Water Management Solutions for Unconventional Gas

Good for the Industry & Good for the Environment

Global Commitment to the Energy Industry.

30 Years And Counting

Based in Pennsylvania, we are strategically located within the Marcellus Shale region. This enables us to leverage local and immediate knowledge of shale gas applications as it pertains to water, that gas companies can benefit from. With our broad portfolio of technologies and extensive experience, we can ensure the effective treatment of flowback and produced water.


In micro-electronics industry ultra-pure water (UPW) is integral to the various manufacturing processes. UPW is essential to properly fabricate today’s integrated circuits, and is the primary solvent used to remove contaminants that decrease the yield of usable circuits. Aquatech’s integrated systems & solutions has played a critical role in providing UPW that meets the specific demand at the same time reducing wastewater produced & energy required to drive various unit operations.

Food & Beverage

Food and Beverage Product and Process waters require treatment of even the best water supply to guarantee the quality and purity of the final product … and with the added task of assuring a long shelf life.

Plant wastewaters must consistently meet all regulatory requirements even when faced with highly variable loadings and flows.


50 years of Technology Leadership

Today more than ever, sea water is becoming a viable source of water supply around the world. Aquatech is ideally positioned to answer this demand.

Our history in desalination is almost as impressive as our technical capabilities. In the late 1950's we developed and patented Multistage Flash (MSF) technology, installing the first large MSF plants in the middle East in the early 1960's. We patented the Multiple Effect Distillation (MED) process and built plants in the Middle and Far East in the 1970's. Membrane technology development followed in the 1980's. All of this history has made us a company with first class references in MSF, MED, and SWRO on virtually every continent.

Wastewater Reuse

Aquatech is actively engaged in wastewater treatment, recycle & reuse of Industrial as well as Municipal waste water. We are progressively making steps for completely integrated Waste water treatment and recycle / reuse systems under one umbrella. Systems consists of primary treatment for raw waste water, secondary treatment using aerobic and anaerobic processes having advanced technologies followed by Tertiary treatment consisting of Media filtration, Ion exchange & HEROTM processes.
