Algal Turf Scrubber® systems are supported by a 30-year performance record in research and commercial applications.

HydroMentia End ProductsSince the late 1970s, researchers from around the U.S. have developed the use of Algal Turf Scrubber® systems for recovery of excess nitrogen and phosphorus from domestic and agricultural wastewater, and more recently stormwater. These studies repeatedly showed that Algal Turf Scrubber® systems were capable of effectively recovering nutrient pollutants for a broad range of water quality conditions.

Today, with advanced design and biomass recovery methods, the Algal Turf Scrubber® has the ability to cost-effectively remove nutrient pollutants from impaired surface waters and provide a valuable tool to meet TMDL requirements.
