Rich Cavagnaro, president of AdEdge Technologies Inc. will appear in the Amtrol booth #513 at the WQA Aquatech USA 2005 convention and trade show in Las Vegas, Nev., March 29 to April 2. Cavagnaro will be in the Amtrol booth to demonstrate AdEdge’s line of arsenic solutions. Do not miss this opportunity to speak with Cavagnaro about the company’s recent achievements and partnerships in the marketplace.
The company’s experience and expertise with arsenic removal recently won AdEdge six U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) Phase II Arsenic Demonstration Sites. The EPA already awarded AdEdge three out of the 12 sites for Phase I of the arsenic demonstrations. In addition, AdEdge has had much success with projects all over the world, including some of the most challenging locations in India and Bangladesh. More than one million people are using AdEdge products and integrated solutions in homes, businesses and small water systems worldwide to remove arsenic V and III, iron, manganese, lead, chromium, antimony, cadmium and other contaminants.
AdEdge products utilize AD33, an iron-based media developed by Bayer AG Germany, to deliver turnkey systems for treating both arsenic III and arsenic V down to non-detectable levels. The company offers a wide range of products that are used in small municipal water systems, private wells, home water systems and filters and environmental remediation services.
In early 2004, AdEdge announced an agreement for Amtrol to provide arsenic removal systems to the residential whole-house water treatment market. AdEdge Technologies developed the AdEdge Medallion Point-of-Entry system to reduce arsenic contamination for residential applications. The technology has been commercially proven to effectively and economically meet new government standards. The company uses the patented, NSF Standard 61-approved media, BayoxideE33. "The relationship with Amtrol enables AdEdge to have a far greater reach in the market and to partner with an accomplished company that has continually raised the bar in servicing the well drilling marketplace," stated Rich Cavagnaro, president of AdEdge.
In 2002, the EPA reduced its arsenic maximum contaminant level (MCL) from 50 ppb to 10 ppb, and all public water systems must find efficient and affordable technology to be in compliance by January 2006. Residents, particularly those on private water supplies, are strongly encouraged to have their water tested for arsenic.
