Fourth time's a first! JWC Environmental proves its ingenuity once again as 2006 WEF Innovative Technology Winner.

COSTA MESA, CA, Aug. 25, 2006 -- JWC Environmental previously demonstrated their industry excellence by winning the WEF Innovative Technology Award in 1997 for the revolutionary Auger Monster® screen -- then four years later in 2001, the company's visionary engineers produced another winner with the Screenings Washer Monster®; and again in 2003 with the Honey Monster™ Septage Receiving System. Now, JWC proudly accepts its fourth WEF award for the Monster Separation System, making it the only company to receive more than two WEF awards.

The Monster Separation System® is this year's winner of the Water Environment Federation coveted 2006 Innovative Technology Award in the Solids Handling / Disposal category. The presentation will take place at WEFTEC, North America's premiere water quality technical conference and exposition in Dallas, Texas in October. This award is presented to the WEF Member who introduces the most innovative new product or service related to the construction, operation or maintenance of water pollution control facilities.

"JWC is proud of its heritage of innovation,." said Fritz Egger, JWC's Director of Marketing. "We constantly strive to provide our customers with leading-edge solutions to enhance their operations. We are very pleased that WEF recognizes the advancements we have made over the years, as we have continued to develop systems of increasing complexity, all integrating the tremendous benefits of solids reduction."

Competition was rigorous, as each nominee was required to provide extensive detail on the innovative aspects of the product's capability, design and field application. The Monster Separation System met all the criteria due primarily to its unique combination of a Finescreen Monster™ or Bandscreen Monster™ to capture and remove solids, and the award winning Screenings Washer Monster, a self-contained, hopper fed system used to wash, dry and compact them. The result is drier, more compact, lighter and cleaner solids than conventional technologies can produce. Field results have shown a tremendous reduction in landfill volume and cost, as well as reduction in odors. Studies have shown the SWM achieves dry solids content of 50% or more and a reduction in the cubic volume of material by 80% or more.

With this impressive combination, a long list of features and benefits and outstanding field performance, it's clear why WEF chose JWC's Monster Separation System as recipient of the 2006 Innovative Technology Award!
