About Wet Tech Enviornmental

Challenges associated with wastewater treatment are prevalent throughout the world. In North America, treatment facilities struggle with a confluence of factors including aging infrastructures, constraints on financing capital upgrades, increased flow, processing demands, more rigorous government regulations and increasing energy costs. These wastewater treatment concerns are not heading in the correct direction, as a result the need for efficient treatment technologies is in high demand.

Adequate treatment and energy consumption for wastewater treatment is an area that can be greatly mitigated with Wet Tech Environmental’s technologies and expertise.

The team at Wet Tech Environmental is comprised of a culmination of wastewater treatment specialists that have spent decades in research, design, and implementation to deliver efficient and economical solutions for wastewater treatment. Our expertise along with our available technologies have enabled solutions for the most difficult wastewater treatment situations.
