Soneera Water Unity Pilot Program Successfully Started
Soneera Water is pleased to announce that The Town of Unity has now received its’s “Certificate to Operate” from the Saskatchewan Water Safety Authority (WSA).
The Town of Unity’s waste water treatment facility is the only waste water treatment facility fully approved by a Government Authority in North America utilising Soneera Waters electrofluccation technology.
The successful approval for the Town of Unity to operate the two Soneera Memfree systems as a fully functional waste water facility was after an extensive 18 month Pilot Program overseen by the Saskatchewan Water Security Agency (WSA). Soneera commenced the Pilot Program on January 11th 2017.
The Soneera Memfree Waste Water Treatment system is a patented process that will revolutionize waste water treatment in small and mid-size communities.
These two units are the first to be operationalized in North America, although similar units have been used in Australia for some years. Results under extreme winter weather conditions were positive. These two units, now that the Certificate to Operate has been issued by the WSA, will allow the town to grow by 70% from its current population of 3,000. Since the system is modular additional units can be installed as and when required to allow growth up to 6,000+ people.
Soneera Water is pleased that many other communities in Saskatchewan and throughout North America have monitored progress of this pilot. The technology provides a cost effective treatment option for municipal waste, industrial water reclamation and potable water generation. The system utilizes a small footprint and uses no membranes or chemicals in operation. Power consumption (and operating cost) is minimal, typically around 0.05 kWh per cubic meter of water.
Soneera Water has partnered with Tecvalco Ltd for its Canadian sales, manufacturing and service and Tecvalco USA as its USA manufacturer.
