H2O Innovation Gains Exclusive Distribution Rights For Advanced ROTEC Desalination Technology

H2O Innovation Inc. (“H2O Innovation” or the “Corporation”) is proud to announce the conclusion of a cooperation framework agreement granting the Corporation the exclusive right to sell ROTEC (“ROTEC”) proprietary desalination Flow Reversal (FR) technology in the North American biofuels market.

ROTEC is a business unit of the WFI Group, which was founded in 2009. Their FR technology is distinguished not only by its cost effectiveness but also by the various key advantages it provides. The FR technology, which can be implemented in new and existing reverse osmosis (RO) plants, allows the flow direction in RO pressure vessel arrays to be periodically switched, increasing product water capacity while maintaining the same amount of feed water that can also be reduced. Most importantly, ROTEC's patented approach reduces membrane fouling and scaling issues allowing the reduction of the frequency of required cleaning-in-place procedures, which is an amazing step toward time efficiency, environmental effectiveness, and sustainability.

“This is an amazing opportunity for us to provide this technology to North America and to add it to our innovation portfolio. As the Flow Reversal provides enhanced efficiency and performance for a wide range of water treatment applications, it will be a game changer for one of the core markets, the biofuels industry,” stated Frédéric Dugré, President, Chief Executive Officer and co-Founder of H2O Innovation.

“Each market has its own set of challenges and specifications. H2O Innovation has a great deal of experience in many different markets including a particularly strong reputation for quality solutions in the biofuels space. We are happy to be able to work with them to bring additional water resiliency and efficiency options to that space and beyond,” stated Bruce Alderman, Chief Executive Officer of ROTEC USA.
