Envirogen and Suez Environnement Create Collaborative Alliance to Deliver Comprehensive, Cost-Effective Water & Wastewater Solutions to the Power Industry

May 2015
The offering will combine biological & physical-chemical technologies with process design, engineering and implementation expertise to meet emerging regulatory challenges

Kingwood, TX — Envirogen Technologies, Inc. announced that it has entered into a Collaborative Alliance with Suez Environnement and will work with the environmental technology leader to deliver comprehensive, cost-effective water and wastewater treatment solutions to the power industry in North America. Effective immediately, the two companies will collaborate exclusively to pursue and execute major environmental projects for electrical power generation facilities, with each company contributing proven, proprietary technology and extensive experience in developing high-performing, low lifecycle cost solutions.  The Alliance will combine Suez Environnement’s capabilities in physical/chemical treatment technologies with Envirogen’s expertise in biological treatment, but can extend to include the breadth of the technology portfolios of both companies. Near term project targets for the Alliance include groundwater and landfill leachate treatment related to coal combustion residuals (CCRs), and flue-gas desulfurization (FGD) wastewater treatment. Both of these areas will be governed by new US Federal regulations coming online in the next 48 months.

According to Richard Reese, President & CEO of Envirogen, it is the breadth and depth of Suez Environnement’s technology as well as the company’s strong presence in the power industry that makes it an ideal collaborator for Envirogen in this Alliance. “Meeting the new regulations for the power industry will require complex, comprehensive solutions with a high level of process-specific expertise and the ability to integrate and deliver systems flawlessly. Suez Environnement is a global leader in water and wastewater equipment solutions with exceptional experience in major projects. Working together, we believe we can deliver end-to-end solutions,” he said. “This Collaborative Alliance will offer a unique opportunity for the power industry. When power companies work with us, they will be working directly with world-class experts in the systems and technologies that are critical to their projects. At the same time, the teams we put together will have hands-on experience in the process design, engineering, installation and operation of these systems. We will provide a new type of resource to the power industry, where we can not only deliver guarantees for performance and asset life of these installations, but where we can do so at lower capital and lifecycle costs than anyone else in the industry,” he added.

The U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) is revising the Clean Water Act’s Effluent Limitation Guidelines (ELG) for the steam electric power industry that will change how many power plants manage and treat wastewater in the United States. New regulations that cover flue gas desulfurization wastewater are expected to be implemented for more than 200 U.S coal-burning power plant facilities. It is expected that contaminants such as mercury, arsenic and selenium will be regulated to low levels at these facilities. At the same time, new regulations are being implemented on coal combustion residuals (CCRs), commonly known as Coal Ash, that are disposed of at large surface impoundments and landfills. These residuals contain contaminants like selenium, mercury, cadmium and arsenic. In both cases, treatment will require a range of processes that include both physical/chemical and biological technologies.

Best-in-Class Biological Technology + In-Field Experience Key to Offering

Recent work in the mining industry and significant pilot tests in the power industry have shown that biological treatment is often the highest performing, most reliable and least cost solution in treating selenium, nitrate and other oxyanions that are at the heart of some of the new power industry regulations. Envirogen has a long track record in biological treatment, with numerous installations of its Fluidized Bed Reactor (FBR) technology in North America. This track record includes compelling performance and economic advantages in commercial installations and pilot work in treating selenium at coal mines.  The ability to reliably remove selenium, other metals and nitrate to very low levels will be critical to helping the power industry meet their regulatory goals as the new FGD and CCR regulations come online.

According to Reese, one of the keys to deploying biological treatment to achieving selenium, nitrate and metals reduction targets in the power industry is integration with a range of pre- and post- treatment processes seamlessly and in a synergistic fashion. “The waste streams that are present in the power industry are incredibly complex and differ from site to site. It’s important that the best technology, tailored in multi-component solutions is brought to bear to meet treatment requirements cost effectively,” he said. “Suez Environnement has an incredibly broad technology portfolio and experience base in the power industry and can help realize the potential of biological technology in these applications. We’re excited to be working with Suez Environnement in this endeavor,” he added.

Derwent Water launches the EcoPure Range of intelligent short cycle, high purity deioniser systems

Derwent Water are pleased to announce the launch of their new state of the art counter current, short cycle, deionisation system offering reliable, economical and energy efficient operation.

Producing up to 10MOhm (EcoPure C model) deionised water the system can be used in a range of markets and applications including surface finishing, cosmetics, pharmaceutical, boiler feed and other general purified water applications.

The Eco-pure employs an intelligent monitoring system which continually evaluates the incoming feed water and if required, adjusts its internal capacity to respond to any fluctuations in quality. This ensures that it optimises the production of high purity demineralised water, thus reducing unnecessary regenerations, chemical usage and effluent production.

The EcoPure includes a fully integrated control system with a user friendly touch screen colour HMI with full graphical display. As well as intelligent monitoring of the incoming feed water the EcoPure is also programmed to carry out the following process checks:

  • Chemical draw verification: If the correct acid or caustic draw rate is not achieved the regeneration will be halted and an alarm generated to prevent incorrect regeneration and out of specification pH effluent generation.
  • Pump pressure sensor to prevent over pressurisation of the system.

The EcoPure also has a single bed regeneration option which can be supervisor initiated to facilitate commissioning and breakdown situations.

The EcoPure is also able to data log the incoming and outgoing process data which can be readily exported to an external monitoring system. This gives an undisputable record of prior system performance and allows identification of any spikes or unwanted fluctuations in system operational conditions which are often difficult to identify and resolve.

The EcoPure’s improved energy efficiency helps reduce its running costs by up to 30% due to the use of a variable frequency drive motor which also reduces systems operating pressure, and is quieter in its operation.
Advantages from the EcoPure:

  • Up to 30% savings in overall energy costs
  • Produces up to 10MOhm water (EcoPure C model)
  • Skid mounted, easy to install unit
  • Fully integrated control system, with customisable HMI display and access levels
  • Data trending facility maximising performance
  • External control of water storage tanks (feed, regen and treated). No additional control systems are required.

David Hayes, Sales Director says “Following indepth research of customer and market needs, we have consequently, developed, tested and bought to market a state of the art counter current deioniser, that will meet not only water quality and budgetary requirements for the end user. It’s an exciting and innovative development and we have already received a number of enquiries for it”
