AFR BOSS innovation list recognises SUEZ

SUEZ has been recognised as an industry leader in innovation for providing solutions to Australia’s water and process challenges, ranking 9th on the Australian Financial Review Boss Magazine’s Most Innovative Companies list (Agriculture, Mining and Utilities category).

SUEZ made the list from over 800 nominated organisations across Australia and New Zealand for its Cleargreen Mainstream technology and commitment to fostering a culture of innovation.

Cleargreen Mainstream is a solution that enables water utilities to recover resources from wastewater and transform it into energy. The technology reduces oxygen consumption by 50% compared with conventional treatment and increases biogas production, supporting water utilities on their journey towards carbon neutrality.

SUEZ Australia & New Zealand CEO Mark Venhoek said he was delighted that the technology has been acknowledged in Australia.

“SUEZ is very proud of the recognition of SUEZ’s Cleargreen Mainstream technology to re-use and recover our valuable resources and transform it into energy, which goes to the heart of SUEZ’s purpose,” he said.

An important milestone for the acceleration of water treatment innovation in Australia is the company’s partnership with South East Water to upgrade the Boneo Water Recycling Treatment Plant on the Mornington Peninsula in Victoria. The upgrade will deliver the first implementation of Cleargreen Mainstream in Australia and will help make a positive difference to over 150,000 people in the Mornington Peninsula.
