Organisation Type: SME
AQUATEST a.s. (AQT) is a SME type of organisation with a size of about 200 employees. Its major activity is consultancy and remediation of polluted groundwater, surface water, wastewater, soil and aquifer materials; recycling and waste management, water management. The company is equipped by a fully accredited environmental laboratory, drilling equipment, well logging. Besides consultancy, AQT has an extensive technical department oriented on development of equipment for polluted water treatment, pilot and full/scale technological units, mobile treatment stations. The research capacity of AQT concentrates to development and testing of new remedial methods, detection methods and innovative wastewater treatment methods. Within the international and national research projects AQT cooperates with universities, research centres and environmental consultancy companies from Czech, Europe and USA. The R&D team has a long term experiences with application of zero-valent iron nanoparticles in remediation of contaminated groundwater including 14 pilot applications and 2 full scale remediations. The most of R&D projects is managed by the division of R&D, which has 8 members, but in most of the projects members of other divisions participate as well. Some division members have over 20 year experiences in the field of physical chemical processes including 17 years in remediation business and 8 years in nanotechnology. The projects related with new remediation methods for groundwater, surface water and waste water cleaning. Three of the projects are based on application of zero-valent Fe nanoparticles, which are study and tested from 2004. Pilot applications and technical provisions are realized by the Technical division with extensive experiences in this field. Experimental facility includes full support for pilot and full/scale tests, leading to unique experiences on European level.
