:: BioteQ Secures Contract for Selenium Removal Piloting


BioteQ Environmental Technologies, Inc., a leader in industrial waste water treatment, has secured a contract from Teck Resources Limited (Teck) to conduct pilot scale testing of its innovative new Selen-IXT technology for selenium removal. Under the terms of the agreement, BioteQ will construct and deploy a pilot scale plant for on-site field testing. BioteQ will retain ownership of the pilot plant and all associated intellectual property.

The total value of the contract will vary depending on the time required for adequate field testing but is anticipated to be approximately $900,000 CDN. Work under the contract is expected to be completed by late 2013. This contract follows successful laboratory testing that BioteQ conducted during 2012 and early 2013.

"BioteQ is very pleased to be moving its Selen-IXT technology from lab scale to the pilot plant stage," stated Jonathan Wilkinson, BioteQ's CEO. "The continuing development and deployment of this novel technology leverages BioteQ's existing technology platforms and capabilities. Selenium removal represents an expansion to our existing product portfolio and opens up new, significant market opportunities for the Company."

Selenium is essential to all life, but can affect aquatic life at higher concentrations. Selenium management is an important environmental issue that has been identified by regulators and mining organizations in North America.
