Evoqua Water Technologies, a leader in mission-critical water treatment solutions, today announced the signing of an exclusive agreement with Ostara Nutrient Recovery Technologies Inc. The collaboration combines Ostara’s market-leading process solutions for nutrient recovery with Evoqua’s established water and wastewater treatment solutions to help customers recover nutrients and convert them into valuable fertilizers.
Under the agreement, Evoqua will lead the sales and implementation of Ostara’s unique nutrient recovery solutions into the North America and Western Europe markets. Evoqua’s established project delivery resources provide additional strength to further accelerate the growing adoption of nutrient recovery solutions to mitigate the excessive richness of nutrients in lakes and other bodies of water. Nutrient recovery solutions such as these can convert the excessive nutrient loads into a usable, beneficial product.
“Ostara’s industry-leading technology for nutrient recovery is a natural fit with Evoqua’s extensive wastewater treatment portfolio,” said Hervé Fages, Evoqua’s Executive Vice President and President of the Applied Product Technologies Segment. “We are pleased to enhance our offering of sustainable solutions, providing our customers with the opportunity to recover valuable resources from their wastewater treatment process while helping to reduce operating costs and meet their sustainability and circular economy goals.”
