The Clearas ABNR Solution

Clearas Advanced Biological Nutrient Recovery (ABNR™) system is a controlled and continuous flow environment that leverages a facility’s existing microbiology – algae and other biological organisms – to recover excess phosphorus, nitrogen and other high-profile contaminants in wastewater.

An extension of the activated sludge process, our patented ABNR system is a bolt-on and modular solution that scales as your needs grow – seamlessly integrating into your existing wastewater treatment infrastructure.

  • 10X reduction in phosphorus to below-ENR levels
  • 3X reduction in nitrogen to below-ENR levels
  • Multi-constituent remediation
  • Competitive total cost of ownership
  • Modular and scalable design
  • Sustainable, biological and chemical-free

How It Performs

Achieving lower levels than any other solutions, Clearas reduces phosphorus by an average of 93% and nitrogen by an average of 33% from influent to effluent for our municipal and industrial clients at ENR levels.

    “Every batch that we have run through this plant, the final product has come back with zero detect for any nutrients. Another micro-filtration pilot program we ran, which was a mechanical process, got us to the limit for phosphorus, but nothing other than phosphorus and the cost was prohibitive. With this process, we are not only achieving no detect on phosphorus, it’s taking care of nitrogens, the BODs, the suspended solids, and the trace elements like copper.” - Roberts Public Works Director, John Bond
