EESTech signs desalination agreement in Australia

Sponsored by

LOS ANGELES, CA, Mar. 30, 2009 -- EESTech Inc. has signed a license agreement with Impulse Control Pty Ltd giving them access to manufacture and sell EESTech's JetWater System Technology for water purification projects within Australia.

EESTech (which stands for Economically and Environmentally Sustainable Technologies) owns or holds the rights to three environmentally sustainable technologies, including the JetWater technology, that have direct applications to the coal mining and energy industries. Impulse Control, is a progressive Australian based company with experience in water treatment for the burgeoning coal seam gas industry.

The agreement is timely as the Queensland Government has foreshadowed a change in policy that will not allow coal seam gas producers to continue to store contaminated water that has been removed from the mine to stimulate the gas flow, in holding ponds or discharged into waterways.

Impulse's General Manager, Mr Said Riachi said that the partnership with EESTech provides them with the final piece of the jigsaw as it will allow the contaminated water to be cleaned to near 100 percent purity, using a combination of reverse osmosis and thermal desalination methods.

EESTech's JetWater thermal desalination system has been rated in an international environmental and engineering consultant's report as being one of the world's leading water purification systems. The report rated the JetWater technology as one of the best overall in the market based on both technical and cost criteria.

Thermal desalination of water is based on evaporation, which replicates nature's own purification process, by heating water and condensing the steam.

Although the JetWater technology is based on well-known and widely understood chemical and thermo-dynamic principles, EESTech's development team has refined the processes to greatly increase effectiveness and efficiency.

EESTech's CEO, Mr Murray Bailey said that a major benefit of the technology is that it can purify up to 97 percent of the feed-water, compared to less than 75 percent by most membrane systems. This means that there is no need for evaporation ponds, which are unsightly, costly to construct and maintain and leave a long-term negative environmental legacy.
