TORONTO, Nov. 3 /CNW/ - Dr. Gene Shelp, President and CEO of ENPAR Technologies Inc. (TSX:ENP),("ENPAR") is pleased to report that construction of the AmmEL-LC ammonia treatment unit is proceeding ahead of schedule. Last week, management met with the client to view the status of the construction and we are pleased to report that the client was extremely impressed with the quality of the workmanship and personnel. In response, ENPAR received the second installment of approximately $290,000.
At the current rate of construction, management anticipates that the system should be ready for shipping by the first week of December. Installation and commissioning could potentially be completed before year-end.
Dr. Shelp stated: "The Company is extremely pleased with the progress to date and is very excited about the future for this leading edge ammonia treatment system. We look to early 2010 when the system is fully commissioned and available with the client's approval, for on-site tours."
The AmmEL System is an electrochemical treatment process that has proven extremely effective at converting ammonia to environmentally friendly nitrogen gas at temperatures that are just above freezing, thereby enabling the year round treatment and discharge of water that meets environmental guidelines. Unlike conventional biological nitrification systems, the AmmEL System does not produce nitrate as a by-product.
Applications of the AmmEL System were recently reviewed in the fall issue of "INFLUENTS", the official publication of the Water Environment Association of Ontario. This article has resulted in numerous inquiries which management believes will result in future business opportunities.
