Filanc specializes in the commercial treatment of water. Water treatment is an essential practice that reclaims and reuses water; it is recycling at its height. Filanc has completed award winning water treatment plants throughout the region including the West Basin Water Recycling Facility Phase IV Expansion and the Agua Viva Water Treatment Facility.
Filanc’s primary strength is in the construction of wastewater treatment facilities. Wastewater treatment is the process of removing contaminants from wastewater. It includes physical, chemical, and biological processes to remove physical, chemical and biological contaminants. Its objective is to produce an environmentally-safe fluid waste stream and a solid waste, or treated sludge, suitable for disposal or reuse. Filanc performed construction services for the three-time, award winning Pala Casino, Spa & Resort Wastewater Treatment Plant and Lift Station Rework project.The project consisted of the greenfield design-build of a wastewater treatment plant and upgrades to an existing lift station.
Biosolids & Materials Handling
Biosolids, also referred to as treated sludge, is a term used by the waste water industry to denote the byproduct of domestic and commercial sewage and wastewater treatment. This byproduct can be recycled and used for renewable energy, among other things. Filanc is expanding its knowledge with this service and has completed projects which employ biosolids management. Filanc actively participates in biosolids management. We have successfully completed the Rialto Regional Biosolids Processing Facility and the Encina Water Pollution Control Facility Phase V Expansion, both high-profile, biosolids projects.
Renewable energy is energy which comes from natural resources such as sunlight, wind, rain, tides, and geothermal heat, which are renewable (naturally replenished). Filanc is experienced in this process and leads the way as the industry moves towards greener technology and practices. Today, more projects involve reusing products and creating less waste. One such way Filanc is materializing this idea is with renewable energy.
The Rialto Regional Biosolids Processing Facility is the first plant Filanc completed which uses both biosolids management and renewable energy. The owner, EnerTech Environmental, is a renewable energy company who pioneered a process to convert biosolids into renewable energy. Utilizing their patented SlurryCarb™ process biosolids are converted into fuel to be reused as an alternative source of energy. At full capacity, this facility will produce over 60,000 tons of E-Fuel per year.
