Portland, Maine. (July 10, 2020) —Environmental Business Journal®* (EBJ), a business research publication which provides high value strategic business intelligence to the environmental industry*, has honored ECT2 for Project Merit: PFAS Remediation in 2019.
“In what is widely regarded as a stable market, a number of companies exceeded the norms of low single-digit growth with double-digit growth or ambitious ventures into new practice areas or technology development,” said Grant Ferrier, president of Environmental Business International Inc. (EBI, Inc.), publisher of Environmental Business Journal.
ECT2 was recognized for deploying innovative technology to treat water contaminated by per- and polyfluoroalkyl substance (PFAS). Using their regenerable ion exchange resin technology, ECT2 was able to address the challenge at the Royal Australian Air Force (RAAF) Base Williamtown. The groundwater and stormwater contamination at the facility required the right technology in addition to a modular solution. By 2019’s end, approximately 923 million liters of contaminated water were treated with an estimated 13.5kg of removed PFAS from the aquifer.
“We focus on the right way to handle tough problems, leveraging our advanced treatment technology, unmatched real-world experience, and a relentless pursuit of excellence to deliver impressive results,” noted Andy Bishop, Chief Operating Officer of ECT2. “Our team continues to provide smart solutions like this around the globe, and we’re pleased to be recognized for our ongoing commitment to environmental stewardship.”
The 2019 EBJ awards will be presented at a special ceremony at the Environmental Industry Summit XVIII in San Diego, Calif. in September, 2020. The Environmental Industry Summit is an annual three-day executive retreat hosted by EBI, Inc.
