BioteQ to deploy arsenic removal process for EcoMetales

Greentech Lead America: BioteQ Environmental
Technologies, an innovative clean technology provider in global industrial
water treatment, will develop basic engineering and laboratory testing related
to arsenic removal for a treatment facility to be built by EcoMetales in Chile.

Under the terms of the contract, BioteQ will provide
laboratory test work, process design and capital and operating cost estimates.
The work is expected to be complete by the end of the third quarter of this
year. Following the completion of this stage of work, BioteQ and EcoMetales
will negotiate a commercial agreement to advance the project to the next stage
of engineering and construction.

“We are pleased to secure a contract with our
channel partner in Latin America. The project is expected to lead to the supply
of a BioSulphide system in 2013, and an operating role commencing in 2014. This
project achieves a significant milestone in our relationship with EcoMetales
and our entry into the Latin American market,” said Jonathan Wilkinson,
BioteQ’s CEO.

The project will be based on BioteQ’s patented
BioSulphide process to generate hydrogen sulphide reagent on-demand, as a
reagent to recover and stabilize arsenic from smelter waste. BioteQ’s processes
can be economically applied to produce a stable arsenic product that can be
safely disposed, with a significant reduction in sludge production.
