Dessau Responds to Water Meter Controversy

Posted on May 13, 2009
In response to the hubbub over contracts a consortium that includes Dessau obtained in Montreal, Jean-Pierre Sauriol, president of Dessau, wrote an open letter. Sauriol says, “Some have gone so far as to plant the idea that we have links to organized crime, as one of our affiliates rented an office with no prior knowledge (a fact that must be stressed) that the building was owned by a member of the mafia. These insinuations, as others that have been concocted lately, bear heavy consequences and bring unjust prejudices to our company.” He stresses that, like any other contract awarded in the public sector, the contracts were [...]

GLV Acquires Dewatering Technology

Posted on April 14, 2009
GLV Inc. has acquired the municipal and industrial wastewater sludge treatment technology developed by Elcotech Technologies, a young company based in Boucherville, Quebec. Conventional mechanical dewatering technologies can only extract the free water (i.e., the water not adsorbed by biosolids), with the result that the water content of the residual material remains high, at 65-85 per cent. Certain thermal processes yield better dewatering rates through water evaporation, but these processes are costly in terms of capital and energy. Elcotech's technology uses electro-osmosis to separate water molecules from biosolids, thereby reducing [...]

The federal government will contribute up to $350 million in infrastructure stimulus funding for projects identified under this simple and innovative program.

Posted on March 18, 2009
Day One passed with much talk of the economy and how it's affecting environmental businesses. Not surprisingly, most of the non-technical sessions had a money focus. One delegate asked a panel on the cleantech landscape how to turn investor attitudes from "Hm. This is so cheap right now" to "Wow! This is so cheap right now!" The good news is that our staff is hearing from all attendees that business for those providing environmental services is booming. One consultant says his company is even opening another office to handle the volume of business. XPV Capital's [...]
