First American sells 2 KDS Micronex(TM) Systems to a Fraser Valley Waste Management consortium to convert chicken waste into energy for heating greenhouses

Apr 02, 2001, 01:00 ET from First American Scientific Corp.

    VANCOUVER, April 2 /PRNewswire/ - C.L. Kantonen, Chairman of FASC is
 pleased to announce that FASC has received a signed purchase agreement and
 deposit to supply two (2) KDS systems to be installed in the central Fraser
 Valley region of BC, Canada. A pilot plant, costing $ 1.2 million Cdn, will be
 constructed by B & B Poultry Waste Management Inc to process approximately 72
 tons of chicken waste per day through the KDS machine converting it to a fine
 dry powder which will be fed into state-of-the-art powder burners. This will
 generate sufficient energy to heat approximately 64 acres of greenhouses at
 one half the cost of heating with natural gas. The facility is expected to
 commence operation before the end of June 2001.
     According to the group's spokesman, " we have access to enough chicken
 manure to provide heat and CO2 for 250 acres of greenhouses and estimate that
 potential fuel savings for the Fraser Valley region could be in excess of $ 14
 million Cdn annually, about a 50% reduction in heating costs. The process also
 solves disposal and pollution problems caused by chicken waste accumulation."
     Additionally, the group has been granted the right to purchase an
 additional ten (10) KDS machines within one year at a 10% discount, and the
 exclusive right to service the Fraser Valley growing region with additional
 installations. In exchange, First American will be permitted to use the pilot
 facility to demonstrate the merits of the process to other potential
 purchasers who operate outside the region.
