BURLINGTON, ON, Nov. 1, 2011 /CNW/ - Eco Waste Solutions (EWS) is
pleased to announce that it has been awarded two new contracts to bring
point-of-need waste solutions to the mining and military sectors.
A multinational mining company operating in West Africa has selected EWS
to supply 3 ECO Model batch incinerators. This equipment will process
23 tonnes per day - all of the domestic waste generated on-site.
With large camps, the installation of these facilities can improve
sanitation by reducing vermin and disease vectors, enhancing personnel
health and safety. Utilizing clean burning systems to manage solid
waste also minimizes the environmental impacts of the mine and is
preferred to the long-term legacy of a landfill.
EWS also has been awarded a contract to supply the ECO Mobile
incineration system to a foreign Department of Defense. The fully
containerized mobile system has been procured as part of a readiness
program for public health protection.
Crises in recent history such as the Avian Bird Flu and H1N1 have
highlighted the need for governments to react quickly to quarantine and
destroy diseased animals. In these emergencies, most agencies resort
to open pit burning which is inadequate for infection containment and
creates air pollution. The ECO Mobile will provide rapid response to
the site of a disease outbreak and operates at temperatures that will
destroy even the more resistant prion - the infectious agent associated
with BSE (mad cow disease).
The ECO Mobile is designed to international military specifications and
is the most advanced mobile incinerator available globally. With
on-board pollution control and monitoring equipment it will meet the
strictest emissions standards in place today.
"This year, despite the slowdown globally, EWS has continued to grow.
Our business services markets that require proven solutions that
operate reliably with high environmental standards" said Eco Waste
Solutions President, Steve Meldrum. "Our equipment is unique in
delivering on these objectives."
Eco Waste Solutions (EWS) is a privately-held Canadian environmental technology company that
custom engineers and manufactures advanced thermal treatment
technologies for solid and liquid waste. For over 17 years we have
demonstrated leadership in design-quality, environmental integrity and
excellent customer service. Unlike many emerging technologies still in
development, the EWS systems are fully commercialized and process waste
reliably. Our technological innovations include 4G controls,
containerized mobile incinerators designed for rapid deployment and
scalable modular incinerators that can offer heat recovery in the form
of hot water, steam and small scale energy from waste.
