Microvi Announces Strategic Collaboration with Murraysmith + Quincy in the United States

HAYWARD, Calif., May 25, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Microvi is teaming up with Murraysmith + Quincy to deliver high-quality drinking water through its MicroNiche Engineering™ (MNE) solution to more communities in the United States.

With contaminants such as ammonia, nitrate, perchlorate, chlorinated solvents, 1,4-dioxane, and many others threatening public health and environmental sustainability, engineers need to embed water treatment infrastructure with affordable and reliable purification technology. The MNE platform does just this—providing clean drinking water cost-effectively and simply—all without producing a significant secondary waste stream. Microvi MNE™ is a single pass biological water treatment system that requires minimal startup, operation, and maintenance time with a smaller footprint than similar, alternative treatment methods.

“This new technology could be a game-changer for our clients and the communities that they serve. Not only could the Microvi MNE solution save clients millions of dollars right off the bat, but it could also allow for their communities to have access to clean drinking water at a lower cost. Murraysmith is eager to work with existing and new clients to integrate this cost-effective and reliable technology into our water treatment plant designs,” said Lee Odell, Principal Engineer at Murraysmith + Quincy Engineering.

“We continue to best position our MNE solutions for long-term profitable growth. This strategic partnership with MurraySmith + Quincy enables us to create a more focused business around our technology offering for nitrogen removal in the drinking water sector. We will also boost our innovation and business development efforts to capture emerging trends in the drinking water market,” said Dr. Fatemeh Shirazi, CEO of Microvi.

Murraysmith + Quincy Engineering was founded in 1980 with a key mission to provide high-quality municipal engineering services to public agencies.
