Bishop BioCord™ Reactors

Simple, low-energy nutrient removal — even at 1°C

Bishop BioCord Reactors. Simple, low-energy nutrient removal -- even at 1C

Bishop BioCord™ Reactors biological nutrient removal provides a simple and efficient way to dramatically increase capacity and performance of a wastewater lagoon or conventional activated sludge plant without expanding footprint.

  • Achieve up to 99% ammonia reduction in difficult treatment conditions such as during cold weather or when experiencing high-strength or variable loading;
  • Low-energy, self-regulating process;
  • The fixed-film, modular system is like a condominium for bacteria on which preferred, naturally occurring bacteria can thrive;
  • Flexible, modular design that can be customized to fit virtually any secondary treatment process and handle anticipated flow and loading parameters.

ClariPhos™ Rare Earth Coagulant

Reduce sludge production and achieve ultra-low phosphorus levels without tertiary filtration

ClariPhos™ is a unique rare-earth based coagulant that offers a simple, affordable way to achieve ultra-low phosphorus levels—as low as 0.07 mg/L—in treated effluent without the need for costly tertiary filtration systems.

  • An advanced treatment technology that outperforms conventional alum- and ferric-based coagulants
  • Made with rare earth minerals that bond more tightly to phosphorus to form a denser, heavier precipitate that settles about two times faster than alternatives.
  • Reduces sludge production by up to 50% since far less of the chemical is needed to achieve excellent phosphorus removal.
  • Additional benefits include improved sludge dewatering, can be safely handled in temperatures as low as -40C, inhibits struvite build-up and eliminates staining or discolouration of facility structures.
