands of installers, distributors, developers and local operators.
“With more than 70,000 wastewater treatment systems installed in over 70 countries, we assist clients with more options and high-performance technology to meet and exceed regulatory compliance and end goals for water quality, including water reuse opportunities,” states Rebori, President of BioMicrobics.
Unlike most other systems that need full-time operators, BioMicrobics’ systems need low maintenance. Besides, BioMicrobics has committed to investing in continuous R&D for better and more refined products. “97 percent of our product development money is utilized in developing widgets to meet the price points of global markets and help clients with affordable prices,” says Rebori.
For instance, the changing regulations and mandatory conservation methods in California with rising droughts have compelled Napa Valley wineries, such as of the Castello di Amorosa winery, to search for wastewater systems that provide water reuse to cope with the increased water-use restrictions. The owners of the winery selected the BioMicrobics BioBarrier® HSMBR® (high strength membrane bioreactor) for its best treatment-system science, design, and tank material. The optional replacement of the winery’s concrete tanks with three 22,000-gallon/ 83,000-liter fiberglass water tanks were also part of the project, which had BioBarrier® HSMBR® (High Strength Membrane Bioreactor) treatment systems preinstalled. In the first year of this system’s operation more than 1.35 million gallons of wastewater was treated and resultant clean water was used in numerous ways, including vineyard irrigation. The winery got Napa Green-certification, which means they met all the regulatory components of environmental sustainability.
BioMicrobics scales up several of its wastewater treatment technologies to flow capacities from 150 gallons per day to 2,000,000 gallons per day. Currently, BioMicrobics delvers systems that meet Net-Zero Water (NZW) goals to treat and recycle 100% of wastewater back into drinking water quality. The company has already demonstrated these new NZW systems in a project with Miami University, where students are using the treated wastewater for cooking, cleaning, and even washing. The company also convenes training and workshops in-house and at the more than 40 tradeshows, Fairs, and Expositions on wastewater, greywater, and stormwater systems.
Additionally, BioMicrobics’ subsidiaries—Scienco/FAST (Type II Marine Sanitation Devices & sodium hypochlorite generators) and SeptiTech (trickling filter systems)—provide clean water across the world with onsite systems that deliver energy-efficient wastewater treatment. These wastewater treatment systems are designed for residential, commercial and community applications.
Moving forward, BioMicrobics will continue to focus on innovative, advanced wastewater treatment systems, septic system alternative products, and stormwater treatment that provide unique solutions for decentralized homes, clustered subdivisions, commercial properties and small municipalities around the world.
