Severn Trent signs agreement with Next Filtration for FOG technology
Severn Trent signed an agreement with Next Filtration to allow full-scale deployment of its Next FOG STOP technology, which reduces the buildup of fats, oils and grease (FOG). The deal, which also includes evaluation of additional applications, follows an extensive 18-month trial, during which time Next FOG STOP has helped reduce maintenance costs and flooding associated with sewer blockages. Using a safe and environmentally benign biological technology that enhances wastewater processes, Next FOG STOP can reduce aeration costs and the accumulation of biomass as well as control hydrogen sulphide (H2S). Additional formulations can remove hydrocarbons following oil spill contamination events.
In addition to FOG STOP, Next Filtration provides water and wastewater treatment technologies for use as an alternative to conventional filter sands, plus Next Scale Stop to prevent scale and Next QD (Quantum Disinfection), which is a media disinfectant.
