Sofame Energy Efficiency Solutions to be Sold in Latin America



    Monterrey-based Canromex S.de R.L. de C.V. to Reduce Energy Bills in
    Mexico

    MONTREAL, June 25 /CNW Telbec/ - Sofame Technologies Inc. (TSX-V: SDW), a
leading manufacturer of environmentally efficient industrial hot water systems
and cost efficient heat recovery equipment for traditional boilers, has signed
a representation agreement with Canromex of Monterrey, Mexico. Canromex is
currently positioned in the renewable energy market in Mexico and is
developing several landfill waste-to-biogas sites in their territory, which
includes Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Mexico, Nicaragua and
Panama.
    Robert Langlois, President of Canromex stated, "This is a great
opportunity for us to introduce in our market a leading technology that has
proven to be extremely efficient in reducing the energy consumption in
numerous commercial and industrial areas. Sofame's products align perfectly
with our goals and values at Canromex to help companies and governments to
optimize their energy sources and to reduce the impact on our environment."
    Michel Brisson, President & CEO of Sofame said "Sofame is pleased to
introduce its industrial energy efficiency solutions to the Mexican market and
into Latin America."
    Sofame's direct contact waste heat recovery systems can achieve double
digit fuel cost savings in certain thermal plants by recovering waste heat
from post-combustion flue gases and recycling it into cooler streams of water
or air. Sofame's ultra high efficiency water heating and heat recovery
products reduce both fuel costs and green house gas emissions in industries
such as food processing, cement and power generation and also in buildings.
    Sofame's technology is of particular interest because in addition to
reducing fuel costs for large industrial consumers of natural gas, it also
reduces carbon emissions, and the production of nitrogen oxide (NOX). With
over 300 systems installed to date, Sofame has helped cut GHG emissions by
150,000 tons a year. Over the past 20 years, Sofame technology has enabled
industry to cut its emissions by 1.8 million tons - the equivalent of taking
300,000 cars off the road for one year.
