MIOX to treat reclaimed water for Pensacola plant

• MIOX Corporation's RIO water disinfection systems will treat 20 million gallons per day of Pensacola, Florida's wastewater for industrial reuse

ALBUQUERQUE, NM, July 18, 2008 -- MIOX Corporation has been selected by Baskerville-Donovan Inc. to supply five RIO Series on-site sodium hypochlorite generators for the final disinfection phase at the Emerald Coast Utilities Authority's (ECUA) new Central Water Reclamation Facility (CWRF) in Pensacola, Florida. Each RIO unit has a 500-pound per day capacity and will treat 20 million gallons of wastewater per day. The new treatment facility, expected to be complete in 2010, will replace the aging Main Street Wastewater Treatment Plant.

The RIO units will produce up to 20 million gallons of effluent per day, and the disinfected water will be reused by Gulf Power's Crist Plant. Recycling the effluent discharge via industrial reuse minimizes the impact the facility's processes will have on the environment while enhancing the efficiency and reducing operational costs of both the Crist Plant and the CWRF.

The RIO generates a 0.8 percent sodium hypochlorite solution on site, on demand, by combining three common consumables - salt, water and electricity. Generating a chlorine equivalent on site eliminates the need to transport and store potentially dangerous chlorine gas and alleviates operational challenges associated with storing and injecting bulk sodium hypochlorite. The MIOX system product line is highly scalable with free available chlorine (FAC) ranging from 4 to 1,550+ lb/day.

MIOX Corporation's patented water disinfection technology replaces the need to purchase, transport and store dangerous chemicals, and is used in over 30 countries and in hundreds of communities across the U.S. for public drinking water systems, water reuse projects, and a variety of commercial and industrial applications.
