Water Treatment


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

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. Nova Q’s approach, based on our unique ACF products, provide a robust solution to all of these challenges.

ACF are broad spectrum bacteria products, including a range of species:
  • Aerobic
  • Facultative
  • Anaerobic
  • Photosynthetic
  • Chemotrophic
All in stable ready-to-use liquid products.

ACF Products


Our ACF products function in most environments between pH 4 and 9 and with 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.
ACF 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. In line with our focus on Environmental Sustainability, all ACF 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.

In waste water treatment, ACF 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 ACF microbial products will also reduce sludge generation and increase the plant’s capacity to survive and recover from shock loads.

Biological Wastewater Treatment Training


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