What is "Natural Wastewater Treatment"?
A Natural Wastewater Treatment plant or system, is also known as a "constructed wetland" or a "Constructed Ecosystem," and are an environmentally superior alternative to mechanical wastewater treatment systems, which are methods that treat and purify wastewater.
We believe that Natural Wastewater Treatment plants are far superior to the mechanical type of wastewater treatment systems that resolve wastewater treatment problems that occur naturally in the environment, without adding millions of gallons of chemicals and chlorine to the environment.
Natural Wastewater Treatment plants are complex, engineered integrated systems that include water, plants, animals, microorganisms and the local environment that specifically engineered for the specific location and wastewater issues to resolve these wastewater problems. Natural Wastewater Treatment plants interact, naturally, with the sun, soil and air to purify wastewater to levels not reached by mechanical treatment plants.
To the extent that Natural Wastewater Treatment plants are man-made, and that what is provided by nature to be "natural," Natural Wastewater Treatment plants are, in fact, artificial wetlands. The benefit is that Natural Wastewater Treatment plants optimize what would have been artificial into a synergy that maximizes biology, geology and hydrology for specific wastewater problems at specific locations.
Natural Wastewater Treatment plants are the result of human engineering and not only provide superior results when compared with mechanical wastewater treatment plants, but do so with 50% to 70% fewer personnel to operate, and about 60% less expensive top operate, but are also far less prone to upset conditions that plague mechanical wastewater treatment plants.

Wastewater Treatment plants actually generate a return on investment when we
provide complete waste to fuel
solution that utilizes the abundant amounts of biomass we produce with Natural
Wastewater Treatment plants - which then becomes a "feedstock" for
a biomass gasification
plant. The biomass gasification
generates synthesis gas,
which is then used as a fuel for cogeneration
or trigeneration power plant that
When properly engineered (engineering services offered through the REI), designed, built, maintained and operated, Natural Wastewater Treatment plants effectively remove the numerous pollutants associated with agricultural, industrial, municipal (including stormwater) and industrial wastewaters.
Natural Wastewater Treatment plants are particularly effective at removing wastewater contaminants such as; BOD, hydrocarbons, nitrogen, phosphorus, suspended solids, and even metals.
Wastewater Treatment plants are an excellent alternative to mechanical treatment plants at locations
such as; agricultural operations such as; animal feeding operations/CAFOs,
including chicken/poultry operations, dairy farms, hog farms, as well as treating municipal effluent, industrial and commercial wastewater, agricultural runoff, stormwater runoff,
acid mine drainage and landfill leachates.
Natural Wastewater Treatment plants generate no offensive smells, and can serve as a wildlife site which will attract various animals and provide a habitat for them. Natural Wastewater Treatment plants can also serve as a public attraction providing environmental education opportunities.
Did you know that a "Natural Wastewater Treatment" plant costs about 50% to 60% less to build compared with similar-sized mechanical wastewater treatment plants?
Did you know that a "Natural Wastewater Treatment" is significantly more effective and much less complicated than a typical mechanical treatment plant?
Did you know that a "Natural Wastewater Treatment" takes about 50% less staff, on average, to run compared with mechanical wastewater treatment plants?
A typical mechanical treatment plant that would have cost $30 million to build for a city of about 10,000 people is not as effective as as our far more efficient and superior "Natural Wastewater Treatment" plant - which we proposed was for $15 million. An optional Biomass Gasification plant can generate a significant amount of "clean power" for the community's electrical power requirements.
Best of all, our "Natural Wastewater Treatment" plants are significantly more environmentally-friendly than the typical mechanical wastewater treatment plant.
