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 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 [...]
