companies, along with contracts for our Bio-Wheel wastewater treatment
systems, these contracts cover the full breadth of our water treatment
systems offering", stated Frédéric Dugré, President and CEO of H2O Innovation. "We are also particularly pleased to have obtained five

equipment investments have been rare since the beginning of the
recession", concluded Frédéric Dugré.

nanofiltration systems for the production of drinking water and for
