OTTAWA, April 10, 2014 /CNW/ - Clearford Industries Inc. ("Clearford" or the "Company"), (TSXV: CLI), today announced that it has entered into an agreement with UV Pure Technologies Inc., a Canadian company based in Toronto, Ontario to be its exclusive distributor for UV Pure's water purification products in the Colombia Market.
Clearford Industries is currently installing a turnkey water and wastewater system for a green community near Bogota, Colombia. The system will harvest rain water to augment freshwater supplies and will use Clearford Smart Digesters™ and structured wetlands to recycle all wastewater. UV Pure's systems will provide disinfection of the reuse water before it is sent from a storage tank to a separate water reuse distribution network. Clearford also plans to offer UV Pure systems for disinfection of potable water in communal and point-of-use applications throughout Colombia.
Decentralized water and wastewater treatment systems are playing a growing part in helping Colombia expand treatment capabilities, protect public health and preserve source waters in the nation's rural and suburban regions. Clearford Industries is delivering turnkey solutions to developments in these regions and has now added UV Pure Technologies' disinfection to its solutions offerings to provide a higher standard of safety in potable water and reuse applications.
"UV Pure products were very well received and generated high interest when we presented them at the Cleantech Seminar held in Bogota last month", said Clearford CEO Kevin Loiselle. The Cleantech summit was an Ontario Government-led trade mission to Colombia with the support of the Canadian Embassy.
"Developers building self-sufficient, communal water systems are very interested in the performance and ease of use that UV Pure Crossfire technology offers—there's nothing else like it in Colombia," said Jose Maria Gonzalez, Vice-president of Business Development for Clearford. "The high UV dose, self-cleaning capabilities and safety features of these systems are very attractive to ensure treatment standards are consistently met to protect public health and the environment."
Rick VanSant, President and CEO of UV Pure Technologies said: "We are excited about the opportunity in Colombia to combine two differentiated, advantaged technologies that create an end-to-end solution with significant benefit in a country focused on transforming access to clean water, water reuse, and treatment of wastewater. Together, Clearford Industries and UV Pure provide great performance and cost advantages compared to conventional water and wastewater treatment. We believe the Clearford team's local market knowledge and relationships in Colombia will accelerate acceptance and distribution of our technology there."
