Green Infrastructure

IDCS has long been a green designer.  Historically, the best designs were inherently green from an efficiency and economic standpoint.  IDCS’ core areas of Water and Wastewater Treatment are inherently green in design from the start.  We have developed biogas treatment facilities, and used the gas to generate heat and electricity, also generators using turbine and reciprocating engines.  Solar powered photovoltaic installations have been designed for grid connection in both rural and urban environments.
