    Helping treatment plant operators get the maximum from their systems, combining technical expertise with the AquaClean™ biological product range.


Nova Q operates across several areas in the water industry. From biological treatment of wastewater (municipal, industrial and domestic) ponds, lakes and rivers, to anaerobic digestion, odour prevention and activated carbon. Browse through each area below and let us know how we can help you.

Waste Water Treatments

Waste water treatment is generally a biological process. Whilst municipal projects tend to struggle more with hydraulic issues, with industrial projects the challenges tend to be different: variable organic load; high solids; fats; ammonia; de-nitrification; sludge yield efficiency and odour are most common.

AquaClean™ products provide a robust solution to all of these challenges. Broad spectrum bacteria products, with aerobic, facultative anaerobic, photosynthetic and chemotrophic species, in stable ready to use liquid products. They will function in most environments between pH 4 and 9 and temperatures up to 40°C, as well as high ammonia in thousands of ppm. They can also be manipulated to treat the most complex of wastes, including hydrocarbons (including creosote) and complex industrial chemicals.

AquaClean™ products are practical and effective due to the unique methods of brewing, concentrating and stabilising massive numbers of live nitrifying bacteria for use in all waste water systems, from domestic sewage to industrial systems.

AquaClean™ products are natural, non-pathogenic and with no genetically modified organisms. The products have proven time and again to quickly restore treatment plants to full activity following all too familiar toxic shocks whether from high loadings or difficult to digest waste. The bacteria decrease the total dissolved solids of the liquid effluent, the result being plant capacity and efficiency is improved.

Nova Q also provides advice and support to waste water clients from a biological viewpoint, often providing a fresh perspective to the traditional engineering focused advice.

In waste water treatment, AquaClean™ Products provide the following benefits:

  • Improved performance in COD/BOD, sludge yield parameters
  • Advanced nitrification capabilities, eliminating high ammonia loads
  • Eliminate odour
  • Rapidly re-seed and restart of failed plants
  • Enhance the recoverability of a plant susceptible to regular shock

Both ready to use and bio-reactor versions are available, as well as complimentary “Nitrifier Activator” macro/micro nutrient blends to speed up and enhance applications.

Regular maintenance doses of AquaClean™ microbial products will also reduce sludge generation and increase the plant’s capacity to survive and recover from shock loads

Industrial Waste Water:

Every WWTP is different – that’s the challenge with industrial effluent: High strength; inhibition; variable hydraulic load; toxic shock; there’s no limit to the complexities faced. Understanding the biology and how to “train” and adapt bacteria species for enhanced functionality is a core competence at Nova Q. Nitrification is an area where we have developed a wealth of experience. Cycling ammonia, enhancing nitrite removal and adapting systems to reduce nitrate – there are all biological functions for which we have the technical expertise and ready-to-use products.

Let us know what challenges you face and get a new perspective on how to eliminate downtime.

Technical Support:

What makes wastewater treatment so challenging is that it crosses biology, chemistry, engineering and human behaviour. The broad experience gained at Nova Q by working with water, remediation, agriculture, aquaculture, organics recycling, food, pharmaceutical, chemical industries across Europe means we have seen a lot and learnt a lot about what solutions are best for each challenge.

Our tech support team not only offer support with our own products but have access to a wealth of knowledge throughout our network of Global AquaClean™ Distributors. We also supply the industrial WWTP market through specialists Celtic Watercare in Cork.
