BlueInGreen to Receive Water Quality Award

Innovative Technology Award from WEF to be presented at WEFTEC

BlueInGreen LLC will receive the Innovative Technology Award from the Water Environment Federation (WEF). The award will be presented during a ceremony at WEFTEC.10.

The Innovative Technology Awards, which includes the collection systems, instrumentation, process equipment and solids handling and disposal categories, are presented annually to WEF associate members who have introduced new innovative products or services related to the construction, operation or maintenance of treatment facilities.

BlueInGreen is being recognized in the process equipment category for its SDOX system, a high-efficiency dissolved oxygen delivery technology. BlueInGreen's SDOX system aims to maximize the delivery of dissolved oxygen and minimize the footprint of the oxygen delivery system. SDOX systems are being used in applications where operating efficiency and space considerations are paramount, according to the company.

The SDOX operates in a manner different from traditional dissolved oxygen delivery methods, according to the company. The oxygen gas is pre-dissolved into a stream of water inside a pressurized saturation tank to achieve supersaturated concentrations. The oxygenated water is then released from the saturation tank and mixed with the larger body of water being treated. Applications include municipal and industrial water and wastewater, as well as ecological restoration and bioremediation.
