“I couldn’t be more excited about the future of Heartland Technology” says Earl Jones. “For the past eight years, the Company has developed, optimized and commercialized a truly differentiated solution for treating challenging waste waters such as landfill leachate, power plant scrubber water and oilfield produced water, among many others. The ability to deliver zero liquid discharge solutions in a single unit operation that is safe, simple, rugged, reliable and cost effective is exactly what the industry needs and has been looking for.”

The Heartland Concentrator™ is a direct contact evaporator that eliminates the fouling and scaling problems associated with other brine concentration solutions while using low-cost materials of construction. The proprietary and patented process requires little to no pre-treatment and can concentrate brine to a solid without the need of a back-end crystallizer. “The development program that led to the Heartland Concentrator began with a blank sheet of paper. The goal was to design the most universal process for aqueous wastewater treatment while setting new standards for combined performance, reliability, economy, mobility and environmental impact” says Bernie Duesel.

“Industrial waste waters are notoriously difficult to treat.” says Nick Dyner. “It’s not enough for a solution to work in a controlled piloting environment –it must be rugged, simple, and work in harsh, real-world conditions. What convinced me about the technology was not the Company’s claims but hearing our customers describe how simple and reliable the solution is and, most importantly, how much money we are saving them. We often describe our solution as having been ‘Built by Operators for Operators’ and after listening to our customers, I get it.”

“A company is only as good as its team, and the Heartland team is fantastic.” says Earl Jones “Joining such a great team, having the confidence and support from our board and investors, and having such amazing leaders as Nick, Shubha and Susan joining us on the journey is both an honor and quite humbling.”
