STAR Water to participate in Australia Week in China

STAR Water is excited to announce its participation in Australia Week in China (AWIC 2016) from 11-16 April. AWIC is an initiative of Austrade and will be one of Australia’s largest business delegations to China.

AWIC is composed of eight specific programs held in multiple cities in China – STAR Water will be part of the Urban Sustainability & Water Management Program. This program will be focusing on the coastal city of Xiamen and the canal city of Jiaxing – which are two of the sixteen pilot ‘sponge’ cities in China – as well as cities in the Zhejiang province .

The China Sponge City Program was created after more than 230 cities were affected by flooding in 2013 and also in an effort to become a more sustainable country. A sponge city acts like a sponge soaking up rainwater within an urban environment and capturing that water for reuse. The recycled water is then retained by the sponge for reuse applications which can include irrigating gardens and urban farms, recharging depleted aquifers, and even home and toilet water when treated properly.

STAR Water’s Reactive Filter Media is the “Sponge” in Sponge Cities and the only computer designed bio-flitration media that uses STAR Water’s Kalkulus™ media design modelling tool.

STAR Water at Singapore International Water Week 2014

STAR Water generated considerable interest at Singapore International Water Week 2014 (1-5 June) for its new generation Reactive Filter Media Technology. Responding to trends in Sustainable Cities Initiatives, many visitors to the STAR Water stand recognised the need  for better performing bio-filters to meet increasing expectations.

STAR Water in Singapore

STAR Water has established a Singapore corporation STAR Water Technologies Pte Ltd to undertake regional specific R&D. Pilots are being established on Jurong Island and in Singapore CBD.

STAR Water Expands US Operations

STAR Water has expanded it’s US operations with the establishment of a dedicated US corporation STAR Water USA

A national distribution network has been established for Safe Sox, Safe Sax and other proprietary devices.

Two new product distributors have been appointed WTB in Northern California and Enviro Products West in Southern California.

 

STAR Water has initiated a Greenhouse Gas Inventory to analyse its carbon footprint!

The total carbon inventory calculated for STAR Water Solutions is 153 tonnes of carbon dioxide equivalent (TCO2e) for 2011/12. Approximately 99% of the business’s carbon footprint is from air travel.

In addition to currently purchasing 100% Greenpower, STAR Water Solutions has decided to reduce its carbon footprint by offsetting part of its emissions through two different projects:

BHL Biogas and Bagasse based cogeneration project activity at Kinauni

The project activity is an extraction and combustion of biogas and utilisation of biogas in the boiler for steam generation. The steam generated is supplied to the turbine for power generation. The project is by Bajaj Hindustan Limited (BHL) in Kinauni, Uttar Pradesh, India. In the absence of the project BHL would have treated the spent wash in an open lagoon treatment system and steam would have been generated from the Bagasse fired boiler and power imported from the coal fired grid.

Native Tree Planting

Carbon Neutral’s Biodiverse native Australian tree planting project offers biodiverse conservation plantings using trees and shrubs that are native to Australia. While there is a place for monoculture planting (one species over a wide area), the advantage of biodiverse planting is that it helps to keep the environment in a natural balance. A habitat which is species-rich is more resilient and adaptable to one in which the range of species is limited.

STAR Water’s goal is to decrease its overall greenhouse gas emissions by reducing GHG emitting activities and purchasing offsets where possible.
