Based on its ongoing success in Canada and abroad, newterra was profiled recently in the Leading Growth Firm series, published by Ontario’s Ministry of Economic Development, Trade and Employment and Ministry of Research and Innovation. The article highlighted newterra and its modular membrane bioreactor (MBR) technology, likening the firm to ZENON Environmental and Trojan Technologies, two major water purification firms that have their roots in Ontario.
newterra’s edge is the cost-saving modularity of its systems, which use cassette-type filters that can be configured to any capacity, yet require half the space of competing systems. “It’s all driven by what the customers tell us they want,” says Lounsbury. “Our systems are plug and play, and arrive on site ready to go.”
