Ovivo supports water, wastewater tech program with purchase of E2metrix

MONTREAL — Montreal-based water and wastewater treatment specialist Ovivo Inc. has announced the acquisition of E2metrix Inc. of Sherbrooke, Que., a technology company in the same sector.

E2metrix specializes in electro-technologies that destroy perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) and other contaminants present in water and wastewater, stated a release.

Since December 2021, Ovivo and E2metrix have been collaborating to develop a commercially viable treatment system to remove and destroy PFAS present in municipal drinking water and other wastewaters utilizing E2metrix’ electrochemical oxidation technology.

In 2022, Ovivo invested in E2metrix to strengthen the partnership and accelerate the commercial development of the service.

Ovivo and E2metrix are piloting a test program in Alabama that has delivered up to 99-per-cent reduction of PFOS and PFOA and over 85-per-cent reduction of total detectable PFAS in the water treated. The results were presented by Ovivo and E2metrix at the Water Environment Federation’s Technical Exhibition and Conference last October.

Ovivo and E2metrix are planning more pilots to test the service for other applications, including other municipal drinking waters, municipal wastewaters, industrial wastewaters and landfill leachates across North America.

“Following a very successful partnership with E2metrix, acquiring the remaining shares of the company became a key strategic objective for us in order to accelerate the development and commercialization of an integrated solution to destroy PFAS in water and wastewater, and to help our clients comply with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s proposed PFAS regulatory limits which will protect public health in our drinking water and in our environment for generations,” stated Pierre-Marc Sarrazin, treasurer of Ovivo, in a statement.
