Drain Water Sampling

Bioreactor for Removal of Nitrates in Agricultural Water

Verum Group is putting its experience in 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 Nitrates from tile drain water. For that purpose, we are trialing out 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 the bacteria to flourish and reduce the nitrate to nitrogen. Regular monitoring will be completed to quantify the effectiveness and of this innovative water treatment system. If you want to know more about that innovative project, contact h.christenson@verumgroup.co.nz
