Depollution vessel used in waterways
Water Management Technologies II launched an aggressive
marketing campaign to raise awareness about water pollution and
new technologies available to remediate chemical waste, floating
debris and stormwater runoff.
As part of the campaign the company has launched a new website,
www.scavengervessel.com, which will contain information about the
company’s Scavenger depollution vessel and its patented Oxy-Plus
System™ that cleans the water by aerating it with a combination
of ozone and oxygenation. The Scavenger boat improves water quality
by reducing and eliminating bacteria and viruses, controlling algae
growth, improving water clarity and eliminating odors.
The Scavenger depollution vessel is currently
in use on the Miami River. In its five years on the River, more
than 40,000 cubic feet of trash has been removed, 20 billion gallons
of water decontaminated and 1.5 billion liters of oxygen introduced
into area waters. The technology has proved so successful and economical
in cleaning up the Miami River that government officials in Dade
County, Florida have gone far beyond the initial pilot project for
Scavenger. The Scavenger service contract has been through three
renewal cycles, extending through 2006.
