Ovivo completes acquisition of E2metrix

Montreal, Canada

Ovivo Inc. (“Ovivo”), a global provider of water and wastewater treatment equipment, technologies and systems, is pleased to announce the acquisition of E2metrix Inc. (“E2metrix”), a Sherbrooke, Quebec, Canada, based technology company which specializes in innovative & clean electro-technologies that are particularly effective to destroy perfluoroalkyl and polyfluoroalkyl substances (“PFAS”), commonly called the forever chemicals, and other emerging contaminants present in water and wastewater.
Since December 2021, Ovivo and E2metrix have been exclusively collaborating to develop an onsite commercially viable treatment system to remove and destroy PFAS present in municipal drinking water and other wastewaters utilizing E2metrix’ electrochemical oxidation technology at the heart of the integrated solution. The objective of this solution is to permanently safeguard public health and provide a viable onsite PFAS destruction option to our customers. In 2022, in conjunction with this exclusive collaboration, Ovivo made a strategic investment and took an equity participation in E2metrix to strengthen the partnership and accelerate the commercial development of the integrated solution.
Ovivo and E2metrix are piloting a joint solution in Alabama, USA, that has delivered impressive results to date with up to 99% reduction of PFOS and PFOA and over 85% reduction of total detectable PFAS in the water treated. These promising pilot results were presented by Ovivo and E2metrix at the Water Environment Federation's Technical Exhibition and Conference (“WEFTEC”) on October 3rd, 2023. The integrated solution can not only remove PFAS, but it can mineralize these forever chemicals into their elemental parts of carbon and fluorine, allowing for the safe return of water with non-detectable PFAS back to the environment or to drinking water supplies. Ovivo and E2metrix are planning more pilots to test the solution for numerous applications.
