Biorem wins C$1.2mn in orders

The Biorem systems will be shipped to a petrochemical volatile organic compound removal project in Brazil, and an advanced two-stage biofiltration project at a wastewater treatment facility in South Africa. The other orders came from Ecuador and Israel.

The units are expected to be fully operational in the second quarter of 2010.

“We are pleased to report substantial progress in advancing our organic growth bookings internationally,” said Peter Bruijns, Biorem president and CEO. “These new orders reinforce management’s strategy to expand Biorem’s reach via product development and applications, as well as through geographic diversification. As a result of our strengthening competitive position in global markets and cost effective technologies, our Middle Eastern order marks our second contract win from the same customer. We will continue to develop our existing relationships to facilitate repeat business. Our international sales force will be a key driver in growing our sales in existing markets and penetrating new geographic markets.”
