BioteQ Secures First Contract for Mobile Sulf-IX(TM) Pilot Plant

BioteQ Secures First Contract for Mobile Sulf-IX(TM) Pilot Plant 
VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA -- (Marketwire) -- 02/13/13 -- BioteQ
Environmental Technologies Inc. (TSX:BQE), a leader in the treatment
of industrial water and process solutions, has secured the first
testing contract for its mobile Sulf-IX(TM) pilot plant with a
leading industrial company. The test work will be carried out at a
customer site in the US and will focus on the removal of sulphate
from wastewater generated from flue gas treatment. Completion of the
test work is expected during the second quarter of this year. 
The mobile pilot plant, a joint initiative of BioteQ and Newalta,
provides on-site field testing for sulphate removal from wastewater.
The unit applies BioteQ's novel ion exchange based Sulf-IX(TM)
technology. The Sulf-IX(TM) 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.  
"We are seeing greater scrutiny and regulation relating to sulphate
discharge in many jurisdictions around the world. This contract
provides an opportunity to demonstrate the flexibility and
functionality of Sulf-IX(TM) technology in a new sulphate removal
application," said BioteQ CEO, Jonathan Wilkinson. "The signing of
this contract also represents an exciting opportunity to apply the
technology in a market vertical outside of hard rock mining."
