H2O Innovation process accorded highest rating by Quebec technology assessment committee
QUEBEC CITY, QUE-A joint Quebec government committee for the assessment of new technologies has accorded H2O Innovation "proven technology" ranking for the company's NanH2Osoft nanofiltration membrane process for groundwater treatment. This is the highest possible classification granted by the committee and makes H2O the first and only company holding a membrane filtration technology that can be sold without limitation in the province of Quebec. The joint committee represents the Quebec ministries of Sustainable Development, Environment and Parks and of Municipal Affairs and Regions. Its mandate is to analyze proposed technologies for drinking water treatment and evaluate their level of development. To qualify for classification, a technology must have been validated over a period of at least 12 months of full-scale operation; it must have been monitored by a third independent party and must have demonstrated that its performance results in compliance with Quebec water regulations. NanH2Osoft is designed to remove total dissolved solids composed mainly of calcium, magnesium, sodium and chlorides. This type of water is usually called brackish water because of its high salt concentration and is commonly found throughout the province.
