MONTREAL, July 23, 2012 /CNW Telbec/ - Sofame Technologies Inc. (TSXV: SDW) (OTC.PK: SFMGF), a leading manufacturer of environmentally efficient and cost effective heat recovery systems for traditional fossil-fuel fired equipment, CO2 and NOx reduction technologies, and 50,000,000 BTU/Hr DIRECT-CONTACT water heaters, is pleased to announce an important agreement with a new manufacturers' representative in Western Canada. Exclusive Boilers, Burners & Controls, (EBBC) through their technical sales division, Canada Powerhouse, has begun to market and support Sofame's award winning water heating systems in Alberta, Saskatchewan, and the North West Territories. Across North America, nineteen highly skilled and qualified representative firms now promote and sell Sofame commercial, institutional, and industrial waste heat recovery and water heating solutions.

Exclusive Boilers, established in Western Canada in 2004, has become one of Western Canada's leading manufacturer's representatives for providing a complete offering of best-of-class equipment and services for commercial, institutional, industrial and infrastructure markets. Canada Powerhouse's product groups include: Cogeneration, CHP (Combined Heat & Power), Biomass, Industrial Boilers, Chimney and Duct Systems, Water Treatment Equipment, Custom Vessel Fabrication, Heat Exchangers, and Instrumentation, while providing rental solutions for boilers, steam/diesel/natural gas turbines, and generators (www.canadapowerhouse.com).
According to Dale Mazur, General Manager of EBBC, "Sofame is a game changer for mid-size to large fossil fuel consumers or industrial processes which generate usable waste heat in a stack. We believe a large chunk of that proverbial "efficiency/emission" elephant in the room can be quickly and efficiently reduced, and then removed using Sofame's technology. With our Co-generation capabilities, at the existing and aging consumer platforms, not only will energy centers realize benefits, but the downstream exhaust side of turbines can also be addressed. By realizing the benefits of reducing fuel consumption as well as emissions, while owners significantly reduce operating costs, finally, an economical solution is available. The ability to immediately apply Sofame's' proven, patented industrial technology to existing gas fired emissions-producing equipment and upgrading 60% efficient systems to 99%, without changing the users' processes, will be a primary focus for Canada Powerhouse and Exclusive Boilers in Western Canada. The financial burden of removing existing combustion platforms and replacing them with new equipment can now be negated. New equipment locations should consider the economics of Sofame on the downstream-side of their economizers. We looked very hard at other technologies and realised that Sofame's' patented technology exceeded our expectations."
According to John Gocek, Sofame's President and CEO, "The opportunity to work closely with Exclusive Boilers (EBBC) in Western Canada to make facilities, boiler rooms, central heating and cogen plants more efficient is a major boost to Sofame's sales efforts. We are focusing on projects with payback under two years while achieving significant emissions reductions."
