OTTAWA, July 2, 2015—BluMetric Environmental Inc. (TSX.V: BLM), an Ottawa-based cleantech company, today announced the signing of a significant technology, business, and project development agreement with Aquarion AG, an integrated water solutions company headquartered in Baar, Switzerland.
Highlights of the Agreement
Under the framework of this agreement, the companies will jointly address wastewater treatment issues in the context of increasingly stringent government regulation and exacting client demands, cooperate on the development of new technologies in the face of evolving industry needs, and support each other’s growth through strategic sectoral and regional business development.

“This agreement with Aquarion and their subsidiary companies furthers BluMetric’s strategy of selective partnering to expand and enhance our technologies, the sectors and regions we service, and ultimately the quality of that service to our clients,” said Roger Woeller, CEO of BluMetric. “Our chosen area of endeavour is played in an international arena, and working with Aquarion dramatically extends our reach.
