U.S. Commerce Department and WWEMA Partner to Increase Exports of Environmental Equipment

By George Litman

Office of Environmental Technologies Industries

On May 8, 2003, Assistant Secretary of Commerce for Trade Development Linda Conlin signed a memorandum of understanding with the Water and Wastewater Equipment Manufacturers Association (WWEMA). The memorandum aims to increase private sector awareness of federal export promotion programs, to develop programs that encourage producers of environmental technologies, and to promote joint activities that enhance the export of U.S. environmental technologies.

At the 30th WWEMA Washington Forum, in May 2003, Assistant Secretary Conlin stressed the importance of public-private partnerships to maximize limited resources. “When U.S. companies export, they create good, high-paying American jobs and promote American values overseas,” Conlin stated. “ This memorandum will strengthen our efforts to enhance the international competitiveness of the U.S. environmental industry.”

Bob Wimmer, WWEMA chairman-elect, signed the memorandum on behalf of the association. “WWEMA members have a long history of working with the U.S. Department of Commerce,” Wimmer said. “This agreement will allow us to work more closely together and better assist WWEMA members in their export endeavors.”

WWEMA is a non-profit trade organization, founded in 1908, which represents the interests of companies that manufacture products sold to potable water and wastewater treatment industries. WWEMA members supply the most sophisticated products and technology, offering solutions to every water-related environmental problem and need society faces ( www.wwema.org).

Bush Administration Forms Iraq Reconstruction Task Force
to Help U.S. Firms Rebuild Iraq

(Source: www.ita.doc.gov/media)

The U.S. Department of Commerce recently formed the Iraq Reconstruction Task Force, which will help U.S. companies by serving as a clearinghouse of information on how to participate in the economic rebuilding of Iraq.

“The resources of the Iraq Reconstruction Task Force will provide a one-stop shop for U.S. companies looking for information and counseling on Iraq reconstruction efforts,” said Secretary of Commerce Donald L. Evans. “Businesses that are accustomed to an environment of opportunity and fairness can be our best ambassadors for democracy and freedom.”

The Iraq Reconstruction Task Force was created to anticipate the needs of U.S. companies seeking to participate in the rebuilding of Iraq. The task force, which is comprised of industry and trade experts within the International Trade Administration, works closely with other U.S. government agencies to ensure that the U.S. business community receives the information it needs regarding Iraq reconstruction efforts.

The U.S. Commerce Department launched a Web site, , and hotline, (866) 352-IRAQ or (866) 352-4727, as part of this effort. These services will provide U.S. companies with the most up-to-date information about commercial opportunities and conditions in Iraq. The Web site’s Business Guide for Iraq , for example, provides valuable information on key industry sectors, current reconstruction efforts, potential obstacles to doing business with Iraq, international economic sanctions against Iraq, and more.

“The Bush administration is committed to opening the lines of communication for businesses that want to participate in the rebuilding of Iraq,” said Kevin Murphy, deputy assistant secretary of commerce and chair of the Iraq Reconstruction Task Force. “The Commerce Department has always aimed to serve the needs of U.S. industry, particularly small and medium-sized businesses, so we wanted to help provide the timely information needed to make sound business decisions.”

An interagency team, from the U.S. Department of Commerce, U.S. State Department, U.S. Agency for International Development, and the U.S. Department of Defense, has provided additional outreach by holding several briefings for U.S. businesses about reconstruction efforts in Iraq. The Iraq Reconstruction Task Force is one part of the overall U.S. government effort to rebuild Iraq. Further information about the Iraq Reconstruction Task Force is available at www.export.gov/iraq.

Sea Sweep of Denver, Colo., is a small oil cleanup technology company with seven employees. It is internationally active, and it manufactures a product that absorbs crude oil, refined hydrocarbons, and chemicals on land or water. In December 2002, the company signed an exclusive marketing and sales agreement with Alta Tecnologia de Jalisco Int., S.A. de C.V., of Guadalajara, Mexico, for the country of Mexico. This relationship dates back to November 2001, when Bill Mobeck, president of Sea Sweep, participated in a trade mission to Mexico City, led by Colorado Gov. Bill Owens. Mr. Mobeck made several good contacts during the visit. He followed up by participating in a September 2002 event on Mexico’ ;s environmental infrastructure, which was co-sponsored by the U.S. Export-Import Bank and the Office of Environmental Technologies Industries. It was there that Mr. Mobeck solidified his relationship with Alta Tecnologia de Jalisco. Sea Sweep expects sales for the year 2003 will total $500,000 from customers such as Pemex and the Mexican Navy. Sea Sweep sells an absorbent material manufactured from a biomass product. The manufacturing employs a patented thermolytic process without the use of any chemicals. The patented product absorbs oils and refines hydrocarbons instantly upon contact and does not release what is absorbed. It extracts oil from oil-emulsion and keeps emulsions from forming. On water, it will float indefinitely after absorbing spilled material. Due to its non-leaching capabilities, the product prevents contamination of beaches, shorelines, and wildlife, including both marine and bird species. For more information about Sea Sweep, visit www.seasweep.com.

