GUELPH, ON, Canada, Oct. 5, 2009 -- BIOREM Inc. announced today that it has been awarded an advanced biofiltration project valued at $720,000. Under the terms of the agreement, Biorem will supply a two-stage air emissions control system ("the System") to remove the odorous compounds from the air at a municipal wastewater treatment facility located in southern British Columbia. The System, which includes a biotrickling filter followed by a biofilter with Biorem's permanent XLD media, is expected to treat approximately 9,000 cubic meters of complex contaminated air sources per hour. The System is expected to be fully operational in the second quarter of 2010.

"Odor and emissions control is increasingly becoming a key consideration for municipal and industrial companies, as air quality at the boundary of the site becomes progressively more regulated by legislators," said Peter Bruijns, President and CEO. "We are pleased by this contract win and are excited by the opportunity to increase our footprint in western Canada. We believe that this new project is further evidence of the market's recognition of Biorem as a leader in odor control in North America and in the quality and efficiency of our systems."
