Trinity River Authority of Texas selects the SLG® solution
to optimize its sludge dewatering and related costs
Voisins-le-Bretonneux, 14 June 2018, 8am – Orege announces the sale of an SLG® solution to Trinity River Authority of Texas (TRA) for a total value of around $400,000. This latest success confirms the ramping up of Orege’s commercial development in the US.
Located in Arlington, Texas, TRA is a particularly influential operator in the United States and is pioneering the adoption of new environmentally-responsible innovations and technologies.
TRA has chosen to deploy a first SLG® solution at a wastewater treatment plant covering the equivalent of 1,300,000 inhabitants for sludge conditioning and dewatering upstream of a belt filter press. SLG® will enable TRA to significantly reduce sludge volumes and transport costs, while effectively capturing sludge odors and further improving filtrate quality.
TRA is the first municipality in Texas to choose the SLG® solution. A number of other municipalities across the region face similar financial and environmental challenges and have expressed an interest in developing projects integrating the SLG® solution.
Today, there are over 7,000 belt filter presses in use across North America and they could all benefit from the various operational improvements provided by the SLG® solution.
SLG® (solid, liquid, gas) is an innovative sludge conditioning and treatment technology. It offers a cost-effective and high-performance solution for industrial firms, operators and municipalities by significantly reducing sludge volume and promoting sludge recovery by changing its physical, chemical and rheological characteristics.
Fully aligned with new regulatory and environmental requirements, the patented SLG® technology has received several international awards, including 2016 Breakthrough Technology of the Year at the Global Water Intelligence Awards and Most Innovative Technology at Birmingham Utility Week in 2017.
Orege is an international cleantech firm specialized in the development, manufacturing and marketing of treatment solutions for municipal and industrial sludge and complex effluents. With bases in France, the US and the UK, Orege supports its clients in a dozen countries around the world.
Orege has been listed on the regulated market Euronext – Paris since 5 July 2013
