FORT LAUDERDALE, FL, Sept. 8, 2005 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Solucorp Industries Ltd. announces that it has signed an agreement with Ensco Caribe Inc., part of the Ochoa Group -- a large remediation company in Puerto Rico that specializes in hazardous waste remediation throughout the Caribbean. Ensco will have the sole rights to market, use and sell Solucorp's patented MBS® technology throughout the island of Puerto Rico and the rest of the Caribbean. This agreement will allow Solucorp to increase exposure in Puerto Rico and the Caribbean Islands of its EPA "SITE" (Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation) Program proven MBS (Molecular Bonding System) Technology. Puerto Rico is home to several well publicized environmental hazardous heavy metal contaminated sites that are in immediate need of Solucorp's technology.
"We're confident that Ensco's engineering capabilities combined with Solucorp's Military Licensee, Destiny International, will provide Solucorp with the presence and support needed to continue our assault on the contaminated military base clean-up project on the island of Vieques," said Rich Runco, President of Solucorp. Destiny is actively pursuing all aspects of Military Business for Solucorp and concentrating on imminent environmental problems resulting from Congressional approval of military base closures (BRAC) throughout the United States and Europe. Ensco, a leader in site and soil remediation is contractually required to use Solucorp's MBS technology for all of their future heavy-metals remediation projects including those identified by Solucorp.
Ensco has handled numerous large projects throughout the island of Puerto Rico and the Caribbean and has established a reputation for targeting and eliminating contaminated sites that present serious environmental and health problems.
Solucorp Industries Ltd., a Canadian corporation is parent to three U.S. corporations including: Solucorp Industries, focusing on the metals remediation and pollution prevention industries. Solucorp's patented MBS technology began development over twenty years ago and offers a permanent solution to heavy metals pollution problems. MBS has also undergone EPA MEP (Multiple Extraction Procedure) testing demonstrating its ability to prevent the return of metal pollution for in excess of 1,000 years. Since being patented, MBS has been used throughout the United States and Canada as well as the UK, Italy, China and Argentina. This technology can be reviewed on the EPA website at www.epa.gov by typing in the New Search Space, "Molecular Bonding System." This technology is also presented in a publication produced by the EPA titled Superfund Innovative Technology Evaluation (SITE) Program, Technology Profiles 10th Edition, and Demonstration Program.
The Integrated Fixation System (IFS) technology was developed from Solucorp's EPA SITE Program proven MBS process. The IFS technology deals with pollution prevention rather than existing contamination problems. It prevents future contamination from metals such as lead, mercury, arsenic, chromium (hex or tri), cadmium, zinc, nickel, selenium, antimony, barium, beryllium, silver, thallium and vanadium.
WITS Inc., founded in 2001 and purchased by Solucorp in June 2004, is capable of supplying package systems to treat contaminated wastewater as low as 20 gallons per minute and upwards of 200 gallons per minute.
