Global Establishes Joint Venture in the Philippines and Receives First Purchase Order for a 9,000 Gallons (35m3) Per Day
14th October 2020
RIDGEFIELD PARK, NEW JERSEY, OCTOBER 14, 2020.
Biopipe Global Corp., which developed the world’s only highly scalable onsite sludge free sewage wastewater treatment technology, has formally established, Bpipe Corporation, a joint venture company in the Republic of the Philippines. Simultaneously, we have received a purchase order for a 35m3/day plant which will serve as a reference plant, and we expect the plant to shipping in the current quarter. The global partnership of Biopipe Global Corporation with Abrimix (Pty) Ltd., a patented, affordable, highly efficient, and cost-effective system for treating all types of industrial water will also enable BPipe to pursue the industrial wastewater treatment market in the Philippines.
According to a World Bank Research Document on Philippines Sanitation Sourcebook and Decision Aid, Philippines produces an estimated volume of 50 liters per capita per day of wastewater which is about 5.3 million m3/day. The same report also stated that the equivalent sludge production from this wastewater is estimated at 40 liters per capita per year which is equivalent to about 4.2 million m3/year. Only about 10% of the wastewater is treated and only 5% of the total 105.5 million population is connected to a sewage system based on the report by the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR) in the 2019 14th annual WEPA (Water Environment Partnership in Asia) meeting. Mr. Freddie Canta, President of BPipe Corporation, stated that, "Biopipe, with its simple on-site, no-sludge, odor free, small area footprint and scalable system will help address the challenges in the current onsite sewage treatment market in the Philippines. We are looking forward to partnering with the Philippine government and the private sector in their efforts of providing better sanitation to Filipinos and promoting circular economy through water reuse. The market feedback is very encouraging as we already have several requests for proposals from companies in different sectors totaling to 5,884 cubic meter/day."
"The Philippines sanitation sector is at a crucial turning point," according to Biopipe Global Corp. Chief Marketing Officer (CMO), Ms. Nina F. Aquino, "due to new DENR building discharge regulations and growing public pressure to clean up Manila Bay from toxic fecal coliform. Initially, we plan to market to sectors that are the biggest growth drivers for the Philippines economy. These include hotels, shopping malls, mixed-use residential and office complexes, schools and hospitals. As part of our greater global cause, we will also continue efforts to promote the worldwide 100% reuse of treated wastewater to alleviate overpumping of groundwater and pollution of fresh water supplies. This message will be marked by a series of educational and inspirational campaigns on complete wastewater recycling that inspire a call to action for businesses and the government." Biopipe Global Corp., in association with WaterPhilippines and the Philippine Water Works Association Inc., will host a webinar titled, "Waste to Resource: Wastewater Treatment and Reuse for Business Profitability," on Wednesday, October 14, 2020 at 3:30 pm (GMT +8) where leaders from various parts of the water and sanitation sector will speak on best practices to achieve economic means to wastewater reuse & recycling.
Biopipe, a wholly owned subsidiary, has developed a patented 100% sludge-free, chemical-free, odor-free, silent, easy to assemble and install, scalable, low cost, ecological and virtually maintenance-free onsite sewage wastewater treatment system. It treats both grey and black water. The treated water exceeds EU and all local standards for discharge and can be reused for irrigation, flushing and cleaning.
