Bluewater Bio, Infilco Degremont to Market Wastewater Treatment Technology

Nov. 3, 2011

Both companies are working to create a full-scale demonstration plant

Bluewater Bio Intl., the provider of the high-performance and cost-effective HYBACS wastewater treatment process, is pleased to announce it has entered into an agreement with Infilco Degremont Inc. (SUEZ Environnement) to market technology for energy-efficient nutrient removal across North America.

Under the agreement, which the companies executed several months ago, Infilco Degremont (IDI) will provide the treatment system to municipal and industrial wastewater treatment plants across the continent.  

Following nearly two years of increasingly close collaboration, which has seen the companies enter their agreement, the two companies are working towards the deployment of a full-scale HYBACS demonstration plant in the northeast region of the country where reliable nutrient removal technologies are in particularly high demand driven by stringent regulations.

Bluewater Bio has supplied one of its SMART Units, which drives the treatment process, and IDI has supplied the plant, including aeration tanks and clarifiers, into which the unit is being installed. The plant as a whole has been designed by IDI to be mobile, despite its large size, and the customized unit allows for the flexibility to operate on different flows and loads at other sites in the future. The demo plant is expected to be installed at site by the end of November 2011 and will be one of IDI’s largest.

“IDI has been working very closely with Bluewater Bio for quite some time to bring this project to fruition as we now prepare to launch this technology in the U.S., as part of IDI’s portfolio of wastewater technologies," IDI CEO Tony Hargrave said. "We see great potential and many opportunities for HYBACS in North America.”
