LONDON, Ontario, May 13, 2002 -- As part of a massive effort to improve wastewater treatment in China, it was announced Monday that Trojan Technologies Inc. of Canada has been selected to provide ultraviolet disinfection systems to four municipalities in East China.

"We're delighted to have won our first municipal contracts in China -- a market where it is expected that up to $17 billion will be spent on wastewater treatment infrastructure over the next decade," said Trojan President & CEO Allan Bulckaert.

The four initial projects have a combined value of $1.2 million. All are scheduled for installation this summer, and together will treat a total of 242,000 m3 or 64 million gallons of water a day. Trojan was selected as the UV systems supplier because of its proven ability to provide safe, effective, and cost-efficient disinfection of wastewater.

While only about 13 per cent of China's wastewater is currently treated, the government plans to dramatically increase capacity so that 40-50 per cent is treated by 2010. It is estimated that some 2,000 wastewater facilities will have to be built or upgraded to achieve this goal.

"It's an extraordinary commitment, and one in which we believe Trojan can be a strategic partner," Bulckaert added. "We have the science and the solutions to help China dramatically improve its water safety."

Trojan is the global leader in the municipal wastewater market. There are nearly 3,000 municipal Trojan UV disinfection systems in over 25 countries treating a total of more than 45 million m3 or 12 billion gallons of water each day. The company has been serving the industrial-commercial market in China since 1996, and has been active in Asia for the past 15 years.

Trojan's systems use a series of specialized lamps that produce ultraviolet light. This UV energy destroys the water-borne pathogens, including E.coli, giardia and cryptosporidium. As well, UV does not form dangerous by-products such as trihalomethanes (THMs). It is environmentally clean and safe. There are no toxic chemicals and no risk of chlorine gas leaks.

Established in 1976 and headquartered in London, Ontario, Trojan is a high technology environmental company operating internationally. It designs, manufactures and sells UV systems for municipal wastewater and drinking water facilities, as well as for the industrial, commercial and residential markets. The company also provides environmental contaminant treatment for the removal of chemicals from water.
