We design, build and operate wastewater treatment facilities and bio fuels facilities
Are low cost, high efficiency trickle filter digesters that remove nutrients and digest up to 90% of the BOD in a waste water stream by adding additional surface area to an existing waste water treatment facility
DDS has superior cost benefits, efficiency benefits, lowest capital installation costs and lowest operational costs. DDS Provides the highest BOD destruction with the lowest cost per pound of BOD removed.

Enclosing the facility in a building helps to protect the system from ultraviolet rays and allows the use of lower cost PVC components in most cases
Utilizes the building as insulation from the environment and allows the system to operate at highest digestion potential
A stable environment allows the system ecology to remain constant and healthy this provides for the most rapid BOD destruction
This eliminates odors associated with the ecological collapse that occurs in normal sewage treatment operations
The Draconis Digester System is an extremely efficient system for the digestion of sewage influent, sewage sludge or high waste industrial influents. It can handle high FOG feeds effectively using either aerobic or anaerobic digestion
The system is simple in design but extremely efficient in BOD destruction utilizing sophisticated computer control software to provide remote monitoring ability and maintenance notification. The DDS outperforms other systems by providing the digestion of BOD at the lowest operating cost avaialble on the market.
Draconis Digester Systems provides low cost, low maintenance and dependable sewage treatment systems that can be added to existing waste water treatment facilities to lower their BOD discharge to comply with the Clean Water Act. DDS can also be used as a stand alone system for installation as the waste water treatment facility for a community or newly established subdivision.
Provides for the digestion of waste water in a stand alone system that can operate as the waste water treatment facility for a community or Industry. This system passes 80% of the influent through the filter system and retains only about 20% making it extremely cost effective. Lowering capital costs and operating costs
Using micron filtration and membrane filter on all water that is discharged ensures the quality of the effluent
All backflush from the micron filter system and the membrane filter system are sent to the sludge digester to reduce the total BOD. Only about 20% of the total flow of the facility is retained and handled in the sludge digester making it much higher BOD and a much smaller system.
The soluble compounds composed of simple sugars and soluble fatty acids in the waste water influent are easily digested and converted into microbial biomass, then they are easily separated in the clarifier
This configuration creates the most efficient BOD destruction using the smallest system and results in the lowest capital cost in the industry. Passing 80% of the water through the filtration system both guarantees the lowest operating cost and guarantees the discharge water quality
Depending on the Waste Water Treatment Facility's requirements the system can be installed to target the specific areas where the existing system is not performing
When installed in the primary treatment it removes water from the primary tanks and digests the organics and then re-enters the water into the primary or into the secondary as desired by the operator
This most likely would be used for WWT facilities that have high FOG
The DDS could work anaerobically with the FOG to produce energy in the form of methane gas and lower the FOG-BOD load
This installation would be desirable for WWT facilities that need to lower their BOD output or other nutrient outputs such as Nitrogen or Phosphorous
The DDS would work aerobically to maximize the biological growth to tie up the nutrients in microbial biomass
The Draconis Digester System utilized in the tertiary treament would be to trim the BOD of the effluent to meet regulatory requirements
The advantages are that if the WWT facility is not too far out of compliance the system can be relatively small keeping the costs down.
The DDS can be used to expand treatment capability for a growing community
One of the most beneficial uses of the DDS is to remove the sludge disposal issue for a community or industry
DDS used at the activated sludge system will reduce the sludge output by digesting the organic biomass
The sludge can be reduced by 85-90%
The high horsepower blowers providing air to the activated sludge system can be removed.
The sludge is more efficiently digested by the fixed film membrane filter at 40% or less of the cost per pound of BOD removal.
The DDS utilized at the sludge storage tank for a WWT facility that otherwise is operating in compliance with the Clean Water Act will benefit by the elimination of 85-90% of the sludge removal costs.
Sludge is reduced to essentially the inorganic component.The sludge remaining has little to no odor.
If a community has no heavy metal issues then the remaining sludge can be used for landfill or non-agricultural application such as nurseries and golf courses.
