KKR and XPV Water Partners Form New Platform to Promote Water Quality



MicroC® 2000 Series

The MicroC® 2000 series is a proprietary glycerin-based and non-hazardous product series. MicroC® 2000 series products are the most cost-effective non-hazardous carbon source on the market. It is widely used in denitrification, Enhanced Biological Phosphorus Removal (EBPR) and BOD addition applications.


  • Eliminates flammability and toxicity concerns of traditional chemicals such as methanol
  • Provides capital cost savings vs. installation of flammable liquid storage and feed system
  • Non-hazardous product enables rapid and flexible deployment of carbon augmentation solutions 

Performance Advantages

  • Rapid start-up/acclimation
  • Superior cold weather performance

Environmentally Sustainable

  • Derived from abundant, renewable resources produced in the United States vs. largely imported fossil-fuel derived carbon sources (methanol)
  • USDA BioPreferred designation

Consistent and Superior Quality

  • Rigorous end to end quality control program
  • Consistent Chemical Oxygen Demand (COD) values
  • No product degradation during long-term storage
Validated Performance

MicroC 2000

Introduced in 2009, MicroC 2000 is a non-hazardous glycerin based carbon source that supports both denitrification and biological phosphorus removal with superior kinetics. This carbon source has a very high COD value (1,100,000 mg COD/L) and is the lowest cost, non-hazardous product on a $/lb COD basis available in the market. This product is used by medium to large municipal facilities
