Trojan Technologies Announces Acquisition of OpenCEL

Oct. 27, 2011

OpenCEL will operate as a division of Trojan Technologies' US Peroxide business

The Trojan Technologies group of businesses acquired the business assets of OpenCEL of Glencoe, Ill. OpenCEL is an environmental biotechnology company, which offers a proprietary technology and significantly improves processing of wastewater biosolids.

Utilized for pretreating wastewater sludge prior to anaerobic digestion, the technology employs high-frequency electrical pulses to break open biomass cell membranes, releasing soluble material that is more readily digested and converted to energy, reducing the amount of biosolids produced and disposed. The OpenCEL business will operate as a division of US Peroxide, a Trojan Technologies business headquartered in Atlanta.

“This is a high-technology business that will continue to support US Peroxide’s goal of helping to optimize customer operations,” US Peroxide General Manager Tom Walkosak said. “The OpenCEL technology reduces the cost of handling biosolids while also increasing methane production that can be used beneficially within the plant or to generate electricity on site; this makes facilities more self sustainable.”

US Peroxide is a provider of peroxygen-based technologies and performance-driven, full-service environmental treatment programs to help purify water, wastewater, soil and air. It specializes in turn-key solutions for municipal wastewater and drinking water treatment.

This acquisition allows the Trojan Technologies group of businesses to continue to create and build on a foundation of offering sustainable, effective solutions that ensure greater water confidence and environmental stewardship for industry and global municipalities.
