Experience: Chemical Compounds

At SBRT, we have conducted a tremendous amount of research and implementations to rid water of different chemicals that range from those found in pulp and paper mill effluents to those found in pesticides and pharmaceutical plant wastewater. Below are just some of the chemicals and compounds we have grown very familiar with over the years:
