BURNABY, BC, Canada, July 22, 2009 -- ECOfluid Systems Inc. is proud to announce that the county of Volusia, Florida, has decided on the Upflow Sludge Blanket Filtration (USBF™) process, locally supplied by Randazza Enterprises Inc., for one of their new wastewater treatment facilities.

After a thorough evaluation of all processes and technologies, including USBF™, SBR, and MBR, Volusia County and its consulting engineers decided that a USBF™ plant provided them with increased value that did not compromise any treatment efficiency or effectiveness. The contract was awarded to Randazza Enterprises Inc. in June 2009 and is now currently under construction with start-up scheduled for the first quarter of 2010. The county will utilize the high quality effluent in reusable applications.

"Based on the high effluent quality, low operating and maintenance requirements, and the history of reliability the USBF™ process presented, it was really a no-brainer for the county," said Nocif Espat of Randazza Enterprises. "Combine that with the significantly reduced capital cost compared to other technologies and you have a win-win situation for everyone involved."

Randazza Enterprises Inc., is the supplier of the award winning Upflow Sludge Blanket Filtration (USBF™) wastewater treatment technology in the state of Florida.

ECOfluid Systems Inc. provides wastewater treatment solutions for residential, industrial, commercial, municipal and decentralized applications.
