Corodex in manufacturing deal with Biorem
Dubai, February 2, 2012
Dubai-based Corodex Industries, a part of Concorde-Corodex group (CCG), has signed a strategic manufacture under license (MuL) agreement with Biorem of Canada.
Under the agreement, Biorem will supply Corodex with proprietary inorganic media to be used in conjunction with Corodex Industries odour control systems.
Corodex will work under the design guidance of the Canadian company, to construct and build the systems in their facilities in the UAE, said a statement.
Mohanned Awad, director of business development for Concorde-Corodex Group, said: “The current technology is utilised by municipalities across the UAE. Odour control systems are usually used in pumping stations and sewage treatment plants and this new technology looks to replace traditional chemical scrubbers odour control systems that have high operational and maintenance costs.”
“The new system is biological wherein no chemical will be used. Sulfar-reducing bacteria and other types of bacteria are employed to remove contaminants from the air stream. There are health and safety benefits in the new system as well, as the traditional one used notoriously difficult to handle chemicals to purify the air streams,” Awad said.
“Biorem produces a superior range of filter media and has installed high-efficiency air emission systems worldwide, with over 700 references (actual site installations) including 36 references in the Middle East,” said Majdi El Sadek, area manager (Mena) for Biorem.
He said Municipalities across the region would gain substantial cost-savings in their operational and maintenance budgets by adopting the technology. “Municipal authorities in Oman, Qatar, and other countries in the Middle East are interested in this technology.”
“Corodex has invested in a sophisticated state-of-the-art pilot plant that can be placed at sites that require this type of technology to treat a side stream of the nuisance odor and configure an optimised custom solution before up scaling into a large system. This pilot system is now being configured with a client that prefers to keep the trial confidential till the final results,” Awad said.
Biorem is a leading clean technology company that designs, supplies and distributes a comprehensive line of high-efficiency biological-based air emissions control systems, the statement said.
These systems are used to eliminate odours, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), hazardous air pollutants (HAPs), and for the sweetening and conditioning of biogas renewable energy with a target segment that includes municipal sewage pumping stations, sewage treatment plants and solid waste treatment facilities, it said. – TradeArabia News Service
