Biological Sewer Treatment Saves $500,000 a Year, Company Claims
With six new projects in cities across the United States and Mexico in the first quarter of 2010, In-Pipe Technology is providing a natural biological process that can be used in existing infrastructure. The technology is well suited to optimizing current facilities.
“In-Pipe has effectively increased its install base in North America by 100 percent over the last nine months,” said John Williams, president and chief executive officer.
In-Pipe offers a service that targets no net cost for municipal customers. These projects save customers more than $500,000 per year in cumulative net cost savings for operational and maintenance expenses. New customers include a global leader in water and wastewater contract operations, Forcis S.A. de C.V. (under contract to Monterrey, NL), Farmington, Conn., and Jackson, Miss.
The patented technology includes regularly adding a high concentration formulation of facultative, naturally occurring, non-pathogenic bacteria to strategic locations throughout the sewer system in accordance with an engineered plan. This requires zero capital cost and no additional energy. Performance in the collection system provides increased additional capacity within the plant, forestalls upgrades, and extends the life of existing infrastructure.
