Bluewater Bio awarded Phosphorus removal contract by Yorkshire Water

Bluewater Bio Limited, a leading provider of innovative high-performance, cost-effective water and wastewater treatment technologies, is pleased to announce that  Yorkshire Water Services Ltd (“Yorkshire Water”) has selected the Company’s high rate filter technology, FilterClear, for their full-scale P removal trials at Bolsover sewage treatment/wastewater treatment works, Derbyshire. The site serves a population equivalent of 10,000, with FilterClear being utilised for 100 per cent of the flow. The contract, scheduled for delivery on 6th November, is part of a wider initiative with participants across the ten major Water and Sewerage Companies, managed by UK Water Industry Research Ltd (“UKWIR”). The trial is scheduled to last for a 12 month period, due to be completed in December 2016.

As part of the National Chemical Investigation Programme (CIP) the feasibility and cost implications in achieving a Total Phosphorus level of 0.1 mg/L will be evaluated, with the outcome of the trials aiding in determining the strategy the respective water companies’ implement when addressing P removal in the future.

Fergus Rooksby, Commercial Director of Bluewater Bio, commented: “We are delighted to work with Yorkshire Water on what is a very important area of interest for the industry a whole. With increasingly stringent discharge coming into place for P removal across the UK and Europe, economically viable and sustainable approaches need to be examined and evaluated.

“FilterClear’s exceptional final effluent quality coupled with its small footprint, off-site manufacturing approach and short lead times make it an ideal option for a chemical dosing approach to low phosphate concentration consents.”
