More about the company.

2017 brings EBS to our 20th year anniversary. Starting simply as a wastewater consultant to industrial manufacturing plants and water treatment companies, EBS has grown to include a client support and troubleshooting staff capable of working with your plant’s personnel on issues and performing a variety of wastewater system studies; laboratories to assess your system dynamics, run treatability studies, and perform wastewater treatment (WWT) related research; a staff capable of training clients in WWT at EBS seminars, workshops, customized on-site courses, and for the 10-hour OSHA General Industry Safety and Health training course; and a variety of wastewater treatment products including bacteria, nutrients, defoamers, and polymers.

Since 1997, EBS has provided a unique blend of technical expertise and customer focused services to an ever-growing list of industrial clients. The EBS client list includes Fortune 500 corporations and small manufacturing facilities alike, including the four largest North American pulp and paper companies and two of the three largest water treatment chemical suppliers. We service pulp and paper mills, food processing plants, petroleum refineries, and chemical processing facilities throughout the United States, Canada, and South America.

Principal Consultant Mike Foster has over twenty-eight years of experience with industrial wastewater systems. As an author of a book on biological wastewater systems and numerous articles and technical papers, Mike is widely sought after as a speaker and trainer for conferences, workshops, and short courses throughout the country. EBS is proud to be a family business. President Christine Foster also has over twenty-five years of technical support and marketing experience in the pulp and paper industry.

EBS believes in doing business with those who share our fundamental beliefs and core values. We appreciate the importance of protecting North America’s receiving streams and waterways. We are inspired to approach industrial biological wastewater treatment differently, more holistically, and we never underestimate the impact of wastewater on the receiving stream. EBS is responsive to the needs of our clients and we recognize that we must continually strive to earn their business and loyalty.
