Membrane research at new Irish center in US
Irish wastewater treatment company Bord na Mona is to open a US innovation center, which, as well as promoting the company's products, will also undertake number of research initiatives in the areas of tertiary membrane treatment and phosphorus/nitrogen reduction.A particular focus will be on developing new technologies that incorporate recycled or natural materials, reduce the use of chemicals, provide water reuse solutions and reduce energy demand.
The state-of-the-art center will be in Greensboro, North Carolina, the company announced on 17 March 2009 at a reception in Washington, DC, part of an Irish trade mission led by prime minister Brian Cowen. The center will showcase the company's residential wastewater treatment products, including Puraflo®, which is already widely deployed across the US, along with the company's new decentralized wastewater and water reuse technologies, and its odor/VOC abatement systems.
In addition, the center will feature product development efforts that include a residential compact membrane, the PuraMc, and a denitrification system, the Pura-DN.
