Sponsored by

ALBUQUERQUE, NM, May 20, 2009 -- MIOX Corporation, a leader in on-site generation of hypochlorite and mixed oxidants for water disinfection, announced the company's small, medium and large mixed-oxidant generators received certification from the Japan Water Works Association (JWWA) through a partnership with Sojitz Corporation, one of the largest trading companies in Japan. The MIOX systems are the first on-site generators certified by JWWA.

The MIOX systems were evaluated using Material Leaching and Chemicals Additive tests. Examination of the results determined each of the systems met the JWWA technical standard, manufacturing and quality standard, as well as the certification guidelines outlined in JWWA's "On-Site Chemicals Generator Certification Manual."

MIOX on-site generators are used to treat water supplies and well sites where biofilm, chlorine residual maintenance, disinfection by-product formation, or taste and odor have become issues. They are sized based on requirements for pounds per day (PPD) of free available chlorine (FAC).

"We are very pleased our product performance exceeds the high standards set by the Japan Water Works Association," said Carlos Perea, President and CEO of MIOX. "This is an important market for MIOX and we look forward to our partnership with Sojitz Corporation to introduce safe water treatment and disinfection technologies to Japan."

MIOX's clean technologies treat water using only salt, water and power to generate a dilute disinfectant on site. Creating disinfectant on site is safe, cost effective and environmentally responsible, cutting back transportation requirements, reducing carbon emissions and fuel consumption, and eliminating the storage and disposal of chemical containers.

MIOX Corporation is focused on solving one of the world's most pressing issues: the need for affordable, safe, and healthy water. MIOX's patented water disinfection technology replaces the need to purchase, transport and store dangerous chemicals.
