Focal Technologies – RAY Solar Remediation – UV Treatment
Meet your remediation goals, at a price point you can afford, with little to no effort.
About the Company:
Thousands of dairy and CAFO facilities are regulated for their waste discharge. Coliform and E-coli are contaminating rivers and streams while farms face steep fines and potential shutdown for exceeding coliform limits. Land application of waste is limited and impacts soils. With existing technologies being expensive and complicated no good, affordable solutions existed… Until Now.
About the Solution:
Focal Technologies has developed Ray, a passive system, that works when you need it and can be completely shut down when you don’t. A revolutionary approach focusing solar heat and UV to break down organic contamination in fluids and solids. The ultimate solar solution that utilizes the sun to clean up some of the earth’s largest environmental concerns. By combining heat and the UV spectrum, Ray breaks down organics at the molecular level, with flow rates being adjusted to meet all regulatory requirements. Designed to be an equipment-based approach, Ray is highly movable with minimal in-ground infrastructure. It can be scaled to meet site requirements or grow with process needs. Engineered to survive in the harshest of environments, Ray is durable. The lens has an effective life of a minimum of 10 years. The system is designed to stow in snow or high winds. They can provide annual maintenance contracts and technical expertise to ensure Ray is adequately treating your effluent streams.
Solution Strengths, Weaknesses and Critical Indicators
NOTE: There are multiple technologies that are used as part of integrated manure management systems and yet are not manure management types on their own. The impact of these technologies on their own would be minimal or very difficult to quantify.
General Support & Other:
- Can be an integral part of many manure management systems
- Most projects have at least some equipment that supports operations of the main technology
- This technology is not evaluated on its own, the NEAT Matrix for this technology is neutral unless utilized with other technologies.
Newtrient will continue to work with Focal Technologies to further refine the cost and performance information as more information becomes available and as new commercial dairy installations come on line.
