Ozone is the New Solution for Wastewater Treatment, Aclarus Leads the Way.

Aclarus installed the first injected-ozone disinfection system in Canada at the Town of Cobourg. The ultimate goal was to eliminate the use of chlorine and sulphur dioxide from the treatment process, preventing over 500 kg of chemicals from discharge into Lake Ontatrio.

More importantly, the system provided complete disinfection, removal of contaminants of concern like drugs and hormones and left only clean, oxygen rich water.

The objective is always to provide an environmentally friendly disinfection system that can be purchased and operated at less cost than traditional disinfection methods.

  • Turn septic and process water into clean water instantly, naturally & at the highest flow rates

  • Costs less than traditional treatment options with low maintenance and upkeep.

  • Compact, easy retrofit without large infrastructure investments required.

  • Low power, advanced monitoring and control systems, fully automatic.

  • Only pure water produced, safe for discharge or recycling as greywater

  • Proven by McGill study to remove emerging contaminants, lower toxicity

Our McGill study showing our unique ability to remove emerging contaminants of concern.


There is a growing concern about contaminants of emerging concern (CECs) found in the environment, including pharmaceuticals, personal care products and illicit drugs, which are often not easily removed using conventional treatment technologies. Aclarus is proposing a solution!
