Guelph, Ontario-based Biorem has signed four new deals totalling $2.2 million primarily to eliminate volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and industrial odour.
The largest order, the company stated January 2, 2013, is for $1.4 million to cover a VOC and odour removal project in Moscow, Russia.
“Biorem has been methodically developing biological treatment processes through its advanced research and development activities for several years to commercialize solutions for VOC air abatement systems,” said Biorem President and CEO Peter Bruijns in a statement to media. “Our commercial approach is to proceed steadily and systematically into target market niches within this vast $2.5 billion global market by ensuring reliable VOC abatement systems are provided to our customers.”
Biorem was also awarded its third order from a major petrochemical client in Brazil for a system to destroy odour and VOC emissions from a refinery and wastewater treatment facility. Two additional orders were for odour control systems within municipal wastewater treatment plants in Canada and the US.
Each of the four orders is scheduled for completion in 2013, Biorem stated.
