WILLIAMSVILLE, NY, July 15, 2005 (PRNewswire-FirstCall) -- CVF Technologies Corp.'s holding, Biorem -- which is 32% owned by CVF -- has received a purchase order from the city of Toronto to undertake a one year pilot odor control study at Ashbridges Bay, Canada's largest wastewater treatment plant located at the foot of Leslie Street in Toronto.
The results of the CDN$100,000 [US$81,903] pilot may be used to develop engineering performance data required to design a full scale BiofiltairTM
"Depending on the scope of supply, this 2007 installation is estimated at somewhere between CDN$8-10 million [US$6.55-8.19 million]," said Brian Herner, President and CEO of Biorem. "It would set a new record in size of installation for a municipal biofilter and is consistent with the growth we are seeing in this market." Biorem previously installed a CDN$1 million [US$819,034] biofilter system at this same plant in 2001 for successful control of odor emissions from a new sludge loadout facility. Other large installations completed by Biorem include two 425,000 cubic meters per hour (250,000 cubic feet per minute) systems at meat by-product rendering plants.
Biorem (www.biorem.biz) manufactures Biosorbens a high- efficiency permanent biofilter media and is a leading supplier of biofilters for air pollution control in municipal and industrial applications including the Basys modular and Biofiltair field erected systems. With over 100 installed systems and over a decade of experience, the Corporation's groundbreaking biofilters are the technology of choice for wastewater treatment plants and pumping stations across North America.
