Applied Microbiology (for Water Treatment, Pollution Control, and Waste Management)

The Department of Applied Microbiology offers consulting services for the government, industry, academic institutions, and microbiology specialists.

We focus on water treatment and disinfection, pollution control, and waste management.

The Avalon Institute can assess problems from on-site and laboratory analytical work and develop applicable treatment strategies.

We can:

  • Analyze the microbiological composition of activated sludge for biologic nutrient removal (BNR) wastewater treatment plants.
  • Assess the microbiological composition of well water.
  • Assess the microbiological composition of surface water.
