CLEARAS Water Recovery was founded in 2008 to advance the concept of waste recovery to value. Our patented ABNR wastewater solution is an advanced, non-chemical treatment that recovers phosphorus and nitrogen while reducing other harmful contaminants. As a modular and bolt-on system, this technology scales to any available footprint and integrates seamlessly into existing wastewater treatment infrastructure to prevent system downtime and flow disruption, while maintaining the flexibility to meet a variety of effluent discharge requirements. The ABNR system achieves best in class tertiary water quality, recovering both phosphorus and nitrogen to near non-detect levels.
