HLC Wastewater – About Us

HLC Wastewater Technology are water technology industry professionals with over thirty five

years of experience providing water and wastewater treatment solutions around the world. We have

built and managed companies in the USA, the United Kingdom, Europe, China, Korea, and Southeast


We have sold and developed many projects in these regions, ultrapure water systems, power station water systems, wastewater treatment systems for many different industries, and municipal wastewater systems. We know what customers need. We know that many available wastewater treatment technologies are severely challenged when dealing with today’s existential pollution problems. We have worked in our laboratories, on customer sites, using small scale and large scale systems, working with real industrial wastes to develop a new technology which is a game changer.

We have made a fundamental discovery, a previously unknown free radical that can be generated in aqueous solution. Once generated the free radical, a super-radical, initiates and carries a sustained chain reaction which consumes all pollutants to low concentrations. The technology is product ready to provide a treatment which will destroy:

• all dissolved organic compounds

• all PFAS to low ppt concentrations

• nutrients such as phosphates and ammonia

• perchlorates
and last but not least

• carbon dioxide dissolved in water - a solution to climate change!

Technology – the solution to pollution

The super radical is very difficult to isolate and cannot be directly observed BUT the chain reactions it causes to happen can. In some aqueous solutions as the chain reaction progresses their physical appearance changes which enables the detection of the reaction and observation of its progression. If the chain reaction is initiated in a solution containing sodium sulfide the sulfide ions present are oxidized to sulfur which comes out of solution. The appearance of the water changes from green and clear to white and milky, an obvious change. We have done this in our laboratory system described in this schematic:

This is what we observed:

About Us

We have sold and developed many projects in these regions ranging from ultrapure water systems,

power station water systems, wastewater treatment systems for many different industries, and municipal water and wastewater systems. We understand the requirements of customers and engineers in industry and municipalities. We are very aware that existing wastewater treatment technologies are severely challenged. Biological treatment systems, which form the basis of the majority of wastewater treatment systems, have difficulty in managing many industrial organic wastes and are easily poisoned and upset. They have great difficulty removing pollutants such as PFAS and active pharmaceutical ingredients. Very strong, high TDS wastes are a challenge. For too long the most utilized means of dealing with difficult pollutants has been dilution or moving the industries that produce the waste to regions with less demanding regulations. There is a pressing need for a more reliable and capable means of destroying hazardous organic pollutants and other pollutants, such as ammonia and phosphates. We started in the mid-2000s to survey treatment processes which were being developed and installed when working with our customers in China and Asia as they attempted to minimize pollutant discharge to the environment. There have been developments in bio-treatment processes which have improved performance but not enough.

The sustained reaction took over five minutes to complete and gave the result;

Sulfide: 3334 ppm to <250 ppm

The observed chain reaction confirms the existence of the super radical. The reaction was initiated in the electrochemical cell, remote from the tank, and carried in a small volume of water for >5 seconds before it entered the tank. Extraordinary!

In a second test we took a larger volume, 20 liters, of the sodium sulfide solution and added 47g of

phenol. We observed the same sulfide result AND.

Phenol: 2150 ppm to <150 ppm

In a third test we took 8 liters of the sulfide solution and added 7 g of acetic acid, 40 microgram of PFOA, and 32 microgram of PFOS. The same reaction occurred, sulfide was removed AND

Acetic Acid: 900 ppm to 300 ppm

PFOA: 5 ppb to <<10 ppt

PFOS: 4 ppb to <<10ppt

We delayed the termination of the reaction and destroyed the PFAS with minimal byproducts produced.

Total PFAS reduced by over 98%

In a fourth test we took 8 liters of the sodium sulfide solution and added 50g of sodium carbonate to it.

The same reaction occurred, the sulfide was oxidized to sulfur AND concurrently

Carbon Dioxide/Bicarbonate: >3500 ppm to <2100 ppm

The chain reaction will remove carbon dioxide dissolved in an aqueous solution – easily!

Reaction termination can be managed to give a final carbon dioxide concentration <150 ppm – easily!

The process, which we call the FRiCR , does all of this at low capital and low operating cost.

It is truly astonishing!

We have created a Google Slides presentation illustrating the FRiCR process.
