KCI is pleased to announce our new partnership with Brazilian firm Global Science and Technology Bio, SA (GCTbio) to provide integrated research, development, engineering and geospatial solutions for land management, water, wastewater and renewable energy projects. 

The KCI/GTCbio partnership will initially focus on development and integration of customized geographic information systems for cadastral land mapping and data management that can be used by both public and private-sector organizations in Brazil. The firms will also focus on development, sharing and implementation of advanced technologies in wastewater treatment and bio-energy.

GTCbio applies scientific and engineering principals to develop integrated solutions for biotechnology products and processes; industrial wastewater treatment; production and use of water and energy; and mitigation of greenhouse gas emissions in order to create a sustainable supply chain. Originally founded with a focus on research, development and innovation, GTCbio works with clients to promote integration between technology and management systems in order to identify solutions that overcome challenges, reduce costs, and extend benefits beyond immediate goals, thereby producing compounded results.

KCI also aims to encourage highly qualified, recently graduated student engineers and scientists in Brazil to participate in professional internships with the firm. Working with the Ciência Sem Fonteiras (Brazilian Scientific Mobility Program) initiative, KCI will identify and train Brazilian students who will then return home and thus contribute to the internal education and scientific capacity of the country. The company further intends to hire some of the interns to represent and grow the firm locally in Brazil.


KCI is an engineering, consulting and construction firm serving clients throughout the U.S. and beyond. With revenues of approximately $146 million in 2012, KCI is ranked 81 on the Engineering News-Record's list of the top 500 engineering firms in the country. Roughly 1,000 KCI employee owners provide environmental, transportation, telecommunications, construction, facilities, and land development services from more than 20 locations.
