BURLINGTON, ON, Aug. 14, 2012 /PRNewswire/ - Eco Waste Solutions (EWS) is proud to announce its latest contract with the Canadian Department of National Defense. The contract, awarded to EWS on July 4, 2012, adds to the Canadian Forces inventory of Eco Waste Solutions systems.
The ECO Mobile waste incineration system is designed for rapid deployment to any location/climate. The system is part of a logistic support plan for increased self-sufficiency within base camps. Safely and effectively caring for waste within the base perimeter reduces reliance on outside parties and increases base security. Other users of EWS' proven commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) technology include NATO and UAE Armed Forces.
The Canadian Forces were specifically looking for a proven and mature technology to work reliably in extreme climates worldwide. The equipment is required to be containerized in 20 foot ISO shipping containers for rapid deployment. It had to be rugged and fit for purpose, but also meet the very strict Canada Wide Standards air emission limits for Waste Incineration. EWS stands alone as a vendor with verified capability in each of these areas.
Eco Waste Solutions has a successful 18 year track record supporting the Canadian military. "Our equipment has been relied upon in some of the Canadian Forces' most remote outposts for almost two decades - something our company is very proud of." said Eco Waste Solutions President, Steve Meldrum. "Now they will be able to take this equipment with them and ensure the same level of environmental quality in their operations abroad."
The ECO Mobile is the most advanced mobile incinerator available globally. This unique equipment is rapidly becoming the mobile waste system of choice for global expeditionary forces.
Eco Waste Solutions (EWS) is a privately-held Canadian environmental technology company that custom engineers and manufactures proven, advanced thermal treatment technologies for solid and liquid waste. Since 1994 we have demonstrated leadership in design-quality, environmental integrity and excellent customer service. Unlike many emerging technologies still in development, the EWS systems are fully commercialized and process waste reliably. Our technological innovations include 4G controls, containerized mobile incinerators and scalable modular incinerators that can offer heat recovery in the form of hot water, steam and small scale energy from waste.
