Bluewater Bio International, a leading provider of innovative high-performance, cost-effective water and wastewater treatment technologies, is pleased to announce that Anglian Water PLC (“Anglian”), under its Tertiary Solids Removal Framework, has awarded three contracts for FilterClear, BwB’s innovative high performance multimedia filtration technology. The three projects are located at Brington and Bugbrooke Water Recycling Centres (“WRC”), in Northamptonshire, and Alford WRC in Lincolnshire.

In total, the three FilterClear systems will be treating up to 7,000 cubic meters per day, at an aggregate contract value of just under £0.6 million. BwB will supply its advanced multimedia filters as pre-engineered and tested package plants, thereby reducing the duration, cost and risks of site work.

The high performance FilterClear systems deliver many benefits when compared with competing technologies, especially in terms of high filtrate quality, compact footprint and reduced energy requirements – thereby establishing FilterClear as a cost competitive solution.

Adrian Harris, recently appointed CEO of Bluewater Bio, commented: “We are delighted to work with Anglian Water and their delivery partners in the @one Alliance on this framework. FilterClear is an established and well-proven technology within Scotland and we are pleased that Anglian Water has recognised its particular benefits for these wastewater polishing applications.”

“Tertiary solids removal is becoming important for many sites across the UK and Europe and increasingly stringent consents for phosphorus often necessitate very high levels of solids removal, something that FilterClear achieves readily with low operating costs.”

Prior to the framework contract and subsequent orders, a FilterClear demonstration plant was operated for four months at Cambridge WRC. Operational and water quality data were collected to demonstrate the effectiveness of the technology. The performance exceeded the client’s expectations and FilterClear has been considered as a potential alternative to conventional sand filters or even membrane filters where stringent solids performance is required.
