The Company manufactures and sells commercial water treatment systems that can be applied to a variety of Water and Wastewater Applications. The following is a partial listing of typical applications: Swimming Pools, Commercial laundry, Aquaculture, Cooling Towers, Drinking Water (residential & commercial), Water Bottling, Food Disinfection, Municipal and Industrial Wastewater treatment systems, Industrial Food Processing.
The Company also manufactures and sells commercial systems for the control and elimination of odours, fungus, mould, bacteria and other contaminants in the air. The typical Air Applications include: Treatment of food storage areas, Paint fumes, Garbage rooms, Animal shelters, Meat coolers, Florist Coolers, Hotel Rooms, Smoking Rooms, Cars, Fire Damaged Areas.
The Company also distributes on an exclusive Canadian basis a revolutionary and patented dewatering technology from Japan that has been successfully established in the North American market. The AMCON Volute Dewatering Screw Press offers a low maintenance, cost saving solution for wastewater dewatering.
The dewatered bio-solids that are produced by the Volute or other dewatering products are managed and converted into beneficial uses through an affiliated company called Bio Balance. Bio Balance has developed technologically advanced organic fertilizer and soil enrichment products from bio-mass waste streams through the application of proprietary, advanced water treatment and bio-solids conversion technologies. These unique solutions provide customers with an economic and environmentally friendly way of completing the cycle and turning waste into useful products without degrading our environment.
Simpson Environmental provides wastewater treatment equipment for large scale or specialized projects in the industrial and municipal sectors working with industry partners. It distributes products through direct sales and a network of dealers and distributors for specific product sectors. The Company exports its products to the USA, Europe, UK, China, India, Singapore, Hong Kong, Africa, the Caribbean and the Middle East.
Simpson Environmental Corporation is dedicated to the treatment and purification of air, water and soil using innovative technologies to help complete the cycle of returning them to their original purity using methods that deliver real value to its customers. The Company is committed to maintaining standards of customer service that will consistently place it at the top of its industry.
Ozone Advanced Oxidation
Simpson Environmental Corporation was one of the first to file a Canadian Patent for Ozone Generators to be used in water treatment. It currently has a U.S. Patent approved and a Canadian Patent filed on the core technology used in its various water treatment systems.
Simpson has developed its own proprietary ozone generators that are superior to all known competitors on a price versus performance basis (U.S. Patent #6,833,121). Ozone is used as an environmentally friendly disinfectant and oxidant to treat water or wastewater. The technology involves the use of ozone alone or in combination with other technology to provide advanced oxidation reactions along with appropriate filtration to achieve improved water quality.
The Company uses a patented, screw-press dewatering device manufactured in part in Japan and in part in Canada. The U.S. Patent 5,380,436 covers this technology. The Volute is a revolutionary new way to dewater solids that has received widespread acceptance in Japan and is now being installed in locations around the world. North American installations include food processing plants and municipal water treatment facilities.
Organic Waste Conversion
Bio Balance, a Simpson affiliated company, uses an accelerated process for aerobically composting organic waste material into a fully bio-stabilized state within 30 days. A high efficiency, multi-channel, indoor composter converts the organic waste on a continuous flow basis. The critical factors for success include the real-time monitoring of the moisture, heat, oxygen flow throughout the composting material as well as the recipe itself to ensure optimal conditions for pathogen destruction, nutrient retention and its bonding to the organic matter as the compost achieves bio-stability. This phase also is a source of thermal energy and marketable carbon credits.
Bio Balance moves the bio-stabilized compost to its finishing operations where it is graded, mechanically screened, treated to customer specifications in terms of nutrient balance, particle size and shape using a blending process. The material is then compressed into pellets in a crumble or granular form. The product is bagged and stacked for shipping. NOTRA has granted exclusive use of its patents in Canada and the United States to Bio Balance. The U.S. patent number is US 6,645,267 B1, 11 November 2003. The Canadian patent number is 2,375,983, dated 08 January 2007.
Bio Balance also uses a unique NOTRA designed and validated process for finishing fully bio-stabilized organic compost into growing media for horticultural uses. The material is mechanically screened, mixed with suitable humified organic matter and bulking agents. The plant growing media can then be used for field crops or houseplants. The U.S. patent number is US 6,645,267 B1, 11 November 2003.
The superior performance of Notra Pure Organic Fertilizer and Growing Media was successfully validated in Agriculture Canada's greenhouse facility. A complete set of validation reports and data are available on request.
What We Do
Bio Balance produces and markets high-performance, value-priced and environmentally-friendly organic fertilizer products. The prime destinations are home gardens commercial and public green-space. Also, organic growers of specialty food crops can achieve excellent yield and taste results using Bio Balance pure organic product while continuing to restore or enrich their soil for future planting cycles.
The Company builds and operates accelerated, aerobic composting facilities for clients in the food processing industry and for municipalities. The output of these operations feed our fertilizer finishing operations where the nutrient-rich, fully bio-stabilized compost arrives to be processed, bagged and readied to transform gardens, parks, fairways, sports fields and farmers' fields into healthier environments for plant life they support.
Organic waste streams otherwise destined for landfill sites or the conventional practice of direct land spreading, are converted safely into nutrient-rich fertilizer that feeds plants in balance with their growth needs.
Raw manure, black earth and composts, while often good for soil structure, have little nutrient value. Chemical fertilizers generally contain excessive amounts of nutrients that quickly release to the plants whenever the soil is moist but provide no direct benefit to the soil. Both these organic and inorganic sources of nutrients can result in over-priming of the soil and be washed away, a loss to the plants’ needs and a source of pollution to those plants, animals and people downstream.
How We Do It
Bio Balance has a proven 'green' solution for waste generators determined to divert their organic waste streams from the ever rising costs and environmental impact of sewer release or landfill or facing restrictions to direct land application. Our proprietary and patented processes extract the maximum nutrient value from the organic residue then seal in its potency so plants benefit throughout their growth curve while the problematic waste stream is virtually eliminated. Bio Balance locks-in the beneficial nutrients with its carefully managed approach that delivers the important Bio-stability factor!
The Importance of Bio-stability
Organic fertilizers that are biologically and chemically stable:
- Bind the nutrients to the organic matter in the fertilizer to greatly lessen harmful release to the atmosphere as greenhouse gases or leaching into the water-table as pollutants
- Balance the nutrient needs of the plants over their full growth cycle by slowly releasing nutrients on-demand by the plant
- Have no noxious odors during production, in the bag, on application or whenever the soil is wet
- Store better retaining their nutrient value provided the conditions that activate its beneficial organisms-heat and moisture, are minimized
- Have a positive carry-over affect to the next growing season in terms of soil fertility and soil microbial life
- Permit ‘one treatment, anytime’ during the growing season saving time, effort and money
- Require less watering and in the case of lawns, cutting, by improving root growth while avoiding over-stimulation of top growth. Plants become more drought resistant
