AMS Installs SafeGuard™ H2O Cr(VI) Remediation Full-Scale Pilot in California

AMS installed a full-scale pilot of its SafeGuard™ H2O intelligent Cr(VI) remediation system in a Central Valley California Community. SafeGuard™ H2O is an innovative technology based on a proprietary approach that generates on demand a stannous ion reagent in-situ via an electrolytic process. The goal of the pilot is to demonstrate the system’s ability to effectively and affordably treat water with elevated Cr(VI) levels to non-detect levels (less than 2 ppb) by converting toxic Cr(VI) to insoluble nontoxic Cr (III), which then can be removed by filtration along with tin dioxide — the product of the conversion. The stannous generator system features automatic dosing and incorporates continuous, real-time monitoring of Cr(VI) levels at the influent and effluent to ensure optimal treatment and compliance with regulatory and operational targets 24/7/365. Through the onboard online analyzer the technology’s ability to effectively reduce Cr(VI) was seen immediately.

AMS Talks: The Environmental Impact of Abandoned Mines

In this episode of AMS Talks, Rick Bacon, CEO of AMS, and Marcie Demmy Bidwell, Executive Director for the Mountain Studies Institute in Colorado, discuss the environmental impact of abandoned mines and efforts to protect water quality. Colorado has roughly 23,000 abandoned mines. Because of the financial scale of this challenge and the existential threat posed by these mines to human health and the environment, Bacon and Bidwell discuss the importance of bringing together the voice of governments, mining companies, and technology solution providers to share ideas and work together toward a solution to this pressing issue.

Bringing Innovative and Affordable Solutions to a Costly and Complex Problem

AMS is committed to bringing intelligent water remediation solutions that can be fully controlled, monitored and optimized remotely, while ensuring that these systems are more accessible to a wider sector of the population through affordable financial models. As such, AMS has offered an official response to a white paper — “Economic Feasibility Analysis in Consideration of a Hexavalent Chromium MCL” — published by the California State Water Board (SWB), who is engaged in a process of consultation to determine at what level the regulatory limit for Cr(VI) should be set. AMS’ position on Cr(VI) regulation and comments to SWB are summarized in this technical brief.

AMS Brings a Proven and Affordable Hexavalent Chromium Treatment Solution to California’s Food Processing Industry

The state of California has a long history managing Cr(VI) in its drinking water and has been working to reestablish a standard by reevaluating the health information, as well as technologies that can provide effective treatment at lower costs. To address the lack of an effective and economically viable treatment solution for big cities, small communities, and industries, AMS has developed a low-cost Cr(VI) remediation system that removes this carcinogen to non-detectable levels at a fraction of the cost of traditional treatment systems.

A ‘Canary in the Mine’: Advocating for Real-Time Monitoring Solutions to Detect Lead in Drinking Water

Lead contamination in drinking water presents a serious threat to human health. While utilities monitor for lead by sampling infrequently only a small number of domestic points of use, these traditional lead monitoring programs lack the ability to measure the presence of all forms of lead; capture unpredictable changes in water quality that result in lead corrosion; and report the contamination risk before the water is delivered to the customer. MetalGuard™ Lead Alert!™ from AMS is designed to offer communities real-time, continuous and dynamic water quality assessment of the presence of total lead in buildings or zones exposed to events that are the cause of acute lead contamination to reduce the risk of exposure.
