Biorem awarded C$720 000 biofiltration project
Canada’s Biorem Inc is to supply a two-stage air emissions control system to remove the odorous compounds from the air at a municipal wastewater treatment facility in southern British Columbia.
The C$720 000 system, which includes a biotrickling filter followed by a biofilter with Biorem’s permanent XLD media, is expected to treat approximately 9000 cubic meters of complex contaminated air sources per hour. The system is expected to be fully operational in the second quarter of 2010.
“Odour and emissions control is increasingly becoming a key consideration for municipal and industrial companies, as air quality at the boundary of the site becomes progressively more regulated by legislators,” said Biorem president and CEO Peter Bruijns. “We are pleased by this contract win and are excited by the opportunity to increase our footprint in western Canada.”
