WORCESTER, Mass., Nov. 1, 2011 /PR Newswire/ -- ThermoEnergy Corporation (OTCBB: TMEN), an industry leader in wastewater recovery and emissions-free combustion technologies, announced today that it has signed a contract to supply a CAST® flash distillation system that will be part of a new wastewater recovery system at a municipal treatment plant in the western region of the U.S. The CAST® system will be used in combination with a leading ion exchange resin system to recover reject water in the regeneration process. Wastewater will be recovered from a concentration salts, organics, suspended solids and fine colloidal material. The CAST® distillate will be returned to the plant for reuse as cooling tower/sealer flush water. The system will have the capacity to treat 3,000 gallons of wastewater per day.
ThermoEnergy's proprietary CAST® flash vacuum distillation is a physical-chemical process that uses temperature and reduced pressure to separate chemicals, metals and nutrients from wastewater.
'This is the first time where these two technologies have been deployed together to create a high-efficiency municipal wastewater recovery system,' said Cary Bullock. 'We expect the success of this project to result in multiple new opportunities at other municipal plants across the country.'
Founded in 1988, ThermoEnergy is a diversified technologies company engaged in the worldwide development, sales and commercialization of patented and/or proprietary municipal, industrial, and agricultural wastewater treatment and recovery, as well as clean power generation technologies.
