Concluding Exclusive Sales Agreement with Bureau of Waterworks Tokyo Metropolitan Government on Sales Initiation of Co-developed “Low-energy Aeration System (AERSYS)”
On March 25th, 2016, Bureau of Waterworks Tokyo Metropolitan Government (“Tokyo Waterworks”) and Nagaoka International Corporation, registered address at Kaizuka City, Osaka, Japan (“NAGAOKA”), have just concluded an exclusive sales agreement on sales initiation of the co-developed “Low-energy Aeration System”, brand named “AERSYS”.
This co-development of AERSYS was originally initiated by a mutual consent of Research & Development Center of Tokyo Waterworks and NAGAOKA to co-develop a new technology that can remove VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds, such as Trichloroethylene, etc.) to be satisfied with Japanese drinking water standard by applying the “VSAP” which had been invented by NAGAOKA, featured low energy and small space technology for treatment of VOC contained in groundwater at soil polluted area. This co-development led to an improved technology, brand named “AERSYS” that can be applied to remove VOC at even lower than Japanese water standard level. Effective performance and versatility of AERSYS were also proved through our pilot test. Based on the results of co-development, a joint patent of AERSYS has been being applied by Tokyo Waterworks and NAGAOKA. In addition, NAGAOKA discovered and confirmed that AERSYS could remove Free Carbon Dioxide contained in raw water.
For removing VOC at large scale, conventional VOC removal technologies have problems with requirements of complex equipment, resulting in large installation footprint and high amount of energy consumption. However, due to our compact and energy saving design, AERSYS remarkably reduce total initial and operation cost comparing to conventional VOC removal technologies. AERSYS can remove VOC and Free Carbon Dioxide at efficiency of more than 99%. This technology was successfully proved to remove VOC to extremely low level of 0.001 mg/L, which is 1/10 of Japanese drinking water standard level and reduce energy consumption amount to 60% comparing to conventional VOC removal technologies (from the result of our pilot test).
The conclusion of this exclusive sales agreement will deeply permeate the marketing of AERSYS for governmental waterworks and private companies’ facilities where VOC treatment and Free Carbon Dioxide removal is required, and expand a new market of NAGAOKA’s water business.
