Corodex Industries, part of Concorde – Corodex Group (CCG), one of the Middle East’s pioneering providers of water, wastewater treatment and environmental services, has been named winner of the ‘Manufacturer of the Year – Air Treatment’ category of this year’s Climate Control Awards during its Gala Awards Ceremony held last November 19, 2014 in Dubai.
The award was given in recognition of the company’s successful innovative installation of a Biological Odor Control Plant in the United Arab Emirates.
Breaking away from the conventional odor control technologies such as chemical scrubber and carbon adsorption for treating odorous air in wastewater treatment plants, pumping stations and lifting stations, Corodex Industries designed an innovative bio-friendly technology of removing contaminants from air streams by means of sulfur-reducing bacteria and other types of bacteria for Sharjah Municipality, Dubai Municipality, Haya, and other municipalities in the region.
“We are truly honored to be given this award from Climate Control Middle East, which recognizes our continuing focus on innovation and breaking barriers when it comes to the development of engineering solutions,” said Mahmoud Awad, Managing Director of Concorde – Corodex Group.
“We developed this technology with the aim of exploring different means available to reduce operational costs involved since conventional technologies such as, chemical oxidation and absorption technologies, are very high in operational expenditure. In addition, these processes force you to use chemicals with the chemical absorption which cost money and more significantly, involve environment, health and safety risks. We found a solution that is slightly expensive in capital cost but considerably low in operational and maintenance costs,” explained Awad.
The annual Climate Control Awards is organized by CPI Industry, the publishers of Climate Control Middle East magazine. This year’s edition of the awards saw its largest attendance ever with over 400 attendees coming from all over the globe and 31 categories in competition.
“We are proud of the systems we have implemented in the region, which reflect our mission of working towards utilizing the latest technologies. We would like to thank Climate Control Middle East for this award and rest assured we will remain steadfast in our promise of playing a key role towards our commitment to protecting life and preserving the environment,” concluded Awad.
