City of Fayetteville Leads Nation with Innovative Ozone Technology
BlueInGreen and its partners, Pinnacle Ozone Solutions and PCI, chosen to provide groundbreaking HyDOZ® ozone treatment and disinfection solution to Noland Wastewater Treatment Facility
FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. (November 20, 2014) - BlueInGreen, LLC (BlueInGreen®) and its partners, Pinnacle Ozone Solutions, LLC (Pinnacle), and PCI, Inc., leading suppliers of ozone process technology and equipment, announced that they have been selected to provide a new state-of-the-art ozone system for the City of Fayetteville, Arkansas Paul R. Noland Wastewater Treatment. The new ozone disinfection system will feature BlueInGreen’s patented HyDOZ® gas dissolution technology, Pinnacle Ozone’s industry leading Zenith™ ozone generator systems, and PCI Gases’ DOCS-500 on-site oxygen generator systems, to provide the industry’s most compact and energy efficient ozone treatment and disinfection solution. Overall, the system will have the industry’s highest ozone transfer efficiency at over 40% lower energy and operating cost than competing conventional technology.
In 2012, the City of Fayetteville launched an ambitious project to further improve the treated water quality from its Noland Wastewater Treatment facility. “The City looked at many different technologies that could handle the natural variations in flow and disinfection dose required at the treatment plant,” said Billy Ammons with CH2M HILL.
Pilot testing at the site demonstrated that BlueInGreen’s HyDOZ gas dissolution system combined with Pinnacle Ozone’s Zenith™ ozone generator platforms provide well over 99% efficiency, and peak energy efficiency under all the varying flow rates of the water treatment facility.
The Honorable Lioneld Jordan, Mayor of the City of Fayetteville, commented, “We are very pleased to see that a local company is providing industry-leading water treatment technology that helps us achieve both our water quality and financial goals. I am very excited to see the level of teamwork and collaboration that City Staff, our consultants CH2M HILL, BlueInGreen, Pinnacle, and PCI Gases have provided to make our project a success.”
“BlueInGreen is extremely pleased to have been selected for the Noland project for the City of Fayetteville,” said Clete Brewer, CEO, “as it validates all the hard work our team has put into commercializing this extremely innovative technology that has been developed right here at the University of Arkansas.” BlueInGreen’s HyDOZ, CDOX®, and SDOX® systems provide the highest power consumption turn-down, highest gas transfer efficiencies, and lowest total cost for the dissolving of gas into water, making many forms of treatment more practical and affordable. “We are also very pleased to work with other technology leaders such as Pinnacle and PCI Gases to deliver the most innovative and cost-effective solutions available.”
“An increasing number of facilities are looking to onsite generation to meet their high-purity oxygen needs,” said Mr. Steven Gibson, Senior Director Sales & Business Development of Oxygen Solutions for PCI Gases, “and we are thrilled to continue our working relationship with BlueInGreen.” For the Noland project, PCI Gases will supply three of its DOCS-500 onsite oxygen generators. “Our systems provide municipal customers, such as the City of Fayetteville, tremendous flexibility and operating cost advantages compared to liquid oxygen storage systems.”
Pinnacle Ozone Solutions will supply its Zenith™ series ozone generator systems for the Noland project, which offer nearly maintenance-free performance and up to 40% lower operating cost versus conventional systems. “Pinnacle Ozone is very fortunate to work with innovative partners such as BlueInGreen as it showcases what is possible by advancing ozone technology.” Mr. Smith continued, “We look forward to yet another successful installation in Pinnacle’s continued growth and success.”
