CST Wastewater Solutions have formed a partnership with the Talbot & Talbot wastewater and energy environmental solutions group. The move comes as CST Wastewater Solutions expand their industrial and municipal services and technologies from new headquarters established in Sydney after the name change from Contra-Shear Technology.
Michael Bambridge, Managing Director, CST Wastewater Solutions, said that the new partnership will give further impetus to the growth that led to the name change, with Talbot & Talbot bringing expertise through their four major divisions based in South Africa, including Talbot Laboratories, Talbot Engineering, Talbot Operations and Talbot Green Energy.
Talbot & Talbot have built a global reputation for effective solutions to wastewater management challenges. Their range of expertise (extending from comprehensive programmes to full scale wastewater treatment plants) has helped many clients to minimise discharge costs and issues while adhering to corporate and local government environmental regulations.
Talbot & Talbot's capabilities complement the broad range of quality cost-effective solutions CST Wastewater Solutions have built up in Australasia and the Asia-Pacific over 25 years, Michael Bambridge added.
Through Talbot & Talbot's expertise and new partnership CST Wastewater Solutions plans to strengthen their position in the market through customer-response, rapid and flexible packaged wastewater solutions for projects ranging from small individual plants to complete industrial estates and mining developments.
It will also extend the anaerobic and aerobic wastewater treatment technologies focused on industries such as the food and beverage, chemical, pulp and paper and primary industries. The experience of Talbot & Talbot will be invaluable in this process, given their national and international success in solving particular wastewater treatment problems in areas such as: breweries and other beverages, the pharmaceutical industry, mining, cane alcohol distillation, abattoirs, leather processing, aluminium sheet manufacturing, the ferrochrome industry, pulp and paper, vegetable oil, textiles, and food industries including confectionary and dairy.
Talbot & Talbot are also experienced in green energy initiatives, assisting industry in their constant search to find ways to drive down production costs and alleviate their dependence on water and energy suppliers.
