Metito Showcases Pioneering Water Technologies at WETEX 2018
Metito to display and perform real-time demonstrations of water technologies during the exhibition
Underlining its commitment to consistently develop sustainable water solutions bridging the gap between water supply and demand, Metito, a global provider of intelligent water management solutions, is participating for the second time at this year’s 3rd edition of Dubai Solar Show, part of Water, Energy, Technology, and Environment Exhibition (WETEX) on 23-25 October 2018 at the Dubai International Convention and Exhibition Centre.
During the exhibition, Metito will be introducing and performing live demonstrations for a number of pioneering sustainable water tech solutions, ranging from engineered membranes to water quality monitoring systems, all focused on offering more sustainable and eco-friendly alternatives that can be partially or fully powered by solar energy, as a value-added proposition.
‘Biopipe’, the world’s first fully in-pipe biological wastewater treatment technology, will be on display. This is a patented technology and is the only system in the world that can recycle wastewater without creating any waste by-products. The treated water is completely safe for use in organic farming, irrigation, underground aquifer injection, discharging into lakes, rivers or sea, or alternatively, it can be stored in clean water tanks for later usage.
Depending on the capacity of the plant, ‘Biopipe’ can be operated with solar energy. The technology was most recently utilized by the Sharjah City Municipality Agriculture and Environment Sector who celebrated the launch of the first-of-its-kind eco-friendly sewage treatment plant in the region, a few months back.
Developed in collaboration with Optiqua Technologies, Metito is also introducing ‘EventLab 2.0’, another patented technology that provides online and sample-based water quality monitoring through an award-winning optical ‘Lab-on-Chip’ sensor technology. This will be demonstrated live at Metito’s stand at WETEX. The technology is the solution of choice for applications where real-time, continuous and, sometimes remote monitoring of the overall stability of the water quality is crucial.
Metito will also feature its new product ‘Metito 4’ that integrates advanced sensing, instrumentation, fluid handling, and data communications technologies to bring the most sophisticated cooling tower and boiler controller services in the water treatment industry. The simple, intuitive programming makes it easy to control multiple cooling towers, boilers, closed loops, or virtually any water treatment process.
Metito Managing Director, Fady Juez, commented: “This year, we celebrate Metito’s 60th anniversary, and all through the years, we have been at the forefront of our industry through our innovative water solutions and technologies. It is our belief that new, more advanced technologies can revolutionize the water industry particularly in water-poor nations or less economically developed countries with only basic water infrastructure. Our ultimate goal is to enhance the sustainability and efficiency of our water solutions whilst reducing power usage and wastage to a minimum throughout the water cycle.”
Juez continued: “Bringing customized cutting-edge engineering and technology innovations to our clients and projects is the only way to tackle the systemic issues of water scarcity around the world. As such, Metito makes significant investments in our R&D department and has been actively scouting for and investing in advanced, potentially disruptive new technologies then present these types of intelligent solutions to the market.”
During WETEX, Metito will also be announcing the launch of a new technology solution in collaboration with Cooley Group, a global leader in the design, development, and manufacturing of sustainable, innovative, high-performance industrial engineered geomembranes.
The Dubai Solar Show, part of WETEX 2018, is a business-to-business platform to establish networks, build partnerships and share insights about the latest solar-energy technologies among the public and private sectors. Metito’s stand will be located in the same area, Hall 1 stand no. J15.
