The EnviTreat laboratory specializes in conducting testing to determine the biological (aerobic/anaerobic) and physical/chemical treatability of industrial and municipal wastewater. Testing services and mathematical modeling are also used to evaluate the health of biological systems, improve performance, ensure regulatory permit compliance, and troubleshoot systems that are experiencing suboptimal performance or failure.
Testing services include analytics, lab scale, and pilot scale testing. Results are used by plant owners, operators, and engineers for feasibility, design, and operations/troubleshooting. EnviTreat can also estimate Greenhouse Gas savings and CA-GREET calculation to determine Low Carbon Fuel Standard credits based on optimized methane production.

EnviTreat testing protocols include the use of highly specialized measurement techniques, including using respirometers for monitoring biological reactions, bench scale batch reactors to define reaction kinetics needed to determine treatability of industrial wastes, and continuously fed reactors to determine the mass loading relationships necessary to design full scale facilities. EnviTreat has developed a specialized expertise in the design and use of such equipment for the intended purposes. These tests typically require 10–90 days to identify all the factors affecting wastewater treatability and to determine mass loading and design parameters.
EnviTreat provides testing for design, problem diagnostics, and operational optimization for biological and physical/chemical waste treatment systems. Examples of our testing techniques and technologies that are applicable to biological systems include activated sludge, attached growth, membrane, anaerobic, and compost systems. Example physical/chemical test methods include precipitation, coagulation, flocculation, clarification, filtration, carbon adsorption, and membrane filtration. Data that are produced provide municipal, industrial, and consulting engineering clients with reliable performance data to support design and performance analysis to meet project goals, reduce risk, and facilitate operations decision-making.
