Newterra continues its growth momentum in the water sector with the acquisition of TIGG

BROCKVILLE, ONTARIO – OCTOBER 08, 2019

Newterra Group Ltd. (“Newterra”), a leading supplier of water solutions to the municipal, industrial and environmental remediation sectors, is excited to announce that, as of October 8, 2019, it has acquired TIGG LLC (“TIGG”), a leading manufacturer of high-quality carbon and media adsorption equipment and solutions.

For over 40 years, TIGG® has manufactured activated carbon adsorption equipment and provided liquid and vapor treatment solutions for municipal water, environmental remediation applications, and industrial manufacturing facilities. TIGG’s engineers and technical experts are among the best in the field. They work closely with clients to design the optimal treatment solution. TIGG regularly treats water sources contaminated with PFAS, 1,4 Dioxane, trace metals, and hydrocarbons. On the air side, TIGG has expertise at VOC removal, odor control and the treatment of off-gas from MGP treatment projects.

TIGG’s tanks and pressure vessels are proudly made in the United States in their 155,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility. TIGG fabricates both ASME code and non-code tanks up to 14 feet in diameter and offers lining and finish coating of the tanks in their on-site paint facility.

Doug Conley of TIGG explains, “Joining Newterra will allow TIGG customers access to a broader range of treatment technologies and allow our products to be sold through their expansive and growing sales network. By combining the two companies, we will be able to penetrate new vertical industry sectors and expand geographically. Newterra, with its 27-year history in the environmental remediation market, understands TIGG’s business and there are many synergies between the companies that are exciting.”

Tom Vossman, CEO of Newterra stated, “The acquisition of TIGG is a win-win for both companies. TIGG expands Newterra’s reach into the remediation, municipal and industrial sectors while providing a strong manufacturing base for vessel production for Newterra’s environmental business as well as its growing Cochrane Industrial water treatment business. Newterra enhances TIGG’s system capabilities with its years of complex system integration experience, and the ability to handle larger, more challenging projects such as Superfund sites and larger industrial projects. We are extremely excited to welcome TIGG to the Newterra family.”

Difficulty With Accurate Testing For BOD In Industrial Stormwater Runoff

Biochemical oxygen demand (BOD) is a measure of the amount of dissolved oxygen used by microorganisms to break down organic material in a sample of water. Because BOD is not one specific pollutant, it can be difficult to characterize the nature of BOD, identify the source in stormwater runoff, and select the appropriate treatment approach to reduce BOD in stormwater runoff and discharge. The most effective way to minimize BOD concentrations in stormwater discharges will be to minimize the exposure of stormwater to materials that are a source of BOD.

What is PFAS?

PFOA (perfluorooctanic acid) and PFOS (perflurooctane sulfonate) are organic synthetic chemicals that have been used in manufacturing a multitude of industrial and consumer-based products including coatings, carpeting, and fire-fighting foams. Over several decades, they have contaminated the environment, specifically our drinking water sources, causing significant health concerns that recently prompted the EPA to take action.

What is Activated Carbon?

Although the term granular activated carbon is used generically, it can refer to dozens of similar – but not identical- adsorbents. Depending on raw material, method and degree of activation and other factors, activated carbons can perform differently in various applications.
