Ottawa cleantech firm wins pair of wastewater deals worth $2M
Cleantech firm BluMetric Environmental installing wastewater treatment facilities in Ontario, Kentucky
OTTAWA—Ottawa-based cleantech firm BluMetric Environmental Inc. has won a pair of contracts worth a combined $2 million for wastewater treatment installations in Ontario and Kentucky.
According to BlueMetric, its water division was awarded a contract to supply an on-site wastewater treatment system for a new housing development near the Greater Toronto Area (GTA).
The system includes the company’s ROTORDISK rotating biological contactors (RBC) technology with denitrification and phosphorus removal capability.
The second contract will see the company supply specialized wastewater treatment equipment for an undisclosed major multinational firm in Carrollton, Ky.
The company said the Kentucky plant requires “a unique blend of materials and specialty coatings to withstand the service burden of a challenging industrial waste stream.”
It did not provide an installation timeline for either project.
“These contracts reflect the range of potential for BluMetric’s water treatment technologies, as well as the strength of our growing sales representative network,” Dan Scroggins, president of BluMetric’s water division, said in a release.
“We can see an expanding market in the Canadian real estate development sector, and with the U.S. economy improving, their industrial and municipal markets are beginning to open up (too).”
Earlier this month, the cleantech company announced it had won a $2.5-million environmental engineering services deal with Vale Canada Ltd. for groundwater monitoring at three of its sites in Ontario.
