AUSTIN, Texas, April 30, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — GAST Clearwater has developed a disruptive technology and methodology to replace secondary treatment and disinfection steps without the use of chemicals or biological elements of wastewater and sewer treatment facilities.

The technology has been dubbed the “Tesla” of water treatment, destined to disrupt the water treatment industry just as electric vehicles have done to the automotive industry. Ironically, Tesla did not develop a new battery for its cars, but simply improved the efficiency and effectiveness of its battery systems, namely lithium iron phosphate (LFP). GAST Clearwater holds a similar history with its technology developing two (2) new systems colloquially referred to as:

The Black Box (WMM – Microorganism & Mineral Removal Machine)

The blue box (CWD – Clearwater Device)

Indeed, the nut that always alludes to was cracked to find a way to “wash” the water without using chemicals and biological treatments. Technology is obviously not a new way to build a “car”, in this analogy a car is a water treatment solution, but technology allows GAST Clearwater to deliver cleaner water in a more sustainable way and more profitable.

The technology in its current form is set to revolutionize wastewater treatment, sewage treatment, commercial water treatment solutions, cooling towers, ship ballast water management and many other industries in the world. world.

This technology not only has the ability to develop new sewage treatment and wastewater treatment facilities, but is also offered as a “bolt-on” system to existing facilities or even facilities that wish to reduce costs by eliminating their chemical and biological cost components, regardless of their size.

Deloitte recently released a report titled Waterproof 3.0, diving deep into the global water sector. The report was conducted by David Spire (Deloitte US Government & Public Services Water Practice Leader) & Kishore Rao (Principal and Lead Client Service Partner for international development organizations).

It was stated in Deloitte’s Water Tight 3.0 report that The objective of this report is to highlight, for both public and private stakeholders, the issues that Deloitte’s global water practice considers most important for the water sector. Issues as complex as these are of course interconnected with each other and with other resource issues and should not be considered in isolation. Furthermore, the challenges of the sector have been further exacerbated with the current global pandemic of COVID-19.

Interestingly enough, Deloitte found in its Water Tight 3.0 report, many concerns across sectors, including:

  • The era of cheap water is over.
  • The growing demand for water makes conservation and efficient use central issues.
  • Water infrastructure is becoming more expensive with rising chemical, energy and labor costs.
  • As water affordability decreases due to growing demand, more countries will consider privatizing water supply.
  • Integrating technology into water and sanitation infrastructure is cost effective.
  • Public-private partnerships Alternative delivery approaches offer governments the opportunity to partner with private sector investors and service providers to optimize the delivery of water and sanitation services.
  • COVID-19 has put greater pressure on the demand for the provision and access to water services.
  • Water is seen as the next critical risk, as many agricultural and manufacturing businesses are highly dependent on water.

GAST Clearwater predicts that the majority of wastewater treatment and sanitation facilities can seek to save nearly 20% of their annual OPEX by switching to a GAST Clearwater system, plus a GAST Clearwater system costs on average 25% less to build compared to a current standard conventional installation, which represents a considerable saving in CAPEX.
