Bühler Enterprises Monthey (BEM)
BUHLER ENTERPRISES consists of two companies located in Monthey – Switzerland. Excellence in quality of service and products is not only a need but also especially a requirement. From concept to completion, BEM provides a unique partnership to the local and worldwide working industry, able to manage and coordinate the various disciplines in order to offer you a service “customized” in the field of automation, electrics, mechanics and telecommunications.
Service “turnkey” in a spirit of partnership, is one of the secrets to the success of BEM. You are interested in our services, you want to judge the quality of our work …
The company is active in the development and commercialization of a new technology to perform electrochemical redox transformations. RedElec focuses on the economic and environmental impact of new technologies.
By working in the field of electrochemistry, it helps reducing the cost of industrial processing of substances, by minimizing the amount of required raw materials. Using the electron instead of traditional chemical agents can significantly reduce the impact of the technology on the environment.
RedElec is a dynamic company that takes concrete initiatives for a clean industry, addressing for example the micropollutants in an ambitious water treatment project.
NVTerra S.A. is member of the following associations
Cleantech (“clean technologies”) encompass all the technologies, industries and services which help to protect and conserve natural resources. In other words, cleantech are simply the services and technologies that facilitate the sustainable use of resources.
Cleantech Switzerland is a powerful interface between Swiss companies and foreign project and business partners. Our work is supported by a central database (Cleantech Cube) a key resource in ensuring focused easy access to Swiss technology and service providers.
NVTerra S.A. cooperates with the following bodies:
Swiss Bluetec Bridge
Clean water for BoP clients
The Swiss Bluetc Bridge seeks to accelerate sustainable access to quality drinking water for customers at the base of the social pyramid (“BoP”) in developing and emerging countries.
NVTerra was awarded for its project in Ivory Coast aiming at producing and distributing safe drinking water for the village of Addah and its neighbourhood.
FOEN: Federal Office for the Environment
The Federal Office for the Environment FOEN is the federal government’s centre of environmental expertise and is part of the Federal Department of the Environment, Transport, Energy and Communication.
NVTerra is currently involved in an applied research project with FOEN, evaluating a new ferric coagulation agent produced in-situ by electrolysis using only iron salt and electricity (Ferilec). Furthermore a small scale wastewater treatment plant NVSani including Ferilec coagulation and biofiltration for a complete treatment of domestic wastewater is being investigated.
HES-SO, University of Applied Science, Western Switzerland, Sion – Valais
The University of Applied Science Wallis (HES-SO Wallis) is part of the University of Applied Science Western Switzerland.
With a staff of about 50 (professors, scientific and technical assistants), our research team carries out several dozen projects per year and offers a large range of quality services including analyses and consulting.
NVTerra performs water analysis and experiments to optimise the production of Ferilec
EPFL, Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne
EPFL is Europe’s most cosmopolitan technical university. It receives students, professors and staff from over 120 nationalities. With both a Swiss and international calling, it is therefore guided by a constant wish to open up; its missions of teaching, research and partnership impact various circles: universities and engineering schools, developing and emerging countries, secondary schools and gymnasiums, industry and economy, political circles and the general public.
NVTerra Collaborates with several laboratories at EPFL for water analysis, water treatment experiments, electrochemical cells optimization and Ferilec characterization
