• New division for water sector

ESSEX, UK, Feb. 25, 2008 -- GB Environmental has announced a reorganization of the company that will combine the company's advanced UV water treatment equipment with its sister company's clean water filtration equipment under the new Divisional brand name of 'GB Municipal'.

Commenting on the announcement, Sales and Marketing Director, Ralph Coney, says, "This initiative will enable the Division's sales, installation and maintenance teams to provide a specialist service that will focus on the needs of the water sector."

GB Municipal's advanced water treatment filtration technologies are provided by The Roberts Filter Group -- the largest manufacturer of municipal and industrial systems in the US. The product range is suitable for both potable and waste applications and includes amongst others the Trilateral™ air/water underdrain system; the Infinity™ underdrain system; the Aries® managed air scour system; and the Dynamic Probe™. The filter underdrain systems are suitable for new filter schemes as well as refurbishments and are an effective alternative to nozzle and lateral underdrains.

The company's UV treatment technology is patent protected and recently received the Frost & Sullivan European Excellence in Technology award. The key advantages of the technique include extremely effective disinfection with low energy consumption.

Looking forward, Ralph Coney believes "The combination of the US market leader in filtration equipment and the most advanced UV disinfection technology in the world creates an extremely impressive product portfolio of water treatment products that will have a major impact on the market. We are extremely excited about the future of this rapidly growing company and we are confident that GB Municipal will become one of the industry's leading brands.

GB Environmental is one of the world's most technologically advanced manufacturers of UV technology, providing non-chemical disinfection of water, air and surfaces.
