Richard at AquaTech Amsterdam

BioChem leader

BioChem Water’s team of experts is led by founder and General Manager Richard Brown. When you work with BioChem Water you can sure your business is in safe hands – Richard has worked in the water treatment industry for over 25 years and spent stints honing his skills at Memtec and Ecolab before setting up BioChem Water.

For Richard, a typical day involves visiting clients and conducting service work as well as responding to enquiries, talking to clients and report writing. As a large part of BioChem Water’s business involves wastewater, troubleshooting is common particularly with biological plants. Richard also tries to invest some time each day in growth and innovation: “I’m always looking to deliver more for our clients and explore how we can better serve our clients with innovation – through faster and better communication (we’ve just launched a client portal for instant client access to current and historical reports) and through the development and production of specialised chemicals.” BioChem Water works with clients large and small in a range of industries including food manufacturing and mining. The team consulted at MasterFoods Australia where they have installed a dissolved flotation plant and a screw press. They’re also performing a dewatering project of the anaerobic pond.

Best Outcomes

Richard is passionate about serving his clients and being his own boss means that he can focus BioChem Water’s priorities on delivering the best outcomes for clients. He also likes to see his team members and clients grow and develop as they deliver projects and find new solutions. “If I wasn’t in water treatment, I’d be a chef or horticulturist…” When he’s not at work, Richard has lots of interests to keep him busy. He enjoys good food and wine, building aircraft models, flying his drone and getting away for the weekend. He also loves watching sport and owns a share in two race horses.
