RF Wastewater / Nuvoda Partners with Smith & Loveless Inc. for the Water Industry’s First Green Biofilm Technology Agreement to optimize sludge treatment and clarifier performance for public / private treatment plants
RALEIGH (N.C.) – RF Wastewater / Nuvoda and Smith & Loveless Inc. announce a partnership to deliver innovative biofilm technologies to dramatically optimize activated sludge treatment and clarifier performance for Water Resource Recovery Facilities (WRRFs) and other public / private treatment plant systems. This alliance combines RF Wastewater / Nuvoda’s bioaugmentation expertise and mobile biofilm carrier development with Smith & Loveless’ strong legacy of treatment process innovation and engineered system design. Under the agreement, Smith & Loveless gains the ability to commercially develop and integrate RF Wastewater / Nuvoda’s patented lignocellulosic biofilm technology for high rate biofilm treatment for nutrient removal, granular biomass and enhanced clarifier settling. These new eco-friendly processes bring all-natural green solutions to clean water treatment.
“We are very pleased to align with Smith & Loveless to advance ground-breaking treatment solutions like Mobile Organic Biofilm™,” said Worth Harris CEO of RF Wastewater / Nuvoda. “Smith & Loveless’ long-standing reputation for system innovation matches well with RF Wastewater / Nuvoda’s commitment to research and development of next-generation biofilm technology.”
Jason Calhoun, P.E., RF Wastewater / Nuvoda Vice President of Business Development and Technology added: “The combined synergies of Smith & Loveless and RF Wastewater / Nuvoda creates a whole new exciting level for the emerging biofilm market and customers requiring advanced solutions to meet today’s clean water treatment challenges.”
“Smith & Loveless is excited to collaborate with RF Wastewater / Nuvoda to bring to the water industry one of the most significant breakthroughs in biofilm treatment and sustainability,” said Frank J. Rebori, president of Smith & Loveless. “This Green+Green™ technology utilizes a patented renewable biofilm resource to replace chemical and petrochemical-based approaches for clean water treatment, continuing Smith & Loveless’ commitment to develop leading-edge and sustainable treatment solutions.”
With this announcement, RF Wastewater / Nuvoda and Smith & Loveless introduce new process solutions for biofilm treatment and clarifier optimization featuring RF Wastewater / Nuvoda’s patented mobile biofilm media and Mobile Organic Biofilm™ processes. These patented processes enable new and existing WRRF’s to dramatically improve organic and hydraulic treatment capacity, nutrient removal and clarifier settling without the use of polymers, petroleum-based carriers or expensive, inorganic ballasted additives. Because it utilizes an all-natural green carrier, the Mobile Organic Biofilm™ process eliminates the need for non-renewable petroleum-based carriers and other additives.
RF Wastewater / Nuvoda and Smith & Loveless will be available at WEFTEC.17, Oct. 1-3, Chicago, Ill., at S&L booth #2017, to discuss the alliance and the new biofilm process solutions being introduced.
