Who is Dryden Aqua?


Dryden Aqua is a Scottish based marine biological company established in 1980 specializing in water quality and innovative treatment technology. Our unique knowledge combination and detailed understanding of the biological as well as the physio-chemical reactions has enabled Dryden Aqua to develop a highly innovative range of product systems. Dryden Aqua are marine biologists specializing in aquatic environmental treatment, control and monitoring systems. We have developed new water treatment strategies that are effective in both lakes and the marine environments, and we manufacture the key products. The control of water quality in lakes, rivers and the marine environment is essential for the sustainability of the ecosystem, it also makes good economic sense. Destratification of reservoirs improves water quality, increases species diversity, productivity and makes it much easier to filter the water for potable applications. Dryden Aqua manufacture diffusers for this function and dissolved oxygen probes to monitor the process.

Our Mission

The mission and focus of Dryden Aqua is to try and make the world a better place. We are an environmental company specializing in water and aquatic ecosystems. We are aware of the impact of toxic chemicals (priority substances) have on public health in drinking water and on the environment in wastewater. We have developed sustainable technology to remove some priority substances and are expanding this research to further enhance performance. This may actually be a solution to support marine biodiversity which will help the marine ecosystem remove carbon dioxide and reduce the impact on climate change. We are also aware of the health implications of disinfection by products on children from chlorinated municipal supplies and swimming pools and the biological risk from parasites such as cryptosporidium. We are providing practical low cost solutions in Europe as well as India and Africa that are saving lives. However we have not forgotten our roots and as Marine Biologists we provide life support systems for fish in public aquaria. If we loose the marine ecosystem the terrestrial ecosystem will collapse and civilization will be over. If the terrestrial ecosystem collapses the seas and the marine ecosystem will actually improve.
