KILDARE, IRELAND and NEW YORK, NY - Bord na Mona Environmental Products U.S. Inc., a premier provider of water reuse, wastewater and odor-control treatment technologies, and the U.S. subsidiary of Ireland-based Bord na Mona, a US$500 million energy, resource recovery & environmental technology provider, today announced a partnership agreement with All Tech Environmental (All Tech). The agreement, which was arranged by Wastewater Technologies, Inc. (WTI), provides for the supply of proprietary technologies that will be used to treat wastewater in commercial and residential development markets that require nitrogen and phosphorous removal to high-performance permit levels, water reuse, and high-strength waste applications. Within a short time frame, WTI and All Tech, together with Bord na Mona have established a pipeline of projects valued in excess of US$3 million.
The news was announced today during an economic mission to the U.S. led by Ireland's Prime Minister, Brian Cowen. Commenting on the deal, Prime Minister Cowen noted, 'Bord na Mona is to be commended for pioneering the kind of leading-edge technologies and products that offer practical, highly efficient and greener solutions for the treatment of waste water and air pollution. I wish the company well as they begin their new partnership with All Tech Environmental and WTI.'
Since 1993, Bord na Mona Environmental Products U.S., has expanded its range of high-performance wastewater treatment, water reuse and odor-control solutions to serve a mix of residential customers, developers, municipalities and industries across the U.S. Earlier this year, the company marked a major milestone by installing its 600th biological odor control solution.
'Today's deal with All Tech and WTI brings leading-edge innovative water treatment solutions to customers in the New York and New England area that will provide opportunities for water conservation and reuse, and achievement of the highest environmental treatment standards,' said Shane Keaney, president of Bord na Mona Environmental Products U.S. 'We're delighted to join forces with these two companies -- both leaders in the effort to introduce transformative decentralized wastewater technologies.'
Last year, in a major expansion of its U.S. presence and marking an important pillar of its 'New Contract with Nature' strategy, Bord na Mona Environmental Products U.S. Inc. opened an Innovation Center in North Carolina. The center serves as a showcase for Bord Na Mona's range of wastewater & air pollution treatment products. These include Puraflo®, a peat biofilter which is widely deployed across the U.S. in residential septic applications, PuraM a membrane bioreactor designed specifically for decentralized high performance & water reuse applications, PuraMax an attached growth technology utilizing recycled plastics to provide cost effective solutions for high strength applications and MONASHELL®, a biological odor/VOC control solution that uses a sustainable naturally occurring media that provides high performance at optimum whole life cost. The facility also serves as a research and development hub for new-generation environmental solutions that incorporate recycled or natural materials, reduce the use of chemicals, provide water reuse solutions, and reduce energy demand.
