The Nassau County award has given us a solid blueprint to accomplish similar awards within shorter sales cycles.  Just in the last two weeks, we have received letters of intent from two municipalities in the Hurricane "Sandy" effected areas in the Northeast, and discussions continue with many other municipalities in and outside the "Sandy" effected region as well," commented Glenn Rink, CEO of Abtech Holdings, Inc.
