Kando announces new partnership with Scottish Water to implement wastewater intelligence

Kando, a data intelligence solution provider specializing in wastewater analysis, has announced a new partnership with Scottish Water to implement its wastewater intelligence solution and bolster its ability to harness wastewater for the benefit of community and public health.

Kando has also announced that Dr. Andrew Engeli has joined the company as VP Community Health Strategy and Services to facilitate the company’s growing outreach efforts.

Raw sewage from storm overflows and constant emission of wastewater containing harmful pathogens is an escalating problem, and often water utilities are insufficiently equipped to respond to the public health challenges posed by these issues. Additionally, effective wastewater analysis can have a game-changing impact on community health, with modern technology capable of leveraging wastewater analysis to monitor the spread of viral diseases or measure the impact of particular community health initiatives.

Kando’s partnership with Scottish Water will see the company implement its cutting-edge wastewater management technology across hundreds of assets, equipping the water utility with a real-time alert system capable of unlocking a wide range of actionable insights.

“We were impressed by the offering, experience, and professionalism from Kando which should enable us to bring this wastewater treatment works back into compliance,” said Steven Boon, Wastewater Treatment Area Manager for Scottish Water.

In addition to announcing its new partnership with Scottish Water, Kando is also welcoming experienced public health professional Dr. Andrew Engeli, who joins the company as VP Community Health Strategy and Services. Dr. Engeli was previously Deputy Director for Innovation at the Joint Biosecurity Centre (JBC) and Deputy Director for EMHP at the UK Health Security Agency, and his onboarding cements Kando’s reputation as a leading player in the UK market.

“I am very excited to be working together,” said Dr. Andrew Engeli, VP Community Health Strategy and Services for Kando. “Digital water – and digital wastewater – is the future, and Kando is leading the way, turning the vision of a smart, networked wastewater system into a reality that can improve communities and impact lives.”

Kando has a proven track record of market leadership in the field of wastewater intelligence, having spearheaded Israel’s efforts to track COVID-19 and its variants in collaboration with Israel’s Ministry of Health, as well as partnering with numerous municipalities in the US, Europe, and beyond to implement its innovative technology.
