Quebec, on August 14, 2007 - Father Andre Blanchet, acting mayor of the municipality of Saint-Benoit-du-Lac and Mr Guy Goulet, President and CEO of H2O Innovation, proceeded today in the presence of governmental, corporative, economic and environmental participants, to the start-up of an emergency unit for the production of safe drinking water allowing the removal of blue algae.
Entirely developed by H2O Innovation, this system of membrane filtration by nanofiltration makes it possible to produce a drinking water from the water drawn from the Lake Memphrémagog dealing with a problem of blue algae. Indeed, its technology of nanofiltration is a secure physical barrier recognized for the removal of the cyanobacteria. Within the framework of this emergency intervention, the Ministère du Développement durable, de l'Environnement et des Parcs (MDDEP) granted the municipality a certificate of authorization for the installation of an emergency unit until it obtains a permanent filtration installation. This system currently serves the municipality of Saint-Benoit-du-Lac and produces 27,000 gallons per day of drinking water.
Mr Guy Goulet stressed the importance of the realization of this project which appears among the first installation of treatment of blue algae established in municipalities of Quebec. "Strong of numerous municipal installations and of many piloting carried out during the last seven years, H2O Innovation developed an expertise in the surface water treatment and various problems which are attached to it: color, bacteria, viruses, turbidity, organic matter, cyanobacteria, etc", he indicated.
The consulting firm for the project of the municipality of Saint-Benoit-du-Lac, Group SM from Sherbrooke, could count on the immediate availability of the emergency unit of H2O Innovation like on its expertise in the treatment of surface water. Let us recall that the Hermitage Golf Club which draws its water from the Lake Memphrémagog is also owner of a system of nanofiltration conceived and manufactured by H2O Innovation for the production of its drinking water and this, since July 2005.
H2O mission is to develop, manufacture and market innovative, environmentally friendly products, intended for production of drinking water and treatment of wastewater and industrial process water. (www.h2oinnovation.com )
