(BQE.TO), a leader in industrial wastewater treatment, has secured a second contract for the mobile Sulf-IX™ pilot plant. The contract is with the same leading industrial company for which the initial Sulf-IX™ pilot work was undertaken earlier this year. The test work will be carried out at the same site in the US and will advance findings from the first test to remove sulphate from wastewater generated from flue gas treatment. Completion of the test work is expected during the fourth quarter of this year. The mobile Sulf-IX™ pilot plant, which is based on BioteQ's proprietary technology, is owned by Newalta Corporation. Newalta and BioteQ will be undertaking the test work jointly with Newalta providing operations personnel and expertise, and BioteQ providing process support and technical expertise. Jonathan Wilkinson, BioteQ's Chief Executive Officer stated, "We are pleased to have secured a second contract with the same customer to further validate and integrate Sulf-IX™ technology into the customer's process flowsheet. We are highly confident of the technology's ability to generate successful results during this round of testing and would hope to then move discussions forward to commercial implementation." The mobile pilot plant provides on-site field testing for sulphate removal from wastewater. The unit applies BioteQ's novel ion exchange based Sulf-IX™ technology. The Sulf-IX™ process produces treated effluent with low residual sulphate concentrations for re-use or discharge. The only by-product of the process is a solid gypsum product. Data collected from pilot plant testing is used to generate design criteria for a full-scale facility.
