First American Scientific signs agreement
Vancouver, BC— Brian Nichols,
president of First American Scientific Corp. (FASC) announced
the signing of an MOU with the city of Prince George, BC, Canada
to assist in solving its environmental cleanup problems with sewage
sludge using the KDS Micronex system.
“This will be the first
operation of its kind in the world, says David Dungate, FASC’s
vice president of marketing, where the strictly regulated Class
B municipal sludge can now be cleaned, bagged and profitably sold
to the public as a soil amendment.” The initial runs will
be monitored for three months, and if satisfactory, the city plans
to establish a permanent facility utilizing up to 4 micronizers.
According to Dayton & Knight,
the city’s consulting engineers, “the series of tests
undertaken this summer 2005 at FASC’s Vancouver demonstration
site confirmed the ability of the KDS Micronex to consistently
convert Class “B” biosolids to Class “A”
biosolids and achieved an effective pathogen destruction rate
of 99.9 % in all test samples”
There are approximately 15,000
municipal wastewater treatment plants in North America alone that
process almost 34 billion gallons of domestic sewage and other
wastewater each day.
