On June 7th, we were invited to Brighton, UK, along with 20 other companies, to present our technology at the British Water Innovation Exchange. This marks the 31st event of this kind hosted by the British Water association and their fifth time collaborating with Southern Water, a utility that provides water and wastewater treatment services in the South East of England.
The event is held in a “Dragons Den” style format, designed to provide instant feedback as to whether the technology being presented is of interest to Southern Water in the immediate future. Technologies are scored using a traffic light-based system. This year, 50% of the technologies presented received a green light to proceed with their full product offering into Southern Water.
We were thrilled to receive a green light for the Salsnes Filter system, our rotating belt filter technology for primary wastewater treatment. Our presentation received very positive feedback and many additional questions from the panel. We discussed the modular design, small footprint, automation and proven performance of the Salsnes Filter system, and how we can help meet the needs of wastewater treatment plants and also contribute to a circular economy.
