Baswood BioViper(TM) Wastewater Pretreatment System At The Dr Pepper Snapple Group Houston Bottling Plant (Photo: Business Wire)

The BioViper TM is based on the patented Aerobic/Anaerobic Integrated Media System (AIMS), which maximizes biological treatment efficiency utilizing Baswood’s Dry Cycle Aerobic/Anaerobic Digestion (DCAD) technology. As wastewater passes through distinct treatment zones within the system, sequential treatment results in accelerated digestion of organic wastes, virtually odor free. The BioViper™ achieves treatment goals with a reduced hydraulic retention and increased solids retention, resulting in lower horsepower demands; is internally self-buffering, reducing the need for costly chemicals; and uses Baswood’s proprietary control system, requiring minimal operator oversight.

The Baswood technology was developed and patented by Paul Baskis, a microbiologist and inventor, who studied rivers and saw how bacteria worked in different aeration environments. Based on these studies, Mr. Baskis designed an innovative approach to wastewater treatment that replicated the efficient and effective processes that occur in a natural environment.

Baswood's chairman of the board, actor Edward Norton, is the United Nations Ambassador for Biodiversity, a trustee of Conservation International and member of the TEEB Advisory Council and a long-time advocate for sustainable technologies. Norton has a long-standing interest in efficient, modular wastewater treatment solutions from his work in the developing world and was a founding investor in Baswood in 2004. He has been on the Board since 2007 and became chairman in 2008.

“Baswood’s water treatment technology represents an authentic paradigm shift across the whole spectrum of needs, from industrial pre-treatment to primary municipal treatment to the most demanding tertiary sludge reduction,” said Mr. Norton. “It hits the trifecta of better performance, lower energy use and modular scalability and it offers highly flexible solutions for all scenarios – from rural communities in developing countries all the way up to the largest municipal and industrial water treatment facilities. Dr Pepper Snapple’s installation of the Baswood technology is a great example of how industry can be a leader in promoting cost-effective innovations that improve the bottom line, lower the public cost burden, and protect the sustainability of our most vital resources.”
