The wastewater technology company launches system to reduce biosolids waste

MaxWest Environmental Systems Inc. was recognized on stage at the Clinton Global Initiative's (CGI) Seventh Annual Meeting in New York City for its commitment to action: "Landfill Reduction Through Biosolids Processing."

MaxWest's commitment was selected as an exemplary approach to addressing challenges in environment and energy. The company is pleased to announce that it will shortly implement the MaxWest Biogasification System at two new MaxWest facilities in the U.S. and China. This will avoid landfilling approximately 100,000 tons per year of biosolids waste, benefiting more than 376,000 people in the surrounding areas.

Established in 2005 by former President Bill Clinton, CGI convenes global leaders to devise and implement innovative solutions to some of the world's most pressing challenges. Each CGI member creates a concrete plan to address a major global challenge.

The MaxWest commitment includes the expansion of its operations through the construction of two facilities that process biosolids waste using the system, providing a sustainable method for the management of biosolids waste while avoiding landfilling the energy-rich material.

The facilities in Maine and Guangdong Province, China, are expected to be commercially operational in the fourth quarter of 2012, supporting both permanent jobs at the facilities as well as temporary jobs during their construction.

"We are deeply honored to be distinguished by [CGI] for our commitment, which is the practical result of the recognized need for alternative biosolids management solutions in the wastewater treatment industry," MaxWest CEO Ross M. Patten said. "We are eager to build these facilities to tackle the twin challenges of limited biosolids disposal options coupled with rising economic costs for biosolids processing."
