BioCAST Overview

BioCAST Systems Inc. designs and develops efficient, easy to operate, cost-effective and environment-friendly technologies for the treatment of wastewater, contaminated groundwater and landfill leaches, producing effluents that conform to the increasingly demanding and stringent environmental standards.

  • A High-rate, Efficient and Patented Tertiary Treatment Technology

    Following years of R&D, BioCAST Systems Inc. has developed BioCAST-TER, a high-rate, efficient and patented tertiary treatment technology that uses established biological processes for the removal of organic contaminants as well as nitrogen and phosphorus pollutants from municipal and industrial wastewaters.
  • Odour-Free and Low Capital Cost

    BioCAST-TER has a small footprint, an odour-free operation and requires 15-20% lower capital cost and up to 60% lower operating cost compared to the existing technologies. In addition to significant cost savings, this technology is in accordance with sustainable development practices since it offers an innovative method of sludge management that reduces the amount of generated sludge by up to 60% compared to conventional technologies.
  • Supported by Grants from the Canadian and Quebec Governments

    The hydrodynamic characteristics and treatment performance of BioCAST-TER have been evaluated in several research projects supported by grants from the Canadian and Quebec governments. These research projects resulted in the publication of numerous papers in peer-reviewed research journals and conference proceedings, and many presentations in national and international conferences.
  • Commercialization of Other Proprietary Wastewater Treatment Technologies

    The company pursues the development and commercialization of other proprietary wastewater treatment technologies such as the BioCAST-NR1 that can be used along with a clarification system to produce a clear and well-treated effluent for discharge into surface waters, or for the pre-treatment of high organic load and nutrient-rich wastewaters to make them amenable for treatment by conventional technologies.