Lemna International of Minneapolis, Minn., has been selected for the turnkey supply of a municipal wastewater treatment plant for the city of Maturin, Venezuela. Lemna will design and build the facility, which will utilize one of Lemna’s proprietary wastewater treatment technologies. The value of the contract is $12.5 million; the contract is the key element of a $20-million project managed by Sir William Halcrow & Partners Inc., for the Venezuelan Ministry of the Environment. Services and equipment supplied from the United States for the project will be financed through the international bank HSBC, with loan guarantees from the Export-Import Bank of the United States. According to Viet Ngo, company president, this will be the first project for Lemna in Venezuela. “We are delighted to enter the Venezuelan market with this project, and we believe it will be the first of many,” said Ngo. “Venezuela has developed a comprehensive, long-term program to meet its wastewater treatment needs, and we hope to participate in many additional projects as the country moves forward with its plans.” Bryan DeSmet, Lemna vice president of engineering, added, “The Maturin wastewater treatment facility will utilize one of Lemna’ ;s proprietary technologies to treat the municipal wastewater to secondary treatment standards before discharge. This will protect the water quality in the receiving stream.” Lemna International is a worldwide infrastructure developer that implements projects on a turnkey, turnkey-plus-financing, or build-operate-transfer basis. Its parent company, Lemna Corporation, was established in 1983. Lemna has completed the design and construction of more than 250 projects in 14 countries ( www.lemna.com).

New U.S. Environmental Technology Exports to China . Four small U.S. environmental technology companies (Advanced Pollution Testing, MKS, Young, and ISCO) recently exported pollution-monitoring equipment worth $775,358 to Shangdong Province, China. Meanwhile, Environmental Dynamics Incorporated (EDI) of Columbia, Mo., won a project bid valued at $168,000 in Jiangsu Province, China, for an advanced technology wastewater treatment system and products. EDI, a small environmental technology company and Presidential “E” Award winner, offered value-added, U.S. manufactured, advanced technology and custom-engineered systems. EDI received support from the Office of Environmental Technologies Industries and the Advocacy Center of the U.S. Department of Commerce, the U.S. Commercial Service in Beijing, and the U.S. Export Assistance Center in St. Louis, Mo. Export sales for Advanced Pollution Testing, MKS, Young, and ISCO resulted from Montgomery Watson Harza’s $422,475 U.S. Trade and Development Agency feasibility study for the Shandong Environmental Monitoring System project. Montgomery Watson Harza anticipates additional export sales for the four companies this year, and the company expects to win a $300–800 million Asian Development Bank loan for air pollution.

U.S. Department of Commerce Unveils Standards Initiative to Reduce Barriers to Global Trade

(Source: www.commerce.gov)

Commerce Secretary Donald L. Evans recently announced the Standards Initiative to help break down trade barriers. The initiative is in response to industry concerns that foreign standards and technical regulation issues are becoming great challenges to expanding exports.

“The Bush administration remains committed to promoting competition and opening new markets for U.S. goods,” said Evans. “Standards and testing are key to our international competitiveness. But more and more we are hearing that foreign standards and testing requirements are keeping our products out of foreign markets. This is the wrong approach that reduces efficiencies, limits competition, and increases prices for the consumer goods. This eight-point initiative is an effort to create a more level playing field around the world.”

Foreign standards and methods used to assess conformity to standards can facilitate international trade, or they can be used intentionally or unintentionally to impede access to global markets. Many leaders in U.S. industry view foreign standards and technical regulation as a principal non-tariff barrier in markets around the world. Divergent standards, redundant testing and compliance procedures, and unilateral and non-transparent standard setting are now recognized as major impediments to free trade; they are estimated to affect 80 percent of world merchandise trade.

Further information about the Standards Initiative is available at . If your company has encountered specific trade barriers in the environmental technologies industry, visit www.environment.ita.doc.gov (click on “Trade Barriers” on the lower, left side of the page) and fill out our short survey on these barriers. Your input will be used in bilateral and multilateral negotiations.
