MIOX Corp. has signed a distribution agreement with Veolia Water Solutions & Technologies for cooling tower water treatment, wastewater reuse, industrial water treatment and downstream oil and gas water applications.
This partnership joins two industry experts and marks a major milestone for both Veolia and MIOX.
"This is an exciting development for Veolia," says Nathalie Martin-Ionesco, global director of Hydrex (Veolia's water treatment chemicals range). "MIOX technology brings a competitive edge to Veolia's portfolio by effectively removing biofilm, reducing chemical usage and reducing carbon footprint."
MIOX has spent the last decade rapidly expanding its industrial cooling tower installation base and developing technologies that support water management and recycling for industrial and oil and gas applications, according to company officials. Many MIOX customers have pioneered solutions by integrating MIOX on-site generated chemistries into their water treatment programs.
The most resounding successes have been achieved using MIOX's flagship disinfectant Mixed Oxidant Solution (MOS) product line, primarily due to its ability to strip biofilm and algae.
"MIOX technology is scalable to meet water challenges of any size," says Cem Candir, MIOX vice president of sales and marketing. "Our proprietary on-site chemical generation process brings a unique, cost effective yet powerful product to traditional water treatment."
MIOX says its new arrangement with Veolia is consistent with a company approach of establishing long-term partnerships with quality companies that have the ability to focus on specific market segments in select geographies.
