OTTAWA, Jan. 18, 2012 /CNW/ - Seprotech Systems Incorporated (TSX.V:
SET; "Seprotech" or the "Company") is pleased to announce that a
Canadian Consortium lead by the Company and including WESA Group Inc.
of Ottawa, Ontario, has been awarded a contract in the Middle-East
valued at approximately $ 4 Million CAD for environmental engineering
and construction supervision services. The contract is for a Naturally
Engineered Wastewater Treatment (NEWT) system at an industrial facility
currently under construction for a bauxite mine and aluminum smelter in
the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia.
The project is an ecological wastewater treatment system designed to mimic the cleansing functions of wetlands. The process is based on fixed-film technology and the ecological
functions of a natural tidal wetland. "This is a very important project
for Seprotech and represents our first contract in the Middle-East
where water scarcity and conservation are paramount as they represent a
major hurdle to economic growth," said President & CEO Harry Marshall.
"We have only been working with our new partner in Saudi Arabia for 3
months and this relationship is already bringing in excellent results.
"The contract also reinforces new Management's strategy to expand
Seprotech's technology reach through diverse processes and to
concentrate on specific international partners with strong local
presence, and with engineering capabilities complimentary to
Seprotech's," continued Mr. Marshall. "We look forward to expanding
our presence and new contracts in The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia and the
Middle-East as a whole over the coming year."

solutions to the municipal/land development, resource sector and
military market place, including Reverse Osmosis water purification
