Kirk D. Bradley, Founder, Chairman and CEO
Prior to founding New Earth Systems™, Kirk had spent his career in waste treatment management, engineering fabrication, and running full-scale research and development organizations.It’s a great story of hard work and perseverance paying off. Kirk received his industry start when, in his 20’s, he operated the Springville, Utah wastewater treatment plant. This he did with enthusiasm to pay for his college education. Demonstrating skills in both leadership and innovation, Kirk quickly, earned his degree and worked his way through the organization to become the Department Head with duties including the management of a major plant expansion.

Through the last twenty-five years, Kirk has served as a Regional Wastewater Manager, consulted for industry, municipalities, engineering firms, and for the Federal Government (NASA/JPL) on issues relating to water remediation and rocket science. He is a recognized authority on wastestream remediation.

After seeing first hand the limitations of conventional treatment technologies, Kirk founded New Earth Systems in 1997. His vision: to revolutionize the environmental industry with new and innovative products. That dream gave birth to the CentrO3fier™; one of the world’s most technologically advanced water remediation tools. Kirk maintains this vision and is driven to ensure that New Earth Systems is an innovation leader with the skill sets necessary to both create practical solutions and commercialize innovations.

Kirk’s systems engineering projects have typically addressed hazardous material extractions from a wide variety of waste streams. Such engagements characteristically include the direction of project management, technology development, system design, product fabrication, and team operational activities on multimillion dollar projects.

Kirk received his Bachelor of Science from Brigham Young University, and degrees/licenses related to manufacturing, environmental sciences, wastewater treatment, engineering and general construction services. His licenses in the wastewater field constitute the highest level of professional certifications required for treatment system operations in the United States.
