- Nanobubble Technology
Global temperatures are rising, leading to the depletion of oxygen levels in water and a deterioration of water quality. The world’s health and industrial productivity is adversely affected by poor water quality. Industries require sustainable solutions that enable increases in output without jeopardizing our environment. New technology solutions are paramount to provide an expanding population with food, water and commodities necessary to support this growth.
Moleaer™ develops industrial-scale nanobubble technology that delivers extraordinary improvements in chemical-free water treatment, sustainable food production, and the recovery of natural resources.
Bruce Scholten discovers a new method to produce billions of nanobubbles at an industrial scale.
Discoveries lead to exponential growth in university-led application research and nanobubble commercialization. Moleaer officially launches its first nanobubble generator, focused on supplemental aeration for underperforming wastewater treatment plants.
Research proves that nanobubbles are superior to traditional aeration applications. This is demonstrated with the value that oxygen nanobubbles add to various horticultural cultivation methods, as well as the algae control benefits of injecting air nanobubbles continuously in lakes and ponds. Moleaer delivers its 100th nanobubble systems to customers.
Academic and commercial partnerships continue to demonstrate the industrial potential of nanobubbles: Moleaer installs its first generators in the mining and oil & gas sectors. Moleaer also opens its first international office in the Netherlands, the home of substantial horticultural innovation.
On-site and scientific studies prove that nanobubbles reduce oxygen consumption in salmon and shrimp farming and can also increase yields in outdoor farming. Moleaer delivers its 500th nanobubble system to customers and further expands its international footprint with sales offices in Canada and Mexico.
Moleaer and its partners continue to demonstrate that nanobubbles fundamentally improve productivity across a range of industrial aqueous processes and help customers solve their most challenging environmental, climate-driven problems more responsibly.
“Before, cleaning the filters needed to be completed every four weeks, however, after installing the nanobubble generator that frequency has gone down quite a bit. Washing the sand filter of the fertilizer unit now needs to be done a lot less often as well. The day tank with irrigation water remained clear, almost without any trace of organic contamination. Upon visual inspection during cultivation, the part of the trays treated with Moleaer nanobubbles had a lot more young, thin roots at the bottom of the substrate.”
"This product will revolutionize the way the public sector and homeowner’s associations address water quality in stormwater retention ponds. In less than a month of using the Kingfisher nanobubble equipment, the pond was free of algae and the water was crystal clear. I have managed cities for over 45 years and this product is absolutely amazing."
“The results from the nanobubbles were much faster than I would have expected. As a chemical engineer who specifies equipment as part of my job, I am also impressed with the quality of the design and build of the generator. I am happy with my local technical representative, with Moleaer as a company and with my results. The trout are healthier and the water quality is fantastic. I’m thrilled with all of it. The investment was worth every penny.”
“Moleaer is playing an integral part in helping us to meet compliance standards by reducing water usage, and improving biological oxygen demand (BOD) and total supsended solids (TSS) discharge levels."
"We’re planning to increase production by over 20 million pounds of cheese and whey products over the next 3 years since installing Moleaer equipment in our wastewater process. That includes avoiding $10 million in CAPEX improvements we would have needed to make. We recommend Moleaer’s system for other cheese manufacturers looking to increase their wastewater treatment capacity and production at the same time."
