GUELPH, ON Aug. 9 /CNW/ - BIOREM Inc. ("Biorem" or "the Company") (TSX-V: BRM), a leading clean technology company that designs and supplies high-efficiency biological-based air emissions control systems, announced today the receipt of a significant new order from Sinopec, of China valued at CAD $520,000.
Under the terms of the contract, Biorem's proprietary technology will be used to remove Ammonia, Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and Hydrogen Sulfide (H2S), at a Sinopec refinery in southern China. Biorem estimates the global industrial VOC market to be $1.6 billion with China being one of the most important markets.
China Petroleum & Chemical Corporation ("Sinopec") is China's largest producer and supplier of oil and petrochemical products, specializing in the exploration and production of oil and natural gas, oil refining and distribution, production and sales of chemicals. It ranked 17th in the 2007 Fortune Global 500 and 1st place among China Top 500 companies.
"This order reflects the growth potential for our air emission control technologies in the Chinese market. It demonstrates the impact that our presence in China is having to drive new business and our ability to form relationships and successfully leverage our world-class technology to gain positive returns," said Peter Bruijns, President and CEO. "Sinopec is one of China's largest integrated energy and chemical companies. As a new client, we believe there are additional potential opportunities for our technology within the global Sinopec family of companies."
Biorem has established a Wholly Foreign Owned Enterprise (WFOE) in China which enables the company to compete successfully against regional competitors. In addition, the WOFE allows Biorem to source components for the project locally and to manage the project from its offices in Beijing.
