BlueDot Franchise Equipment Including RDX MicroScreen System to be Operated by Stanford University's Dr. Craig S. Criddle
SCOTTSDALE, AZ and CALGARY, AB, Sept. 8, 2014 /CNW/ - RDX Technologies Corporation ("RDX" or the "Company") (TSXV: RDX, OTCQX: RGDEF, FSE:RL7), a water treatment and energy technology company, today announced that a contract has been executed with Stanford University for the sale of RDX's BlueDot franchise based water treatment equipment, including RDX's patented microscreen equipment.
Dennis M. Danzik, Chief Executive Officer of RDX, stated, "Our congratulations to RDX team member Matthew Bokenkroger, from our Kansas City office for working with Dr. Criddle to launch this exciting opportunity involving collaboration between Stanford University and RDX. The knowledge gained in the future through Dr. Criddle' s work will be invaluable to many people around the world, as water resources are starting to take center stage and conservation efforts in certain areas is becoming critical. We at RDX are all very proud that Dr. Criddle and Stanford chose RDX."
Matthew Bokenkroger, Manager – RDX Commercial Equipment Division, added, "The system, which integrates the RDX microscreen process at Stanford is a key element of RDX's recovery systems that involves effectively combining the right RDX technologies to convert specific wastes into valuable products and reusable water. It will be a key component of our Blue Dot facilities being rolled out now to support commercial customers in key markets."
Craig S. Criddle - Professor, Environmental Engineering & Science stated "For our research, sustained reliable performance of a waste water system, including the microscreen, is critical. This is because we plan to use the effluent from this unit as the influent to novel secondary treatment units. We selected the RDX equipment based upon its reliable performance in other applications of similar scale."
About Dr. Craig Criddle:

Craig Criddle is interested in the environmental engineering, science, and science literacy needed for clean water, clean energy, and healthy ecosystems. His research focus is environmental biotechnology. He is best known for large interdisciplinary field projects, studies of microbial ecology in bioreactors, and work on microbial transformations of persistent contaminants. Some current projects include a field-scale evaluation of uranium remediation; DNA-monitoring of microbial community structure at full-scale biological wastewater treatment plants; development of membrane bioreactors for energy recovery and nutrient removal; and studies to elucidate the mechanisms and kinetics of microbial transformation of halogenated solvents. To promote science literacy, he worked with award-winning San Francisco cartoonist, Larry Gonick to write "The Cartoon Guide to Chemistry". "Cartoons can give us an intuitive feeling for the why, and deeper understanding can grow from that intuition".
Conference Call – The RDX Growth Model
The Company will host a business update conference call entitled "The RDX Growth Model" on Thursday, October 9thth at 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time.
