Symbios Technologies’ customers vary widely and come from multiple disciplines driven by an overwhelming need for advanced water treatment technologies as clean water becomes a more precious resource.
For manufacturing applications, process waters must meet exacting requirements for customer and regulatory acceptance of the finished product. Produced water from the manufacturing process can be contaminated with a range of hazardous compounds and microbes that must be adequately treated before the waters can be discharged into the environment, highlighting the need for more sustainable and green water treatment practices that have minimal chemical reagent and power usage requirements.
Utility water treatment applications encompass markets in both the private and public sector, ranging from municipal to household to industrial treatment for power plant cooling towers. In the oil & gas and other similar industries, the need for enhanced methods for the treatment of produced waters is critical to increase recycling and reuse.
The biosciences field is addressing an overwhelming public health burden relating to hospital-acquired infections, where advanced disinfectant methods are needed. Additionally, the promise for aqueous plasma chemotherapeutics as an advanced cancer treatment with less toxicity and fewer side effects addresses a severe deficiency in the medical community.
The Symbios Tubular Plasma Reactor™ (TPR™) has demonstrated better cost, efficacy, and sustainability potential in all of these markets and represents an important alternative to current solutions that are plagued with severe deficiencies.
