A.M. Briefing: Koreans are coming

Blue Water Technologies, Inc., said today that on June 21 they

will host a contingent of 35 engineers and officials from the Korean

Ministry of the Environment.

The group is coming to the U.S. to visit Blue Water and study nutrient

removal from wastewater. They will visit Blue Water’s corporate

headquarters and research facility for technical presentations.

Additional site trips include the Coeur d’Alene wastewater treatment

plant and the new low phosphorus installation at Plummer awarded to

Blue Water in early 2009. The trip is seen as a major coup for the

small Idaho company.

“A group that size could easily be coming to the U.S. to visit GE or

some other Fortune 500 company but they are traveling to America to

visit Blue Water,” Blue Water President Tom Daugherty said. “We are

proud of the credibility we have established in the worldwide

marketplace. We believe this visit by the Korean environmental

officials will result in increased commerce in that region.”

Blue Water plans to show some down-home hospitality to their Korean

visitors. After a cruise on Lake Coeur d’Alene the group will proceed

to a private residence on the Spokane River for a western barbecue.

Blue Water Technologies is a 7-year-old privately held company

originated as a technology transfer from the University of Idaho for

advanced phosphorus removal. The company has since licensed and

invented additional technologies that target various contaminants in

wastewater. The company markets advanced phosphorus removal systems,

wastewater reuse filtration, primary treatment, and renewable energy

solutions for the municipal, industrial, and commercial markets.
