This summer, we launched our Sustainable Earth Small Business Awards (SESBA) and selected 15 winners who showcased outstanding sustainability commitments. Our new podcast, The Green Scene, dives into conversations with SESBA winners about their journey as sustainable business owners.

In our 13th episode, Clearflow Group | Making Waves in Water Treatment, we sat down with Delia Van Heukelem, the supervisor of US operations at the water treatment company, Clearflow Group. Their main product is a flocculent block that causes sediments to clump together downstream for easy cleanup for construction sites, mining sites, industrial applications, and municipal applications. 

Flowing with Sustainability

Cleaning up wastewater from mining and construction can be expensive and difficult. Clearflow Group has simplified the way these industries treat wastewater by being more efficient. Their blocks save on labor hours, chemical use, and energy. Clearflow Group also helps companies figure out ways to recycle water so that wastewater doesn’t make its way into the environment in the first place. 

While sustainability is baked into the purpose of Clearflow Group’s products, the company is also looking for ways to lower the impact of its products. Through building team momentum behind sustainability initiatives, they are sourcing biodegradable materials, cutting packaging waste, and designing new products that use cleaner materials. 

Riding the Clearflow Group Wave

The company operates globally in at least 4 countries to help municipalities and industries clean, recycle, and treat wastewater. You can find out more on their website.
