SANTA CLARA, Calif. — October 3, 2017 — Based on its recent analysis of the North American biological wastewater treatment market, Frost & Sullivan recognizes Baswood Corporation with the 2017 Technology Innovation Award. Baswood utilizes proven fixed-film, fixed-media wastewater treatment solutions by sequencing technologies in a unique way. Baswood received two patents—for its Aerobic/Anaerobic Integrated Media System (AIMS) and its Dry Cycle Aerobic/Anaerobic Digestion (DCAD) solution, which is used in the AIMS— that form the basis of its products.
Originally designed to treat municipal secondary solids more efficiently, Baswood’s uniquely sequenced design quickly caught the attention of leading soft drink companies. Baswood’s current installations employ proven aerobic biological processes that consistently manage high strength loading typically found in beverage plants. Baswood was selected for this award because their system effectively treats wastewater within a significantly smaller energy footprint and, ultimately, much lower operating costs. The systems based on these innovative processes are thus able to provide customers with a strong return on investment (ROI).
“What particularly impresses Frost & Sullivan is that together, the processes are able to overcome the major challenges of chemical and energy use, sludge management, and lack of operation ease that currently hamper the industry,” said Sharath Thirumalai, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan.
Baswood offers two products addressing different markets:
• BioViperTM, which serves processing industries. BioViper™ is suitable for treatment of food and dairy processing wastewater.
• BioVoreTM, for municipal customers. It is ideal for digestion of secondary biosolids from the municipal wastewater treatment process.
“Frost & Sullivan appreciates that the Baswood systems occupy a small physical footprint, which is possible due to vertical configuration of treatment zones, and enable a smaller carbon footprint due to lower energy consumption as compared to traditional biological treatment systems,” Thirumalai said. “Hence, a Baswood treatment facility can be built within an existing industrial facility’s boundaries.” Baswood is a market disruptor because of their approach and the fact that they’ve provided customers with significant surcharge reduction and, ultimately, a quick financial return.
“Baswood delivers proven solutions to industrial and municipal wastewater treatment customers that adhere to the stringent wastewater discharge limits,” Thirumalai said. “By simply adding common tertiary equipment Baswood systems can meet water reuse standards, which helps in maintaining sustainability while offering low operational and maintenance costs, subsequently providing high ROI to its customers.”
Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that strives to be best-in-class in three key areas: understanding demand, nurturing the brand, and differentiating from the competition.
