Our Commitment to the Environment

USP Technologies' slogan, "Solutions for a clean environment" characterizes our approach to sustainable practices.   We have served the environmental market for over 20 years with peroxygen-based treatment programs and have offices and field service locations throughout North America. With our growing partner associations, we continue to develop new environmentally friendly technologies and the capability to serve global markets.

Protecting the Environment

USP Technologies (USP) provides performance-driven, full-service, environmental treatment programs to help purify water, wastewater, soil and air. In addition to peroxygen-based applications in municipal wastewater and drinking water treatment, industrial wastewater treatment, remediation and UV-Oxidation, we specialize in chemical treatment programs that deliver process performance enhancement benefits. By optimizing performance, chemical usage is reduced and effluent outflow meets environmental standards, protecting natural ecosystems.  In remediating toxic sites, we help restore the balance that supports natural habitats. 

Our peroxygen-based products and services help achieve for our customers and the community:

  • Water savings and waste minimization
  • Conversion of waste streams to usable products
  • Use of current equipment to treat greater loads

Hydrogen Peroxide is Environmentally Friendly and Safe

  • Hydrogen Peroxide is a natural metabolite of many organisms, which decompose the H2O2 they produce into oxygen and water.
  • It is also formed by the action of sunlight on water
  • Natural purification system for our environment.
  • Hydrogen Peroxide has none of the problems of gaseous release or chemical residues associated with other chemical oxidants
  • No halogens
  • Hydrogen Peroxide is totally miscible with water, the issue of safety is one of concentration.

Protecting Your Infrastructure Investment

Supply chain management continues our long-standing practice of buying locally, thus reducing unnecessary shipping and associated environmental impact on infrastructure, and the natural elements. 

In addition, our peroxygen-basedper wastewater treatment processes used in the collection systems extend the life of the infrastructure to avoid costly replacements of sewer and stormwater lines. With our turn-key programs, municipalities do not incur costly capital outlay that may contribute to indebtedness.

Examples of USP Technologies' Internal Sustainable Practices

Some examples of our dedication to environmentally responsible business practices and product development, which promote sustainable, innovative ideas include:

  • Our growth required expansion of product development and fabrication facilities that support North America. USP decided to remain, and expand, in the greater Buffalo, NY area. This allowed our facilities to utilize one of the largest sources of clean, carbon-free hydroelectricity. Growing in the Buffalo Niagara area also allows USP to support a business environment which, in turn, supports sustainable solar development via a raw material credit, smart grid design via research and development, and a host of other clean tech synergies.
  • The Product Fabrication Group at USP implemented a closed loop acid recycle system utilized in the manufacturing process. This provides a substantial reduction in the manufacturing waste stream and minimized impact on the treatment facilities affecting the local watershed.
  • USP, in consultation with FM Global, began utilizing thermographic imaging of the electrical supply system for the fabrication facility. This annual audit will provide indication of electrical inefficiency, curtail areas of waste, and provide a safe and incident free workplace.
  • We recycle cardboard and scrap metal.

Community Care and Involvement

USP is a member of the Water Environmental Federation (WEF) and serves on the Industrial Water Committee.  We have also held roundtable discussions with municipalities and their industrial customers to foster community, sharing of knowledge, to listen to participants' concerns and encourage ideas to learn from each other.

Ongoing Mission

USP enables customers to meet their water quality objectives by providing eco-efficient solutions that reduce and recover costs, energy, resources and space. Collaboratively solving problems with our customers, we deliver low-risk innovative technologies that offer sustainable, effective results.  We ensure greater water confidence and environmental stewardship for people, industries and municipalities, improving the lives of millions of people.
