374Water Enters Into a Strategic Engineering Services Agreement With Baran Group
DURHAM, NC / ACCESSWIRE / September 2, 2021 / 374Water Inc.(OTCQB:SCWO), a social impact, cleantech company located in Durham, North Carolina, and Baran Group LTD. (BRAN.TA), a global provider of engineering, technology, telecommunication, and construction solutions headquartered near Tel Aviv, Israel, have entered into a Service Agreement whereby Baran Group will support 374Water with the engineering design of its AirSCWO Nix6 system.
AirSCWO is an innovative treatment technology that uses supercritical water oxidation to treat a variety of organic wastes, in particular wet wastes in concentrated slurries such as wastewater sludge and biosolids; fats, oils, and greases (FOG); food, animal, agricultural, pharmaceutical, and chemical wastes; and pervasive, persistent chemicals like PFAS and microplastics.
"Baran's solutioning and engineering capabilities in energy, water, and industrial processes makes them the ideal strategic partner to support the engineering design of our AirSCWO Nix6 system," states Kobe Nagar, Cofounder and CEO of 374Water. "Our engineering team is thrilled to collaborate with the creative, innovative, and proven team at Baran"
"Baran has vast experience in design, execution, and operation of various engineering projects. Baran is well acquainted in the market of energy and water treatment as well, so we are excited to work with 374Water's team of engineers on the final design of their AirSCWO Nix6 system" said Ronan Chitterer, Engineering & Technologies Manager.
AirSCWO Nix6 systems are prefabricated, compact, and modular so they can be cost-effectively deployed and operated within the footprint of an existing plant to treat waste at its source. The first units are expected to deploy in the first half of 2022.
