QUEBEC CITY, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - Sept. 1, 2016) - H2O Innovation Inc. ("H2O Innovation" or the "Corporation") (TSX VENTURE:HEO) (ALTERNEXT:MNEMO:ALHEO) (OTCQX:HEOFF) is proud to announce the release of the new flexMBR™ (flexible membrane bioreactor) technology, for advanced wastewater treatment applications. This new technology provides ground-breaking flexibility within membrane bioreactor (MBR) systems allowing owners and engineers to choose between multiple membrane products for the same system at build time or in the future.
The flexMBR™ is the first membrane bioreactor (MBR) with an open-source wastewater design that can operate MBR modules from different suppliers. It provides flexibility to switch from one membrane to another without having to redesign the treatment plant. The flexMBR™ technology is ideally suited for new systems, but can also be incorporated into an existing wastewater treatment system. By choosing the state-of-the-art flexMBR™ platform over a conventional MBR design, system owners have the flexibility to negotiate the price of their replacement membranes, and to choose a different membrane model for replacement. With this open-source approach, replacement of modules becomes a competitive process and is open to new module designs that will be developed in the future. This allows owners to take advantage of the latest technology and pricing options offered by membrane vendors.
"We continue to innovate with the same vision: offering a better price and superior performance to all of our customers, today and for many more years to come. Our customers quickly adopted the FiberFlex™ platform when we launched it, three years ago; we are anticipating a similar reaction to the breakthrough flexMBR™ technology", stated Frédéric Dugré, President and Chief Operating Officer of H2O Innovation.
This technology will be presented for the first time at the 31st Annual WateReuse Symposium, in Tampa, Florida, from September 11th to September 14th with an official release on September 24th, 2016 at the 89e Annual Water Environment Federation Technical Exhibition & Conference (WEFTEC), in New-Orleans, Louisiana.
