Eric Gernath, CEO of Suez North America, sees a huge correlation between climate change and water. In what the Company calls the circular revolution, Gernath’s mission is to reduce greenhouse gas by recovering, reusing and recycling water as well as minimizing energy consumed in water and wastewater treatment.
Speaking on Water Online Radio, Gernath said, “We took a leading position after the cop21 Conference in Paris by forming an organization called the Business Alliance for Water and Climate Change. Essentially, we created a group of very large companies focused on reducing greenhouse gas effect.”
By installing biogas collection, treatment and reuse systems, SUEZ aims to reduce treatment plants’ greenhouse gas contributions by 30 percent. To learn more about some of the specific renewable energy projects SUEZ has been involved with, listen here:
