About Natural Systems
Natural Systems provides innovative technology services to treat, recycle and reuse municipal and industrial wastewater and biosolids. Representing leading edge manufacturers in the field, Natural Systems technologies will:
Unique and Proven Waste Treatment Technologies
Natural Systems represents the following innovative companies, offering unique and complementary waste treatment technologies:
Electrocoagulation (EC) wastewater treatment modules apply an electric charge to treat and clean waste water as it flows over iron slats. Replacing chemical agents in the “coagulation” process of removng waste from water, EC uses electricity to shock the water and separate the toxins and heavy metals to be easily filtered out. Elements such as BOD (bacteria) and phosphorous have been effectively removed by as much as 99%. Some of the companies using EC include Kaiser, Tyson Foods, Swift, Chevron, Toshiba, Samsung, and Intel. Recently Tyson Foods installed a 500 gallon per minute unit in their Midwest facility to treat chicken processing wastewater.
Converting trash to energy, the Pyromex pyrolysis system is a ultra-high temperature unit which “disintegrates” tires, sewage, plastic and trash. This process involves the application of intense, indirect thermal energy in the absence of oxygen which reduces the material to a combustible gas and a non-hazardous inorganic material. The gas can be used directly or power an electric generator.
For more efficient sewage systems, Natural Systems offers NORAM Engineering, which builds and installs wastewater treatment systems one-fourth the size of existing sewage plants, treats sewage at a fraction of the cost to the city and can also produce clean water for irrigation.
The goal of Natural Systems is to bring effective environmental solutions to municipal, commercial, and industrial sectors of the community. We bring the ability to properly treat and recycle municipal, commercial and industrial wastewater, and convert trash, sewage, and other waste streams into fuel and electricity; all the while reducing operating costs up to 90%.

About the President, James Smallwood, M.A.
James Smallwood started a small company 12 years ago distributing fertilizers and water filtration equipment. “At that time I also had an idea of bringing a number of companies together that would provide a range of wastewater treatment equipment and services to a community or large business.” Last year that idea became Natural Systems, Inc.
“Over the past few years I did my research and found several companies who have developed proven new technology that treats a range of wastewater streams without using chemicals, including a company that has developed a way to convert biosolids from municipal wastewater treatment plants, pig farms and dairy’s into natural gas.”
Natural Systems Vision
Natural Systems is committed to addressing and solving the current global water and energy crisis. Diminishing and polluted global water supplies combined with dead and dying coral reefs and marine sanctuaries are evidence of our current global water crisis and hubris. In addition, we label sewage, trash, manure and other used commodities as “waste” for disposal into our oceans and to local landfills, or “approved” for land application and end up throwing away renewable energy resources; resources that can be used as feedstock and converted into clean reusable water, fuel, biodiesel and electricity.
Our current oil “crisis” is in reality the sign of our global energy crisis. We have not only created a preventable energy crisis, but we have also created an unnecessary pollution crisis by sending trash and tires into landfills, and sewage into our oceans, farms, and landfills; these materials represent the total mismanagement and destruction of renewable energy. We are not simply suffering from an “oil shortage”; we are suffering from the disposal and loss of renewable energy sources. This is a mismanagement trend we can, and must reverse! We also think that even “recycling” really amounts to throwing away carbon rich materials that could have been processed to produce fuel and electricity.
Tragically, it is common practice for wastewater treatment plants to dispose of billions of gallons of water daily instead of treating it properly and reusing it, and hauling away sewage that could be converted to electricity for on-site power. This practice is also common among livestock, industrial and commercial businesses, thereby wasting precious water needed for drinking and survival and forever losing potential energy sources; pushing communities and this planet into a global water and energy crisis.
Natural Systems accepts that our current Global Water and Energy Crisis is by far more serious than Global Warming itself. We intend to make available to communities environmentally friendly and sustainable systems to properly treat and reuse wastewater and solid waste and to provide more available clean water and energy for their community, and the planet. It will also be crucial to educate local people and governments to take ownership of and properly maintain new water and energy supply sources.
Natural Systems Perspective:
We acknowledge that the destruction of our air, land and marine environment was caused by our unregulated use of petroleum based energy systems, releases of hazardous and toxic chemicals and toxic sewage sludge from dairy and other waste water discharges into our environment. Local, state and federal governments have failed to properly regulate the dairy and other wastewater industries. Hence, water supplies have been drained, and poorly regulated sewages discharge has destroyed our land, river, and marine environments and created a “negative energy” loop. The consequence of this toxic overload is the global collapse our entire eco-system. Ironically, these waste streams are also sources of water production, recycling and reuse, and carbon-based renewable energy.
