Since our early days, H2O Innovation has been a leading supplier of water treatment equipment, chemicals, consumables, spare parts, and site services for biofuels producers throughout the US and Canada. Whether for boiler or cooling tower feedwater, cooling tower bypass filtration, wastewater treatment, or more recently the production of USP Grade ethanol for hand sanitizer, H2O innovation can tailor a solution specifically for your site, your application. Our experienced team understands the unique challenges associated with production of renewable fuels, and we continue to focus on supporting the ethanol and biodiesel industries in North America.
H2O Innovation is a proud member of Growth Energy, Iowa Renewable Fuels Association (IRFA), and the American Coalition for Ethanol (ACE).
Ethanol Plant Installations
H2O Innovation has built equipment – including membrane systems, media filtration, and ion exchange – for over 80 ethanol plants. You can see our extensive installed based in the map below.
Your unique problem requires a unique solution based on footprint, water quality, membrane replacement considerations, and operational constraints. The solution comes from a thoughtful assembly of individual unit process operations to achieve your end goals. Below are the most common technologies H2O Innovation relies on for Biofuels projects.
Reverse Osmosis & Nanofiltration
Nanofiltration and reverse osmosis can be part of the treatment chain for cooling water recycling, make-up water treatment, produced water treatment, etc.
Ultrafiltration and microfiltration
Ahead of an NF/RO unit operation, ultrafiltration and microfiltration can be part of the treatment chain for cooling water recycling, make-up water treatment, produced water treatment, etc.
Ceramic Membrane System
Nanostone Water manufactures a unique high surface area ceramic ultrafiltration membrane module for municipal and industrial water/wastewater treatment.
Multimedia and greensand filters can be used as stand-alone systems to primarily remove particulate, iron, and manganese. They can also be used as part of the pretreatment chain in front of reverse osmosis.
SILO is a simplified approach to membrane bioreactor (MBR) treatment for smaller applications where ease of operation and low maintenance is necessary
Even after the design and construction of a project are complete, the relationship is just beginning. We make sure clients are supported with a full suite of services.
