Clean TeQ Holdings awarded A$2.75m contract for Melbourne odour control facility

Clean technology company Clean TeQ Holdings (ASX: CLQ) has been awarded a A$2.75 million contract to design and construct an odour control facility (OCF) at the Eastern Drop Structure on the Hobson’s Bay Sewer Line located below the Westgate Bridge, Melbourne.

Clean TeQ has had a long association with Melbourne Water since the company first supplied an earlier version of the biotechnology over a decade ago.

Design of the OCF under the first part of the contract, which was awarded by Baulderstone and United Group Infrastructure on behalf of Melbourne Water, is due to be completed by the end of November 2012.

Construction of the facility under the second part of the construction is scheduled to start in October 2012 with completion in December 2013.

The OCF will use Clean TeQ’s proprietary OdourTeQ biological air treatment technology.

Technologies in mining

Clean TeQ is introducing patented technologies that reduce water pollution by removing salts and toxic materials in groundwater, coal waters, mining waters and wastewaters.

The company has developed, patented and proven technologies that extract, purify and recover valuable metals from ores and sludge in the mining and mineral processing industries.

Net profit for FY12

Clean TeQ reported a net profit of A$1.25 million for the year ended 30 June 2012 on revenue of A$12 million.

This was made on the back of a number of large contracts secured by its Air Division including the design, construction and delivery of air capture and purification systems for two wastewater treatment plants in New South Wales.
