Strategic Alliance announced between Kvaerner Chemetics and Electrolytic Technologies

Kvaerner Chemetics of Vancouver, BC., and Electrolytic Technologies Corporation, North Miami Beach, FL., announce today that they have formed a Strategic Alliance to supply safer, cost effective technology to the municipal water and wastewater treatment market for the generation of chlorine, sodium hydroxide and sodium hypochlorite.

Kvaerner Chemetics, a world leader in the design, supply and erection of proprietary chlor-alkali process plants and the Electrolytic Technologies Corporation, designers and manufacturers of modular onsite chlor-alkali generation equipment for the municipal water industry today announced a multi-year agreement to form a Strategic Alliance to supply proven technology to the municipal water and wastewater market.

Under the agreement, Kvaerner Chemetics’ technology will be incorporated into modularized and semi-custom engineered designs specifically for large municipal water treatment applications. By joining Electrolytic Technologies Corporation’s industry-leading platform for cost efficient modular onsite generation of chlorine gas, sodium hydroxide and very pure high-strength sodium hypochlorite, the companies will be able to address the recent demand by the U.S. EPA which calls for water and wastewater operators to incorporate “inherently safer technologies” as alternatives to storage of bulk chemicals such as liquid chlorine and pressurized chlorine gas. The combined, vertically integrated product line of the two companies will enable the new alliance to meet the disinfection requirements for major municipalities requiring from 50 lbs to 50 tons of active chlorine per day.

In addition, the Strategic Alliance, coupled with Electrolytic Technologies Corporation’s operational management and credit facilities, will enable the offering of “DBOO” (design, build, own and operate) plants for virtually any large municipal customer.

Chuck Kotzo, Kvaerner Chemetics’ Business Development Manager states “This alliance brings together the unique aspects of both companies’ technology and experience and provides communities across North America with a new direction in water and wastewater management.” Derek Lubie, President of Electrolytic Technologies: “Considering the new threats faced by major municipalities across North America, they will now be able to dramatically reduce the amount of chlorine stored on site using this safe and economical alternative.”
