Suprafilt’s Director Graeme Fielden said: “I think we have plenty to talk about this year when we speak to the judges. To get through to the next round is fantastic news for the whole team.
“In the last six months we have moved to larger premises and we are winning larger contracts based on our credibility and reputation. We have also invested heavily – not just financially, but also in our team – and to be acknowledged in prestigious awards like the BIBAs recognises and praises the entire team for their hard work.”
Suprafilt, which has worked with many of the major utility companies such as Thames Water, Yorkshire Water, United Utilities and Severn Trent Water, has grown significantly in recently years.
It has helped major sewage and water treatment works save tens of thousands of pounds in energy and has resolved long standing odour and environmental issues for its clients.
The announcement comes in the same week as Suprafilt was named as runner up in the Education In Business Award category of the Made In The North West Awards, won by the University of Liverpool’s Virtual Engineering Centre.
Suprafilt is currently working with the University of Sheffield on a £2.2million research project to find a more economic and sustainable way of producing bio-ethanol.
