De Nora Water Technologies is a leading provider of water and wastewater treatment technologies and contract operating services. Our company brings together numerous proven, established and market leading technologies and brands specifically designed for the treatment of municipal and industrial water and wastewater.

Electrocoagulation Technology Electrocoagulation Technology

Electrocoagulation is an electro-chemical process that simultaneously removes heavy metals, suspended solids, emulsified organics and many other contaminants from water using electricity instead of expensive chemical reagents. The process uses electricity and sacrificial plates to combine with contaminants in a waste stream, producing insoluble oxides and hydroxides - floc - that are easily separated from the clear water.

    Something In The Water? A Journey To High Performance

    Every week, as General Manager for People and Culture at Yarra Valley Water in Melbourne, Australia, I’m asked for advice about how we transformed the culture of our publicly-owned water corporation. The requests come from near and far — peer utilities, businesses in other sectors, and government agencies. They’d like the recipe for what we’ve accomplished — the steps from A-Z. But it’s not as simple as that. It’s been a true journey with twists and turns that weren’t always pretty, and we gave life to it as we grew. In this article I’d like to share insights that might make this kind of transformation accessible to other organizations.
