Innovating to Counter the Proliferation of Blue-green Algae: Premier Tech Launches a World First as a Solution to Phosphorus Discharges

RIVIÈRE-DU-LOUP, QC - Premier Tech is  pleased to announce that its Business Unit Premier Tech Aqua has  introduced a world first to the onsite wastewater treatment market: its  Self-Cleaning DpEC unit. It is the very first industrialised phosphorus  removal solution applicable to individual dwellings in wastewater  treatment.

The cumulative discharges of phosphorus into lakes and rivers lead to  the periodical outbreak of blue-green algae that make water undrinkable  and lead to restrictions on the use of these water bodies. Human  activity is largely responsible for those phosphorus discharges which,  in addition to affecting the vitality of water bodies, result in a  depreciation of the value of shoreline properties. Several  municipalities in Canada, USA and around the world are faced with this  problem. The introduction of a system for the removal of phosphorus  coming from residential wastewater discharges thus represents an  excellent solution as well as a convenient development tool.

"Certified according to the requirements of standards CAN/BNQ 3680-600  and NQ 3680-910, the patent-pending Self-Cleaning DpEC unit developed  by our team combines simplicity of operation with optimal performances  in any conditions," explains Roger Lacasse, Vice-President Research &  Development. "The unit is entirely factory-built and ready-to-use for a  quality installation. Based on the electrocoagulation principle, it is  equipped with an efficient and reliable self-cleaning system. The  Self-Cleaning DpEC unit activates only when wastewater enters the  system, which requires less energy and reduces operating costs."

"Premier Tech Aqua has the world's largest Innovation, Research &  Development team for the treatment of small-flow wastewater," said  Henri Ouellet, President. "We are committed to offering municipalities  and home owners sustainable solutions that exceed the most stringent  environmental standards, that can easily be exported and transferred,  and that are supported by a proven integrated maintenance service."

This solution allows municipalities and wastewater treatment  professionals to provide property owners living in sensitive areas with  additional support regarding the standardization of inadequate septic  installations. Decreasing phosphorus discharges ensures a better  protection of sensitive environments such as lakes and rivers, and  helps maintain or increase the value of properties. With this new  system, it is also possible to replace holding tanks that must be  emptied periodically, or to build on land considered non-constructible  until now.
