Azura was instrumental in helping resolve a nagging sewer bylaw compliance issue. We’re a food processor and having Dave in our corner when it came to understanding BOD, TSS, and FOG, combined with their data-driven approach to pH control, really helped us in our dealings with the municipality. Azura understands that a true comprehensive solution to a technical problem also includes clear guidance on complying with regulatory authorities.”

“Thorough analysis, technical expertise and an experienced execution. Dave provided a high degree of personalized and professional engineering insight to a nagging sewer compliance issue. Dave also assisted our attorney with the technical aspects of defending compliance charges. He is amazingly responsive at all times and helped provide a calming presence in what was a very stressful time for me. I wouldn’t hesitate to refer Dave’s expertise to anyone.”

“Our fleet of plants produce very challenging wastewater for our biological activated sludge system to treat. Starting almost 20 years ago, Dave has supported our wastewater treatment operations, whenever we have needed him, across several sites. Process design and optimization, troubleshooting, technology evaluations, detailed testing and operator training—I’ve come to rely on Dave’s advice and guidance in many fronts. Trusted for his real-world experience, the practical advice really sets him apart.

“A dead digester, not producing any gas, that’s what got us to start working with Azura. Starting with detailed laboratory testing, Dave’s processes pinpointed the problem and got our digester back to 80% production in only two months. Azura’s ongoing monitoring had us hit full production a few weeks after that. Once we were stable they developed a feedstock recipe to maintain stable production. We have high methane content, and no foam. Since then, even with engine issues, we’ve averaged more than 90% production. Their emphasis on better testing for better decisions really pays off.

“Every year I rely on Azura to help me with our biological wastewater treatment system. We produce industrial wastewater with unique constituents and so our treatment system is also very special. Dave’s been advising us on advanced activated sludge treatment for more than 20 years. It’s great to have a real subject matter expert to call on. Whether it’s for advice on how to handle seasonal temperature issues, nitrification challenges, or figuring out how new technology can help us, I really appreciate Azura’s detailed approach to their work.”

– Ryan W., Environmental Manager, Chemical Manufacturing Facility

“When we engaged Azura we were having to curtail production due to wastewater issues and were looking at significant capital costs to improve discharge compliance. Dave and his team were able to come in quickly and really understand our processes and issues. Using their data-based approach Azura suggested alternate wastewater compliance approaches that we had not thought of. Ultimately, Azura developed a process-savvy solution that we were able to implement at almost no capital cost. I really enjoy knowing that I can pick up the phone at anytime and call Dave to discuss an issue, and he will always be there to help. Dave takes pride in his professional approach to solving issues at the plant. We have continued to use his services beyond the scope of the first project.”

– Greg Z., Process Engineer, Chemical Manufacturing Facility

“Good digesters run on good data. Dave and Azura helped us get better data on our two digesters so we could make better decisions. Regular testing of our digesters helped us manage our feedstocks, balance their nutrition, and avoid ammonia and LCFA toxicity problems. Good biology, balanced nutrition, and stable operation have helped us avoid serious foaming problems. He helped us improve our biology. Easy to contact by phone or text or email, Dave and Azura really made a difference.
