We are proud to announce that BDP EnviroTech has received a $1.56 million grant from the California Energy Commission (CEC) to demonstrate an innovative, energy-efficient, wastewater treatment project in the City of Rialto in San Bernardino County, California, United States. Located southeast of Los Angeles, Rialto has a population of 101,910 (2013). Veolia America will be BDP EnviroTech’s operating partner for this project.
The goal of the project will be to demonstrate that the Biological Double Efficiency Process (BDP), an innovative wastewater treatment technology developed by BDP Envirotech, will result in a substantial improvement in energy and water consumption when compared with traditional wastewater treatment technologies. The successful completion of the project could potentially lead to the complete retrofitting of four wastewater treatment plants in Rialto (totaling 11.7 million gallons per day of capacity).
The CEC Innovative Water and Energy Efficiency Demonstrations for the Commercial, Industrial or Water / Wastewater Sectors is one of the most challenging environmental award programs in the industry. The State of California has the most stringent and comprehensive water treatment requirements in the United State and BDP EnviroTech’s technology is fully compliant with these strict standards.
We strongly believe that this award is a significant step forward for BDP EnviroTech. The BDP treatment process has previously been identified by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency as an emerging technology for mainstream biological wastewater treatment. Based on simultaneous nitrification / denitrification principles, the BDP technology combines state of the art, easy to maintain aeration technology and an integrated all-in-one bioreactor process that results in 50% savings in energy, land footprint, operations and maintenance, and water use with a capital cost 30% less when compared to existing technologies.
