New waste water technology company wins 2006 EUREKA Lynx Award

The Croatian SME EcoEngineering wins the 2006 EUREKA Lynx Award for outstanding technological and commercial achievement. EcoEngineering was a partner in the EUROENVIRON BIOMAC project; contributing essential expertise on the micro-organisms best suited for an innovative system for treating industrial and municipal waste water. The award was presented today by Mr J. Havel, Deputy Prime Minister of the Czech Republic, at the EUREKA 2006 Ministerial Conference in Prague.

Commenting on the award, EcoEngineering Director Dr Vice Soljan said: "We are very honoured for two reasons we are the first Croatian company to win an award through participating in EUREKA, and also we are the first company to win a EUREKA award for both the company and the project." EcoEngineering was a partner in the E! 2497 EUROENVIRON BIOMAC project which was named today as joint winner of the EUREKA Lillehammer award for projects in environmental technology.

Waste water is conventionally biologically treated by bacterial biomass, known as activated sludge, which breaks down waste products into simple forms. However many toxic substances or complex mixtures of compounds, coming from industrial or municipal wastes cannot be broken down effectively in this way. The BIOMAC project developed a new system using specially designed mixtures of different bacteria, in granular form, which can break down even the most toxic wastes.

EcoEngineering supplied its extensive knowledge and its collection of bacteria and yeasts to enable the system to use the optimum mixture for waste water with any complement of pollutants.

Dr Soljan explains: "What we have done is to open completely new possibilities for biological waste water treatment. The process is much more efficient than the conventional method; it uses less energy and less oxygen, and produces less sludge for disposal. We have tested and applied our system from laboratory to full scale, and it works even on complex pollutant mixtur
