Amplio Uses Basin Water to Form Envirogen Technologies
The Amplio Group of London has formed Envirogen Technologies, Inc., a technology+services solutions provider with existing business in municipal and industrial water and environmental treatment applications.
The company has been formed from the assets of Basin Water, Inc. that were recently purchased by Amplio. The new Envirogen Technologies, Inc. will offer a broad but targeted range of technologies, supported by operating service options for a number of environmental treatment applications, including potable water treatment, groundwater remediation, process water treatment, wastewater treatment, odor control and more. One of the distinguishing characteristics of the company' is its business model, which focuses on "lifecycle performance" – providing guaranteed, pay-for-performance, long-term contracts at predictable costs, offering customers the lowest total cost over the lifetime of an equipment installation.
Headquartered in Kingwood, Texas, the company will operate regional offices in Southern California, Illinois, New Jersey and Tennessee.
According to Michael M. Stark, president and chief executive officer, environmental and process engineering projects have in the past focused heavily on the "design and build" phase and not enough on the long-term operating requirements and costs. "If careful consideration isn't given to operations and maintenance up front, long-term costs will be too high. When you look at projects from a 'lifecycle performance' perspective, you have the ability to balance initial design and build costs with the operating costs and to develop predictability, which provides both reliability in performance and optimization of the investment," he said.
The new company's technology portfolio includes high-efficiency ion exchange and the use of various absorptive media that are adaptable to different types of organic and inorganic contaminants and process requirements.
