FARMINGDALE, NY, Nov. 27, 2012 -- Advanced Waste & Water Technology, Inc. (AWWT), a testing and wastewater treatment firm has launched a Hurricane Sandy Emergency Response initiative to immediately assist with contaminated water cleanup efforts in the Tri-State area due to Hurricane Sandy.
AWWT’s Hurricane Sandy Emergency Response initiative features ElectroCleanse™, a patented and proven green technology developed for commercial and industrial use that provides an on-site closed-loop process to treat and recycle wastewater without chemicals.
The on-site treatment systems are scalable to meet volume demands and remove volatile and non-volatile pollutants such as petroleum, diesel, kerosene, chemicals, sewage and saltwater, among others.
“The devastation of Hurricane Sandy continues to impact our communities in the Tri-State area,” said Patricia Els, President of Advanced Waste & Water Technology. “Our on-site system eliminates the need for municipalities to temporarily store this contaminated water,” continued Els. “We treat it at or close to its collection point to expedite cleanup and reduce the chance of further contamination.”
AWWT’s solutions utilize electrocoagulation technology, a process that has been successfully used in the United States for decades in Texas, Wyoming, New Mexico, Colorado and California with nearly 99 percent effectiveness to treat water used in mining, municipal waste systems, oil fields and the hydraulic fracturing of natural gas.
