Shaping the Future
The Carus legacy was forged by innovation. In the early 20th century, our founder Dr. Edward Hegeler Carus was inspired by the growing need for potassium permanganate, and he developed a process to manufacture it.
Innovation continues to drive us today. At Carus, we understand the evolving needs of the world, and we continue to seek out new technologies to advance our purpose.
Our research and development strategy extends from our vision to provide global environmental solutions for a variety of applications. Through our own research and development, and through relationships with industrial partners, academic institutions, and startup think tanks, Carus continues to seek out technology focused on a cleaner environment, process efficiency, and value add solutions.
Water is one of the most important resources in industrial manufacturing operations. Our customers are challenged by increasingly stringent water discharge regulations, with a focus on water recycle and reuse to achieve zero discharge.
Industrial wastewater characteristics are dynamic and require robust technical solutions to accommodate variable water characteristics. Carus has dedicated scientists and application experts to develop customized innovative total solutions to achieve wastewater performance goals for an optimized operating cost.
Carus water technologies are developed based on water and contaminant science, wastewater system knowledge, and industry process expertise. Carus water innovation technology programs are designed to select optimum chemistry through state of the art analysis and lab development to deliver products efficiently to the unit operations, and consistently achieve performance goals in the areas of:
- TSS removal
- Metals & organic management
- Sludge dewatering
- Process optimization through automated monitoring & controlling
- Water recycle & reuse
