Schwing Bioset Wraps Up WEFTEC 2017 Tradeshow


Written by Kelly Kramer, October 5, 2017

The Schwing Bioset team has now wrapped up our largest trade show display of the year at WEFTEC 2017. Thank you to everyone who stopped by our booth, enjoyed breakfast in our booth, or sent one of your contacts our way. We were able to meet with friends and customers, new and old, to discuss existing and potential projects. Here are a couple of our highlights from the show. 

Capitalizing on Schwing Bioset’s experience and reputation for providing high-quality equipment to the North American wastewater market, and Econity’s premier MBR technology, the two companies formed a partnership for sales in North America. A licensing agreement for Schwing Bioset to promote the Econity MBR technology was formalized with a contract signing ceremony at the WEFTEC conference on October 2, 2017 in Chicago, IL. Tom Anderson from Schwing Bioset and Dr. Moon Seog Jang from Econity, presidents of their respective firms, were both on hand for the event.

An overall integrated phosphate management plan is an important component of a wastewater plant’s operations.  As new regulations come into effect requiring wastewater plants to lower their phosphorus discharges, it is becoming increasingly clear that new ways of thinking about and managing phosphorus will be necessary.  These new solutions will also address the common issue of struvite formation that create mechanical failures and maintenance issues within the plants, which increase O&M expenditures.

Schwing Bioset’s Chuck Wanstrom was honored to lead a mobile session presentation during the 2017 WEFTEC exhibition, discussing current technologies available to wastewater facilities to address these issues. Included were methods to solve plant-specific issues associated with phosphorus to prevent nuisance struvite scaling, improve the diminished dewatering performance associated with biological phosphorus removal, and reduce phosphorus return loads within the plant. To learn more about how Schwing Bioset can help alleviate issues resulting from phosphorus in your plant, please view this page or contact us.
