DALIAN, China, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire-Asia/ -- China Industrial Waste Management, Inc. (OTC Bulletin Board: CIWT) ("China Industrial Waste Management" or the "Company"), a leading environmental services and solutions provider in China, announced today that its Dongtai Organic Waste Treatment Project (the "Project") received its first payment of $120,000 from the sale of biogas (natural gas). The Company expects the Project to yield at least $180,000 per month in revenues from supply of natural gas when it reaches full capacity.
In accordance with the Company's franchise agreement with the local government, Dongtai Organic is entitled to process all of the sludge generated from the sewage treatment plants in the urban area of Dalian City. The Project generates revenues from two sources: (i) fees which are based on the volume of sludge processed and (ii) fees from the sale of biogas (natural gas) to the Dalian Gas Company. The Project has a designed capacity of 600 tons per day and is currently processing approximately 400 tons per day and supplying approximately 10,000 metric meters of natural gas per day. The Company anticipates the Project will reach 100% utilization within one-to-two years as more sewage treatment plants are constructed in the local area over. In addition, to help fill idle capacity, Dongtai Organic is actively seeking opportunities to process other degradable wastes, such as kitchen waste.
"We are pleased to see that the rate of biogas generation from our Dongtai Organic Waste Treatment Project is better than we initially expected," said Mr. Jinqing Dong, Chief Executive Officer. "The use of biogas (natural gas) as a supplement to the gas resources of the municipal gas network also represents a significant industry innovation in China. The successful operation of the Dongtai Organic Waste Treatment Project represents the viability and acceptance of anaerobic fermentation in China. We look forward to further promoting this technology in other cities in China as it has not just economic, but also social benefits."
