newterra teams up with Queen’s University on green technology

Brockville, ON – (February 27, 2013) New research involving newterra water filtration technology is exploring whether it can provide renewable energy to help power wastewater treatment systems. Funded by a FedDev Ontario grant, Queen’s University researcher, Bruce Anderson is evaluating the integration of newterra’s MicroClear™ flat sheet membranes with the current system as an effective method for increasing biogas production generated from the treatment of wastewater.

“The $68,798 in FedDev Ontario funding will allow us to improve filtration at wastewater plants and, more importantly, increase biogas production,” says Dr. Anderson, who worked with newterra to evaluate the technology.
