Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies receives two prizes at AquaTech China for AnoxKaldnes(TM) MBBR technology and its Carbon Footprint Reduction Program

SHANGHAI, June 6, 2012 - (ACN Newswire) - Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies has won two prestigious awards at Aquatech China, the world's leading trade event for the process, drinking and wastewater technology sectors.

As part of the show's Innovation Contest, the AnoxKaldnes(TM) MBBR biofilm technology was crowned Best Innovation and Veolia's Carbon Footprint Reduction Program emerged as first runner-up at the Best Wastewater Solution Contest.

AnoxKaldnes(TM) MBBR is an efficient and compact wastewater treatment technology that operates as a fixed-film process without activated sludge. In this innovation, specially engineered plastic carriers coated with biofilm are suspended in a reactor. This provides a large surface area for effluent exposure to biofilm, which is coated with different microorganisms that work to trap sewage. One of the greatest benefits that AnoxKaldnes(TM) MBBR brings to end-users is its ability to be easily integrated into existing infrastructure without an increase in footprint. The technology is widely used in industrial and municipal applications for organic matter removal, nitrification, denitrification and phosphorus removal.

To remain at the leading-edge of sustainable offerings, Veolia has put in place a Carbon Footprint Reduction Program which drives innovation, accelerates adoption and development of clean technologies for water treatment. This corporate-wide program has been implemented along with procedures, systems and key performance indicators, which ensure continuous development of innovative technologies designed to meet our municipal and industrial customers' environmental and financial goals. This metric demonstrates value to our customers by justifying an investment in a best-in-class solution, not just because it is reducing the operating costs over the lifetime of the installation but because it is also minimizing the financial risk of a direct and indirect carbon contribution.

As part of the nomination process of the Best Innovation and Best Wastewater Solution contests, an expert panel of judges selected solutions of world-class standards. Professionals in the water industry then voted for innovations that they deemed the most deserving of the awards.

Laurent CUNY, Vice-President, Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies, China Industrial said, "It is indeed an honor to have industry experts and professionals lending their weight to recognize Veolia's innovations and initiatives towards sustainable manufacturing. We look forward to providing the industry with even more cutting edge and environmentally-friendly solutions for water and wastewater treatment in China."
