Contern, 21 July 2011 – Epuramat, specialist for energy-efficient water and wastewater treatment systems, today announced that it has sold his patented ExSep® system in the UK, to Wilton based Anaerobic Energy Ltd. (“AEL”). This application will provide the complete water treatment solution for AEL’s new anaerobic digestion plant, opening in North East England still this year, and will also be used as a mobile demonstration plant to prospective new customers across the UK and Europe.
Speaking on this new contract, its first in the UK, Epuramat’s CEO Bogdan Serban, commented: “We are delighted to have extended our presence into the UK with this new contract. We see exceptional growth opportunities for us in the sector of renewable energy, and are excited to be working with Anaerobic Energy Ltd. in this biogas project as the mobile demonstration plant will spread the awareness of our ExSep® technology to a broad audience.”
Dr. Faisal Salam, Technical Director of AEL, said: “Our purchase decision is based on the extremely good results of the ExSep® application, which we felt was able to offer us superior performance to conventional systems in the dewatering of digestate. This was important to us as we wanted our plant to be technically advanced, using pioneering technologies to maximize the amount of renewable energy we could produce.”
Epuramat will provide AEL, the zero-waste anaerobic digestion plant developer, with a mobile, containerized solution for digestate dewatering and purification of the resulting water within the process of biogas production, using minimal energy and chemicals. The system will be delivered in autumn, and given its mobile nature, can be used in a demonstration plant for potential customers, helping to market the product for possible roll out in the UK and Europe.
This contract follows Epuramat’s announcement in June of a multi-million dollar distribution agreement over several years with Black Opal Energy Services, to distribute its Box4Water wastewater treatment solution across Canada.
Founded in 2005 in Luxembourg, Epuramat S.A. is a specialist and pioneer in innovative water and wastewater treatment solutions. Its patented ExSep® (Extreme-Separator) pre-treatment solution uses fluid dynamics, with no moving parts, to separate solid matter from liquid, enabling wastewater to be more easily and more efficiently processed or recycled. Epuramat systems can be used in a variety of municipal and industrial applications, including treating wastewater from remote communities for direct discharge into open surface water; separating oil from water; treating industrial water for re-use; and treating digestate wastewater resulting from biogas production. The Epuramat plants are currently in operation in Europe, the US and Canada.
