Centrifugally cast, fiberglass-reinforced, polymer mortar Hobas pipe is inherently corrosion resistant and provides a very low life-cycle cost. After more than a quarter-century of service, most U.S. municipalities have used the pipe in new construction and rehab in critical installations. Key applications are sanitary and storm sewers, potable water and corrosive environments. Its benefits include superior hydraulics, light weight, and high strength. Installation methods include open cut, sliplining, jacking, microtunneling, two-pass tunnel, casing carrier and above ground.

BioSpikes™ 4000, available from Novozymes Biologicals, offers a new way to minimize settled sludge volume and reduce solids handling costs in municipal wastewater lagoons. The product contains microorganisms, powerful enzymes, and essential micronutrients and is made via a process that creates a dense spike that rapidly sinks to the bottom of a lagoon, even when applied at the water’s surface. This simplifies dosing and ensures contact between the microorganisms and the sludge layer.
