Ovivo signs licensing agreement with DC Water for DigestivorePAD


Ovivo, a global provider of water treatment equipment, technology and systems, has signed an exclusive licensing agreement with the District of Columbia Water and Sewer Authority (DC Water) for their patented post-aerobic digestion process.

Marketed under the brand name DigestivorePAD, this revolutionary approach to solids management places an aerobic digester after an anaerobic digester, providing increased volatile solids destruction, enhanced nitrogen and phosphorus removal as well as improved dewatering, leading to significant operational savings.

The DigestivorePAD technology will leverage DC Water’s years of collaborative research and open innovation on this proprietary concept as well as Ovivo’s decades of experience with sludge stabilization at high solids concentrations using both anaerobic and aerobic digestion, the company said.

Ovivo delivers conventional to highly technological water treatment solutions for the industrial and municipal markets.
