Bioreactor for Removal of Nitrates in Agricultural Water

Verum Group is putting their experience in the creation of passive water treatment systems toward a new target, the removal of Nitrates in agricultural water. This research will deliver a system to remove the Nitrate from tile drain water. We are running a trial of the collection of drain water into a bioreactor on a participating farm in the Selwyn region. By providing, additional dissolved carbon into the reactor, we create a favorable environment for bacteria to flourish and reduce the nitrate to nitrogen. Regular monitoring will be completed to quantify the effectiveness of this innovative water treatment system over the next year.
