AgTech Webinar: Affordable, High-Performance Nitrate Removal


Tailwater Systems’ founder and CEO, Dr. John Skardon, will be joining Western Growers Center for Innovation & Technology (WGCIT) Director Dennis Donohue during tomorrow’s Innovating in Challenging Times webinar. Skardon will discuss how the company’s flagship product, an anaerobic nitrate removal bioreactor, is capable of removing 95% – 99% of nitrates within 90 minutes! 

Tailwater’s systems are the lowest cost solution for removing nitrate from any type of water. By using biology to convert nitrate into nitrogen gas and carbon dioxide, the process produces no costly waste by-product.

As previously reported in Spotlight, the WGCIT has launched the “Innovating in Challenging Times” webinar series to demonstrate how technological development continues to advance during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. The series, which is moderated by WGCIT Director Dennis Donohue, features entrepreneurs from different agtech startups who share how the crisis has impacted their company as well as the creative methods they are implementing to move business forward.
