BIOREM receives four U.S. orders for its biological based emission control systems07:00 EDT Monday, June 14, 2010GUELPH, ON, June 14 /CNW/ - BIOREM Inc. ("Biorem" or "the Company") (TSX-V: BRM) today announced that it has received four new orders totaling $1.3 million from customers in the United States for its biological based emission control systems."While our main focus is on applying our technology in new markets, we will continue to maintain our leadership position in our core odor control business. These orders reflect that we are maintaining momentum in booking new orders for our systems and now benefiting from the U.S. economic recovery and resumed municipal capital spending," said Peter Bruijns, President and CEO.The systems ordered consist of two custom-designed biofilters and one modular biofilter utilizing Biorem's proprietary Biosorbens(R) media to be installed at wastewater treatment plants. One system will treat 8,000 cfm of air produced from equalization tanks, the second much larger installation will treat 21,000 cfm of air produced from sludge holding tanks and a dewatering facility, while the third system will treat hydrogen sulfide concentrations from a headworks building. The fourth system is a multi-stage biotrickling filter designed to treat hydrogen sulfide at an average concentration of 50 ppm produced at a wastewater treatment facility's lift stations.About BIOREM Inc.Biorem is a leading clean technology company that designs, manufactures and distributes a comprehensive line of high-efficiency air emissions control systems used to eliminate odors, volatile organic compounds (VOCs), and hazardous air pollutants (HAPs).
