Expanding the toolbox of the water management professional while lowering the chemical footprint and mitigation expenses.

With recurring harmful algae blooms quickly becoming one of the environmentalists’ greatest concerns, a think-outside-the-box approach is necessary to eliminate the widespread and often complete reliance on chemical mitigation techniques in algae control. These traditional applications, revolving around the introduction of copper sulfate (a poison) into the water supply, can severely damage the entire water biome if applied incorrectly and repeatedly. They also contribute to the recycling process of phosphates and nitrates, the very thing that facilitates these blooms in the first place. With each chemical application, the subsequent bloom becomes larger until the issue is nearly untenable. These blooms cause irreversible damage and greatly contribute to our deteriorating environment as well as drastic downturns in the economies of those communities affected by them.

Hydro BioScience, LLC, have been leaders and pioneers in the exciting and novel application of ultrasound for algae and biofilm/biofouling control. For several years they have been assisting water management professionals choosing an effective and environmentally friendly approach to toxic algae bloom mitigation and prevention with their ultrasonic algae control systems.

In a recent application, HBS technology facilitated the end of a 44-year reliance on copper sulfate for an upstate New York watershed, saving the management company and community, hundreds of thousands of dollars in chemical and manpower expenses while investing a mere $6500 in this technology. Quite the return of investment.

At the heart of the HBS line are the well-known Quattro-DB® and Mezzo-DB™ algae remediation systems based on proven, safe and EPA registered ultrasonic technology. These transducers, working in harmony with the surrounding environment, introduce a multitude of low amplitude, ultrasonic frequencies into the water that disable the ability of algae to engage in the life-necessary process of photosynthesis.

HBS has now announced significant advancements and additions to their 2022 line of products including those to their world-wide patented algae remediation systems. These systems currently have thousands of applications across the planet and empower the world with chemical free, environmentally friendly, and effective algae management applications, now at significantly reduced costs while expanding the scope and effectiveness of HBS technology.
