MELBOURNE, Australia & NEW YORK--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fluence Corporation Limited (ASX:FLC) announced today that it has received a contract to deliver a water treatment reuse system to its customer Rosenblad Design Group (Rosenblad). Fluence’s zero liquid discharge (ZLD) solution will utilize ultrafiltration and reverse osmosis equipment to treat brine for reuse. The system will be integrated and utilized as part of a larger turnkey water treatment project Rosenblad is installing in California. California is one of the largest water and wastewater treatment markets for Fluence.
This will be Fluence’s first ZLD system in the continental United States and is particularly significant for its location in California, where the local government has recently renewed the drought declaration and is once again implementing restrictions on water consumption. This water reuse system has benefits to the end user beyond the obvious environmental ones, which include the reduction of costly waste management and the increase in product recovery, capturing maximum utility from its resources. The market for water reuse in the US is expected to grow over the next couple of decades due to policy change, population growth and climate related challenges in water scarce regions1.
Fluence’s Managing Director and CEO, Henry Charrabé said: “Our team is working closely with Rosenblad to support this project. Rosenblad is well known for its extensive experience as a leading provider of high quality evaporation technologies. Combined with Fluence’s water process expertise, we trust this will be the first of many future joint projects between Fluence and Rosenblad.”
Rosenblad President, Fredrik Thelander, added: “This project win is due to a very close collaborative effort between Rosenblad and Fluence. We selected Fluence as our partner due to their strong process knowledge within the water space. We look forward to working closely with Fluence, where we can utilize their expertise and technology, together with ours, in order to deliver a highly efficient zero liquid discharge system to meet the most stringent environmental regulatory requirements in California with an optimized operating cost solution for the end user.”
The Fluence system is expected to be delivered, installed and operational onsite by the end of 2018.
