•    Award-Winning: We are proud to announce that we won ‘Best AD/Biogas Support’ category at the 2020 AD & Biogas Industry Awards’, hosted by ADBA, (The Anaerobic Digestion and Bioresources Association), for our work in supporting Glenmorangie distillery in Tain, Scotland. 

•    People-centered: Existing team on-site? We can retain, develop and train existing site staff, utilising their local knowledge and experience and ensuring a smooth transition for both people and operations. We TUPE staff across if necessary and we treat all employees as part of Alpheus, wherever they are located. Field staff are always considered an integral part of our team.

Unlike other providers, we have access to a much wider network of skilled people, knowledge and experience.



We have extensive experience in operating across a wide range of sites – from simple reedbed systems to the most complex membrane bioreactor plants and anaerobic systems. 

Our water and wastewater treatment, processing and management services include:   

•    Anaerobic Digestion (AD): This involves the treatment of industrial by-products and wastewater to generate on-site power or enriched bio-gas, (excess can also be sold to the grid). AD also produces biosolids or ‘sludge’ which can be sold to seed new anaerobic systems or used as agricultural soil conditioner. Through innovation and expert design, on-site AD plants have become straight-forward to operate and maintain - and they’re no longer costly to operate.

•    Aerobic treatment systems: These produce high-quality secondary effluent from industrial wastewater or sewage. Aerobic treatment of wastewater is a biological process that uses oxygen to break down organic contaminants and other pollutants like nitrogen and phosphorous. Aerobic treatment is usually used to polish industrial wastewater pre-treated by anaerobic processes. This ensures the wastewater is fully degraded and can be safely discharged in accordance with strict environmental regulations. 

Aerobic treatment processes are suitable for a range of industries such as Food and Beverage, Chemical, and Municipal. We offer several different technologies for the aerobic treatment of wastewater and sewage: Submerged Aerated Filters (SAF), Sequencing Batch Reactors (SBR), conventional Activated Sludge (AS), Membrane Bioreactors Moving Bed Biofilm Reactors (MBBRs), and Trickling Filters (TF).
