ZENON to Develop New Wastewater Treatment Plants for Canada's Armed Forces

Jan. 23, 2003

ZENON Environmental Inc. has been chosen to design, develop and manufacture a relocatable wastewater treatment plant (WWTP) for Canada's Department of National Defence (DND). This adds to DND's existing line of mobile water treatment products manufactured by ZENON.

Canada's armed forces are experienced in providing emergency response water treatment and have been doing so with ZENON's ADROWPU and Mini-ROWPU portable water treatment systems. This technology was recently used in Kandahar, Afghanistan where Canada's troops also provided high quality drinking water for other allied forces.

For future applications, the Canadian forces will be ready for the treatment of wastewater in temporary camp locations. ZENON's ZenoGem® system allows the military to maintain a totally environmentally friendly site for wastewater treatment, no matter where they are located.

The ZenoGem uses ZENON's patented ZeeWeed® membranes in combination with a bioreactor to produce a higher quality effluent than conventional wastewater treatment. This allows for safe discharge into any environment, meeting all applicable Canadian, U.K., U.S.A. or other relevant international standards. The treated effluent can also be reused for non-potable purposes if required.

ZENON is active in providing advanced membrane products and services for water purification, wastewater treatment and water reuse to municipalities and industries worldwide.
