The Company We Keep

We have exciting news. Recently, we joined forces with Somerset Coal International, a company that offers unique technology in the field of fine coal recovery. See how its Sub325™ fine coal recovery system is creating a whole new revenue stream for mining companies. Visit

SES is continuously looking to apply this wonderful technology in other industries. We have seen results for the removal of phosphorus and nitrogen ammonia in our lab. We believe the Maelstrom Oxidizer® can be applied successfully in the wastewater treatment industry and in fish hatcheries for oxygen deficient waters.
