Who we are

ecoProducts Limited was founded to develop products to create clean water. We maintain a state-of-the-art Development Laboratory in Lakeland, FL, with full analytical instrumentation and expertise in qualitative and quantitative characterization as well as process chemistry basic and applied research. The Lab analyzes wastewater samples and recommends treatment programs, including coagulant, flocculent, and polymer treatments. Multiple pilot-scale process lines for the phosphorus removal process are used for testing of site samples.

We take clean, fresh water for granted. Excess nutrients, especially Phosphorus, are changing that. Phosphorus dissolved in water, together with nitrogen, accelerates vegetative growth. This is well known. In our water systems, when this growth becomes excessive, it will displace or kill other aquatic life. Worse, some algae species produce powerful toxins that can kill aquatic animals and make us sick.

Once a body of water attains a high enough level of Phosphorus, a vicious cycle begins that becomes very difficult to stop. We sometimes forget that 73% of our atmosphere is nitrogen. It is everywhere. It is an important part of the puzzle. But, only when the catalyst ortho (water soluble) phosphate is present, can explosive vegetative growth occur.

ecoProducts Limited has a patent-pending water treatment process- focused on total phosphorus removal- that relies on chemical reaction and physical separation. Our process achieves less than 10 ppb total phosphorus – regardless of the influent phosphorus concentration. It utilizes aquatically safe, water treatment-approved chemicals that meet EPA guidelines, and it can remediate other impurities in addition to phosphorus- most notably, fluorine and arsenic.

We all drink from the same well.

What we do.

Phosphorus is a key element for the growth of every plant, animal and human being, so critical that it is incorporated into the DNA of every living organism. Phosphorus originates in the food chain from fertilizers we apply to crops, food we feed animals, the meat and vegetables we eat. We produce technologies that remove excess phosphorus from water.

Where does Phosphorus come from?

Phosphorus in the water systems originates from the processing of the wastes from these activities as well as run-off from agricultural activities, and to a lesser degree from chemicals used in support of human activities.

We all remember when detergents contained significant phosphorus. This source was virtually eliminated when detergent manufacturers were required to change their formulations.

What can we do about it?

Currently there is no rapid solution to this problem, in fact, the only solution is to dedicate large land areas to the creation of storm water treatment areas to hold and remove soluble Phosphrous through vegetative action in marsh and wetland areas.

This is an expensive, land intensive solution that is really only temporary unless wetland acreage is continually added to the treatment inventory. These treatment wetlands simply reach their capacity to remove phosphorus unless very expensive vegetation and sediment removal is accomplished routinely.

The Bad News

How are Crop Yields affected?

As agricultural activities are continually pressed to maximize crop yields, additional Phosphorus must be applied to achieve the desired yields. There is a strong correlation between increasing crop yields, the increase in applied Phosphorus and the resulting increase in the hypoxic zone in the Gulf of Mexico. This scenario plays out in every watershed in the country and is devastating to the individual watershed or water body.

News & Updates

ecoProducts is presently conducting demonstrations at various municipal water districts. These test have achieved spectacular results by removing phosphorus to below detectable limits.

Prairie du Chien Waste Water Plant

On June 11th, 2015, ecoProducts Limited conducted a successful demonstration of its patent-pending phosphorus removal technology at a municipal wastewater treatment plant. This tertiary treatment to the effluent stream of the Prairie du Chien, Wisoconsin Wastewater Treatment Plant, produced remarkable, third party verified results:

The ecoProducts process removed Total Phosphorus to below detectable limits. This remarkable result was confirmed by a 3rd party laboratory.

Storm Lake, Iowa Wastewater Plant

The week of June 29th, ecoProducts Limited conducted a second successful demonstration of its patent-pending phosphorus removal technology at Storm Lake, Iowa Wastewater Treatment The effluent from this plant currently varies between 4000 and 8000 ppb total phosphorus.

The ecoProducts process removed Total Phosphorus to below detectable limits. This remarkable result was confirmed by a 3rd party laboratory.

Special thanks to Congressman Steve King (R-IA) for visiting and discussing with us the future environmental challenges and to observe our demonstration.

Stunning Results for Phosphorus Removal

The ecoProducts team recently set up their mobile lab next to the Storm Lake, IA Wastewater Treatment Plant. After several days of testing, They were able to remove nearly 98% of Total Phosphorus after only one pass through their system. After the second pass, total phosphorus levels were virtually undetectable.

Storm Lake Wastewater Treatment Plant - Live Demonstration/test site

Water In

Phosphorus - (4300 ppb)

(4300 ppb = 100%)

Water flows through the process at a rate higher than the discharge limit in many jurisdictions

After First Stage

Phosphorus - (110 ppb)

(110 ppb = 2.3%)

After just one stage, the water is cleaned to levels well below established discharge limits!

After Second Stage

Phosphorus - (<20 ppb)

(<20 ppb = .02%)

After the second stage, Phosphorus has been reduced to below detectable levels.

Dramatically Reduced Bacterial Levels

Another significant result was the dramatic reduction in bacteria counts.

Water In

Coliform - (MPN/100mL)
E.coli - (MPN/100mL)

After First Stage

Coliform - (MPN/100mL)
E.coli - (MPN/100mL)

After Second Stage

Coliform - (MPN/100mL)
E.coli - (MPN/100mL)

Detailed Results

A variety of measurements are taken prior to beginning treatment, and after the first, and second stage of the process. The performance of the ecoProducts water treatment process is simply stunning.
