Applied Biostimulation to Transform Ammonia & Sulfurics into Nitrates & Sulfates

By | 2017-06-30T14:13:53-04:00 December 13th, 2016|AR3C R&D|

A process design concept was formulated where it was theorized that ammonia and sulfur compounds present in retention pond leachate liquid could be transformed into nitrates and sulfates to enhance the liquid’s potential as a nutrient source for plants and organism and also for odour control.  The project involved the application of the engineering process [...]

Water Clarifier/Water Chiller/Heat Transfer System Pilot Plant Prototype

By | 2017-06-30T10:00:06-04:00 December 13th, 2016|AR3C R&D|

In collaboration with a Scientist from Russia, a concept was developed where excess process heat from AR3C’s operations could be recovered and utilized as an energy input for chilling, condensing and distillation and combined in a system to clarify or concentrate solutions containing organic elements. Preliminary designs, engineering evaluations and prototyping were performed that resulted [...]

Algaculture (Algae Production) Project

By | 2017-06-30T10:47:34-04:00 December 13th, 2016|AR3C R&D|

This project conceived that algae might be cultivated within indoor tank photobioreactor environments to produce viable algae growth. Using a host and nutrient solution derived from an upstream biostimulation process, ammonia and sulfur compounds can be converted by microorganisms into nitrates and sulfates.  The harvested algae could be used as a feedstock for a biorefining [...]

WECO2 Parks & AR3C to Develop Process to Produce Liquid Fuel from Syngas using Agriculture Byproducts and Wood Waste Feedstocks

By | 2017-10-18T15:26:10-04:00 November 25th, 2016|AR3C R&D|

WECO2 Parks is excited to announce a collaboration alliance with AR3C and their partners on a project to produce liquid fuel from syngas created by CHP gasification units. CHP gasification units utilize agricultural byproducts and wood waste as its feedstock. These waste materials are prepared as pellets and fed into the gasification unit where the process [...]
